Kareem Hunt also had himself a big day, scoring three touchdowns, including two of Mahomes' scoring passes, as well as a two-yard run in the third quarter. Hunt ran for 86 yards on the day and added 55 yards through the air for the Chiefs, who held a 17-point lead by halftime. Mahomes completed 28 of his 39 passes, while only making one mistake with an interception.
The young phenom connected with eight different targets on the night, including Tyreek Hill recording seven catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. He should've had a few more, but the wideout had two rare drops, including a wide open shot in the end zone. Travis Kelce chipped in five receptions for 95 yards, while Demetrius Harris had a touchdown catch for Kansas City, who compiled 551 yards of total offense. And for once, their defense got things done, starting with their first three-and-out forced punt in 17 possessions to begin the game.
The Chiefs' defense held Andy Dalton to just 148 yards passing, while Joe Mixon had just 50 yards on the ground. Dalton's one touchdown pass found C.J. Uzomah, as he also had an interception in the Bengals' third loss. They dropped in to a three-way tie with the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers for the top spot in the AFC North.
Cincinnati will return home next week to host the 3-3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Chiefs will play host to the Denver Broncos.
