From start to finish, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs dominated the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football to grab their sixth win of 2018.
The Chiefs offense has put up some huge numbers this season, but nothing tops what they did on Sunday night. Against the Bengals, the Chiefs put up a season high in points (45) and a season high in total yards (551). The yardage total was the Chiefs’ highest ever under Andy Reid and the team’s highest overall since 2004. Although Patrick Mahomes put up some eye-popping numbers (358 yards, four touchdown passes), Kareem Hunt stole the show with 181 total yards and three touchdowns. Oh, and let’s not forget that the Chiefs defense also had their best performance of the season, holding the Bengals to just 10 points and 239 total yards. To put that total in perspective, this game marked the first time all season the Chiefs even held an opponent under 350 total yards.
Want to be a Super Bowl contender? Fine. Then you at least have to play decent defense some of the time. The Chiefs, who vaulted to 6-1, turned in their best 60 minutes of the season on that side of the ball against the Bengals, who fell to 4-3. The 10 points were the Bengals’ season-low.
The Chiefs looked like the AFC’s best team on Sunday night, destroying the Bengals, 45-10. Both teams came into the game atop their respective divisions, and both teams would fall out of first place with a loss. Kansas City made sure the outcome was never in question, jumping out to a 14-0 lead, and stretching it to 24-7 at halftime before cruising through the final 30 minutes.
Patrick Mahomes II and the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night. When the quarterback arrived at Arrowhead Stadium, he was sporting a baseball jersey, but not just any jersey -- it was one with his dad’s name on the back:
