Mahomes completed 29 of 48 passes for 275 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday night's 20-17 win over the Giants. He also rushed three times for 10 yards.
Mahomes connected on his first eight passes before having an attempt bounce off the helmet of a teammate and then intercepted in the end zone to halt Kansas City's opening drive. That play gave Mahomes a seventh straight outing with at least one pick and he flirted a couple others Monday night as well. Nonetheless, the signal-caller still did enough to lead the Chiefs to victory, mostly by utilizing Tyreek Hill on crossing routes and finding targets close to the line of scrimmage. Although it again wasn't a pretty performance by Mahomes' standards, he'll now approach a Week 9 showdown against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming off a needed victory.
