Video: Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes extends Kansas City lead vs. Colts with touchdown run
It’s been a while since Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs last took the field, thanks to a bye in the wild-card round of the NFL Playoffs, but they don’t seem to be showing any signs of rust in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup with the Indianapolis Colts despite an extended rest.
Mahomes, for one, has been on top of things for the Chiefs, who ended the first half of the contest leading, 24-7. It’s actually Kansas City’s ground attack that dealt the most damage to the Colts in the first two quarters of this weekend meeting at Arrowhead Stadium, as the team’s backfield produced three rushing touchdowns over that span, including this one from Mahomes, who took the ball to the house on a short four-yard rushing score.

Mahomes is considered by many as the frontrunner for this season’s MVP award. He finished the 2018 NFL regular season with 5,097 passing yards, 50 passing touchdowns, and only 12 interceptions. He also added 272 rushing yards and two rushing scores to his mind-blowing second-year season in the pros.
With Mahomes running the show in Kansas City, the Chiefs managed to become this season’s most prolific team on offense, pacing the entire league with an average of 35.3 points per game.
