In true Chiefs fashion, K.C. won a nail-biter against the Titans in overtime Sunday night. The Chiefs trailed 17-9 for a good portion of the game before tying things up in the fourth quarter on a Patrick Mahomes touchdown run. Mahomes picked up the two-point conversion with his legs as well, sending the game to overtime.
The Chiefs managed a field goal in overtime and the defense did its part in winning the game for K.C. The Chiefs’ defense was stellar for most of the night — it allowed just 23 yards on the ground to running back Derrick Henry in the second half and overtime combined, and forced the Titans’ offense to go 1-for-11 on third downs.
Kansas City continues its string of AFC South matchups against the Jaguars next week. The Chiefs are 1-1 against the AFC South this season, with a loss against the Indianapolis Colts from Week 3.
