FINAL SCORE

Kansas City Chiefs 38, Los Angeles Chargers 28

Analyst Takeaways

Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes in his first start as the franchise quarterback, and displayed his impressive arm, going 15/27 for 256 yards. With Mahomes behind center, the Chiefs offense resembles one you’d see on Saturdays, as Andy Ried has tailored his playcalling to suit Mahomes’ strengths. It will be interesting to see how NFL defenses adjust against them in the coming weeks.

Although the Chiefs couldn’t get their running game going at full speed, Kareem Hunt looks just the same as he did a season ago, breaking multiple tackles and often dragging defenders after contact.
