It wasn’t the prettiest offensive performance but it just might have been the best defensive performance for Kansas City through four games as the Chiefs moved to 4-0 on the season after a 26-10 win over New England on Monday night.
Neither team scored a touchdown in the first half as Butker connected on field goals of 23 and 39 yards. Nick Folk for the Patriots was good from 43 yards to make it 6-3 at the midway point.
Kansas City offense finally got on the touchdown board with 42 seconds left in the third quarter on a Tyreek Hill shovel pass from 6 yards out to make it 13-3.
The touchdown by the Chiefs made sure that under Reid, Kansas City didn’t go three quarters with out a touchdown.
The Patriots kept it interesting by getting a touchdown pass to N’Keal Harry from 6 yards out to make it 13-10 but Mahomes and company had another answer, this time a 9 play 75 yard drive that resulted in another 6 yard shovel pass touchdown to Hardman to make it 19-10.
The Chiefs defense, who forced four turnovers, three via interception, ended all hope for the Patriots when Julian Edelman dropped a pass that was caught by Mathieu and he took it to the house for six, and a 26-10 win for the Chiefs.
The Chiefs moved to 4-0 for the fourth consecutive season. That is the first time and NFL team has done that feat.
