Mahomes completed 26 of 35 passes for 259 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-31 loss to Cincinnati. He added 25 yards on two rushing attempts.
After punting on the opening drive, the Chiefs reeled off four consecutive touchdown drives, which included touchdown passes of 29 yards to Demarcus Robinson and three yards to Travis Kelce from Mahomes. Kansas City had a 28-17 halftime lead but cooled off after halftime while Cincinnati's offense just kept chewing clock and scoring points. What looked like it could be a memorable performance early fizzled out into a subpar game by Mamomes' lofty standards, but the loss means the top seed in the AFC will remain in play in Week 18, so Mahomes will start the Chiefs' season finale in Denver.
