The Kansas City Chiefs outlasted the Detroit Lions, 34-30, to win a wild, back-and-forth game at Ford Field on Sunday and remain unbeaten on the season.
After falling behind by three points with just over two minutes left, Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City on a 13-play, 79-yard drive to re-take the lead with just seconds left as tailback Darrel Williams plunged ahead for the go-ahead score.
Mahomes completed 24-of-42 passes for 315 yards in the game, but perhaps his biggest play of the day came on the ground. Facing a fourth-and-eight at midfield on the Chiefs’ final drive, Mahomes scrambled for 15 yards to move the chains and set up the eventual score.
The game included five lead-changes overall as Mahomes demonstrated why he’s the league’s reigning Most Valuable Player.
