NFL Week 6 kicks off with Chiefs win
Patrick Mahomes knows the Chiefs’ offense hasn’t quite gotten its act together for this season. And that was evident in the way Kansas City struggled against Denver on third down Thursday. The Chiefs continued to wreck on short gains and on the doorstep of the end zone.
So well is the defense playing that it was enough for Mahomes to throw for 306 yards and a touchdown and Harrison Butker to hit four field goals for the Chiefs to beat the Denver Broncos 19-8. They earned their 16th consecutive victory over their West Division rivals.
Travis Kelce hauled in nine receptions for 124 total yards for Kansas City, under the watchful eye of Taylor Swift, who was again supporting him from a suite at Arrowhead Stadium. But the Chiefs (5-1) leaned heavily on their defense to silence an erratic Russell Wilson and the Broncos (1-5).
Still, the Chiefs’ ineffectiveness in converting red zone drives into touchdowns nearly cost them the game. Three field goals by Butker aided a 16-0 lead, but Wilson’s touchdown pass to Courtland Sutton, ruled incomplete but reversed after a video review with six minutes to play, kept the Broncos alive.
Then came the two-point conversion on Javonte Williams’ carry. And what was a one-sided game turned into a one-possession game?
But the league’s worst defense couldn’t stop the Chiefs, and Mahomes connected on a 28-yard third-down pass from Rashee Rice that put Butker in position for a 52-yard field goal.
Swift watched a Chiefs game for the third time. The singer-songwriter began a relationship with Kelce a few weeks ago when the athlete invited her to a game after being unable to join her during her Eras tour. Swift flew in from Los Angeles, where she had walked the red carpet Wednesday for the premiere of a film about her concerts.
