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.
