Actually, a pretty great game this afternoon. Here's our run down for Sunday evening denizens . . .
Kansas City Winning
For the second Sunday in a row, the Kansas City Chiefs were tasked with winning a game without reigning MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the lineup. This one worked out better for Kansas City. Harrison Butker connected on a game-winning 44-yard field goal minutes after hitting a 54-yard field goal to tie the game, as the Chiefs defeated the Minnesota Vikings 26-23 at Arrowhead Stadium.
PLAY OF THE DAY!!!
Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams is starting his campaign to be the top option at running back. About halfway through the third quarter, Williams exploded for a long touchdown run. The play went for 91 yards and according to Chiefs' Public Relations, it's a career-long for Williams, the second-longest play of the season and it ties Jamaal Charles for the longest rushing touchdown in franchise history.
Kansas City Rally
4:17 PM ET Adam TeicherESPN Staff Writer Close Covered Chiefs for 20 seasons for Kansas City Star Joined ESPN in 2013 KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs might eventually look back at Sunday's win over the Minnesota Vikings as the one that allowed them to reach all of their goals.
Other Chiefs Step Up
Given the injuries top to bottom and the level of competition, the Kansas City Chiefs were going to need to play a well-rounded game in order to come up with a win over the Minnesota Vikings at home on Sunday afternoon.
More Than Mahomes?!?!
THAT JUST HAPPENED! Harrison Butker knocked through the game winning kick and the Kansas City Chiefs, who were once again without their MVP quarterback, moved to 6-3 on the year and are now 1-1 without Patrick Mahomes.
And the home team continues with the march toward the playoffs with persistent dreams and a reasonable shot in a horrible division . . .
