Pat Mahomes did it again—passing for 300 plus yards in his fifth straight game this season.
And Pat Mahomes also did it again when he threw for multiple TD’s for the third time this season.
But here’s something he didn’t do again this season—win.
Yup for the first time all season, the Chiefs lost a game—falling to the Patriots 43-40 in a wild Sunday Night game—and leaving the Los Angeles Rams as the NFL’s lone remaining undefeated team.
And it took every play in Tom Brady’s arsenal to knock out the Chiefs as the Pats blew a 15-point halftime lead before Stephen Gostkowski’s 28-yard field goal as time expired gave the Patriots the win.
New England led 24-9 at intermission, but Mahomes directed an impressive rally by Kansas City in the second half. He finished 23 of 36 for 352-yards in his first loss as a starting quarterback, with three of his four TD passes going to Tyreek Hill—including a 75-yard touchdown pass that tied the game with just over three minutes remaining.
Meanwhile, Brady passed for 340-yards and a touchdown and ran for another score in his 200th victory as a starting quarterback, tops all-time. Brady also passed former teammate Adam Vinatieri for most career wins in the regular season and playoffs combined with 227.
