Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs begins to throw a pass that would lead to the games first touchdown during the first quarter against the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium on November 11, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri.
After those failed drives in the fourth, the Chiefs were able to punch one more score into the end zone to put the game essentially out of reach for the Cardinals.
Johnson totaled 183 yards, rushing for 98 yards on 22 carries and had seven catches for 85 yards. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes went 23-of-32 for 375 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the win. Nelson, who has played with Fitzgerald since 2015, said he doesn't need to wait to appreciate what Fitzgerald has accomplished. "The celebration, it just come into my head and I did it". It wasn't pretty (Sunday) but we got it done.
Personally, I didn't think twice. "I thought (offensive coordinator) Byron (Leftwich) did a tremendous job of really calling the game, getting into a flow and rhythm of the game". You won't see many wins in the National Football League with numbers like that.
"I was still on four phases of special teams", Niemann said, "so I got a little exhausted out there".
The Cardinals opened up the second half with the ball and took 7 minutes, 12 seconds off the clock with a 12-play, 65-yard scoring drive capped by David Johnson's 1-yard touchdown run. "What I mean by that is, you're trying to go and get a stop - and we talked about trying to steal possessions - which didn't happen in hindsight, but the opportunity to score right before halftime".More news: Dez Bryant tweets heartfelt reaction to his injury

"We probably had too many from an offensive standpoint", Reid said. We came into this game talking about trying to steal some possessions and trying to keep those guys off the field. No matter where the Cardinals call home the Chiefs seem to have success against them.
"We take a lot of pride", said linebacker Justin Houston, who returned against the Cardinals after missing the previous four games because of a sore hamstring.
Arizona answered with a time-consuming 75-yard touchdown drive of its own.
Mahomes (21 of 28, 249 yards, 2 TD) was held to less than 300 yards, snapping his streak of eight games with at least 300 passing yards. It's your ticket to everything sports in Kansas City. and beyond, and helps us produce sports coverage like this.
