Chiefs’ Mahomes named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

The game was lost when: You can say it was over when the Chiefs raced out to a 21-0 lead just 13 minutes into the game.

Ben Roethlisberger rallied Pittsburgh to 21 unanswered points, allowing the Steelers to draw even 21-21 at halftime. He is 24-of-35 for 278 yards and three touchdowns already.

Against the Steelers, Mahomes completed 23-of-28 passes for 326 yards and six scores.
