Chiefs open up offense against Pittsburgh, eye Buffalo next

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs had to learn to dink and dunk their way through this entire season, contrary to every instinct of go for broke quarterback Patrick Mahomes, as opposing defenses simply refused to let themselves get beaten deep.

You can bet they relished the opportunity to open up the offense against Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Mahomes wound up throwing for 404 yards and five touchdowns, most coming in the final three quarters, as the Chiefs turned an early seven-point deficit into a 42-21 rout. It was a vintage performance by the Kansas City offense, a throwback of sorts to the past few years, when Mahomes and his fleet of playmakers made defensive backfields look silly.
