Fisher’s TD served as the game-clinching score as the Chiefs beat the Ravens, 34-20, at the M&T Bank Stadium.
With the Chiefs only up by seven points in the final quarter, Mahomes tossed a sidearm pass to Sammy Watkins for a first-and-goal at the two-yard line. The reigning Super Bowl MVP then made the TD pass to Fisher with 8:14 left in the game.
Fisher, who was selected first overall by the Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft out of little-known Central Michigan, is coming off an injury-riddled campaign last year. He was limited to eight games due to a groin injury. He, however, suited up in Super Bowl LIV, where he helped the Chiefs win the title for the first time in 50 years.
At 29 years old, he is the longest tenured player in the squad, along with Anthony Kelce and Anthony Sherman.
With tonight’s impressive win, the Chiefs remain spotless in three games, while also ending the Ravens’ 14-game win streak in the regular season. Mahomes and company also extended their own winning streak to 12 outings, including the postseason.
The Chiefs will gun for a fourth consecutive win against the rejuvenated Cam Newton and the New England Patriots at home in Week 4.
