Patrick Mahomes is unreal.
"I think, I'm glad when he was running - Tyreek was running to score - I said, 'Good, score quick.' Because then we had enough time", Brady said after the 43-40 win, via the team's transcript. It was the first of 21 straight wins, including Super Bowl XXXVII. "We just settled down and we saw [Mahomes] in the second half be more like himself and have a little fun out there".
He got a step on safety Josh Shaw, hauled in a perfectly thrown pass from Brady at the 23 and got down to the 9 before Shaw dragged him down. The quarterback took a 1-yard loss on the next snap to center the football, then ceded the floor to Gostkowski, who drilled the last of his five field goals on five attempts to cap a wild walk-off win. He did have two interceptions. One was deep in Chiefs territory on a play when Don't'a Hightower faked blitzing and then dropped into coverage, leading immediately to a Sony Michel TD. Mahomes has certainly been outstanding outside the pocket and rolling to his right.
On Sunday, the quarterback did it again - and again - to leads the Patriots to a insane 43-40 win over the Chiefs. Brady broke a tackle by Chiefs rookie Breeland Speaks, who told reporters after the game that he thought Brady already had released a pass.
"Yeah, I don't think this is an intimidating place at all", Kelce said. I've got to watch it tomorrow, but I got close to the goal line and figured I'd just try to get it in. We get the world we deserve.

Van Dijk a doubt for Huddersfield clash after suffering injury
After van Dijk's opener, the Dutch had chances to double their lead but Wijnaldum shot wide and Depay headed off target. Depay then hit the Germany crossbar moments before Wijnaldum netted Holland's third goal just before the final whistle.
Perhaps the best part about watching Mahomes is imagining how high his ceiling can go. On first down Mahomes found Hill open near the Patriots sideline. They flexed their personnel, using Hightower and Kyle Van Noy as DT/DE/LB and Patrick Chung as a S/CB/LB/EDGE. "On those ones, especially, that's where he's really good".
A Patriots defense that forced two turnovers in the first half suddenly became vulnerable to the big play after halftime. "I'm just grateful that I have a guy like that that I can turn to when I give up a play like that, knowing he's going to take care of business for us". "I felt as the game went on, I kept making the reads and throwing the ball and I started connecting on the ones later". The two sides traded field goals before Tyreek Hill hauled in a 1- yard touchdown pass pulling Kansas City within one to end the third quarter. The second of those three gave the Chiefs a three-point fourth-quarter lead, on a throw that looked like it could have been caught by either Hunt or Hill in the corner of the end zone. With the Chiefs trailing 40-33, he connected with Hill again for a 75-yard score that tied the game with just over three minutes remaining. It just ended tonight, actually.
So, Brady sprung free and was in the end zone a couple of seconds later. Time, the G.O.A.T. vs. the young gun-and Mahomes proved to be a worthy opponent.
"I don't think we've seen our best".
A few minutes later, after Mahomes had changed into his sweats and was heading out of the stadium toward the team buses, he encountered a line of people wearing Chiefs apparel and waiting near the tunnel to great him. A team security member quickly pointed the way.
In those 630 days, including the playoffs, Brady threw 54 touchdown passes to 11 different players.
