The Kansas City Chiefs were looking to avoid a potential upset and letdown at home on Sunday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kansas City dominated Pittsburgh from start to finish in a 36-10 win.

The Chiefs have won eight consecutive games and they have also won the AFC West crown for the past six consecutive years. This is never getting old for Kansas City and its fan base. They are one of the most well-run organizations in the entire NFL.

Patrick Mahomes was slinging out there today for the Kansas City Chiefs. He completed 23-of-30 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns.

Mahomes threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Byron Pringle in the first quarter, an 8-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman Jr. in the second quarter, and a 16-yard touchdown pass to Byron Pringle once again in the third quarter for Kansas City.

Byron Pringle was the Chiefs leading receiver with six receptions for 75 yards receiving and two touchdowns.

Mecole Hardman caught three passes for 31 yards receiving and a touchdown for Kansas City.

Tyreek Hill was held in check for the Kansas City Chiefs offense with two receptions for 19 yards receiving. He was double-teamed a lot in this football game for Kansas City by the Pittsburgh Steelers defense enlarge to tight end Travis Kelce missing this football game for the Chiefs due to COVID-19 protocols.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire scored on a 1-yard rushing touchdown on Kansas City’s opening drive of the football game.

Darrel Williams was the Kansas City Chiefs leading rusher in this football game with 55 yards rushing on 11 carries. They always have different players stepping up each and every football game. This is a credit to head coach Andy Reid and his coaching staff, along with general manager Brett Veach.

Their defense is really good as of late also.

The Kansas City Chiefs (11-4) are currently the number one seed in the AFC and they will also have a huge game on the road in the AFC next Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals (9-6).

The Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7-1) will host the Cleveland Browns (7-8) in an elimination game for the AFC Wild Card Standings next Monday night.
