Chiefs 44, Cardinals 21
Patrick Mahomes threw for 360 yards and five touchdowns, lifting Kansas City to an impressive road win.
The game was never in doubt after the opening minutes, with Mahomes picking apart the Cardinals’ defense with his usual array of good decisions and deft passing touch. The quarterback was playing his first NFL game against Kliff Kingsbury, who coached Mahomes in college at Texas Tech and now leads the Cardinals.
The student put on quite a show for his mentor: The 2018 MVP threw three touchdown passes on Kansas City’s first three drives.
Tight end Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 121 yards and a touchdown. It was his 30th career game with at least 100 yards receiving. Clyde Edwards-helaire hauled in two touchdown passes.
Kansas City outgained Arizona 488 yards to 282. Mahomes completed 30 of 39 passes.
