The Chiefs scored in only one quarter but what a quarter it was.

Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes, and the Chiefs raced past the Oakland Raiders 28-10.

Sam Mellinger, Vahe Gregorian, Sam McDowell and Blair Kerkhoff break down the game that featured the second-best total passing yards in Mahomes’ young but already storied career.

Also, the Chiefs defense stepped up in a big way. After surrendering 10 points to open the game, the Chiefs didn’t allow another score.

This episode was originally broadcast as a Facebook Live video from the Red Zone Extra Facebook page.
