The Kansas City Chiefs fell to the New England Patriots, 43-40, on Sunday night for their first loss of the season despite a thrilling second-half rally.
The Patriots emerged ahead in the contest’s final seconds to conclude a wild second half of play that saw the lead change hands multiple times.
Trailing by 15 points as the second half began, the Chiefs put together a furious comeback to take the lead with just over eight minutes remaining in the game as quarterback Patrick Mahomes found wide receiver Tyreek Hill for a one-yard score.
