When Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes launched a 75-yard touchdown to Tyreek Hill, he tied Sunday night’s game against the Patriots 40-40.
He left a little over three minutes on the board for Tom Brady. You’ve seen this movie before.
Skip ahead to 14:42.
He set up 28-yard Stephen Gostkowski field goal to top the previously unbeaten Chiefs 43-40 in Foxboro.
Mahomes and he battled all night in a classic duel between a Sundance kid and the ol’ gunslinger. Their stat lines:
- Brady: 24-of-35 for 340 yards and a touchdown
- Mahomes: 23-of-36 for 352 yards, four touchdowns and two picks
After building a 24-9 lead, the Chiefs stormed back to take a 33-30 lead in the fourth quarter. Brady seized the lead back in a very uncharacteristic way: his legs.

The 41-year old is inching towards 70,000 yards passing in his career. He currently stands at 67,758, meaning he has to average about 250 yards a game over the next 10 games to do it in 2018. He would join Drew Brees, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in the exclusive club.
While Brady is dealing in New England, Seattle defensive end Frank Clark was harassing Derek Carr in London.
The former Wolverine compiled four tackles and 2.5 sacks, including this forced fumble in the third quarter of a 27-3 victory over the Raiders.

The Sunday sack parade gives him 5.5 sacks on the season, which is tied for fourth in the league.
Speaking of sack parades, Baltimore Ravens end Chris Wormley chipped in one in an 11-sack performance against the Titans in a 21-0 blanking in Nashville.
Final sack totals: Za'Darius Smith 3, Patrick Onwuasor 2, one each for Matt Judon, Kenny Young, Terrell Suggs, Tony Jefferson, Chris Wormley, Anthony Levine. Adds up to 11, #Ravens franchise record and one shy of #NFL mark— Bo Smolka (@bsmolka) October 14, 2018
Wormley’s lone tackle was a takedown of Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota on the first drive.
The Ravens have officially changed their Twitter handle to account for the 11 sacks.

Meanwhile, Carolina’s Devin Funchess continues his recent uptick for the Panthers, snagging five balls for 74 yards and a score in 23-17 defeat to the Washington Redskins.
He leads the team with 23 catches for 312 yards and two scores. He’s hauled in at least seven receptions in four straight games.
- Jabrill Peppers was a Swiss Army knife for Cleveland in a 38-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
He put the Browns in early scoring position with a 33-yard punt return.
Skip to 2:38.
He totaled 51 yards on four punt returns, 71 yards on three kick returns and four tackles on defense.
- Jourdan Lewis, long-considered a trade rumor for the Dallas Cowboys, shined on the field in a 40-7 drubbing of Jacksonville.
He recovered a fumble to go with his two tackles.
Jourdan Lewis on fumble recovery: Just trying to hustle to the ball. We knew what they were running that play & Jaylon made a heck of a play, just recognizing his keys. I saw he checked it down and try to rally to help Jaylon tackle.— Kate Hairopoulos (@khairopoulos) October 15, 2018
That’s his second recovery in two games.
Teammate Taco Charlton tallied a tackle for loss, while former Michigan safety Jarrod Wilson made a single tackle for the Jaguars.
- Oakland’s Maurice Hurst added another tackle to reach 10 on the year. He also deflected a pass against the Seahawks. Teammate Leon Hall totaled five tackles from his nickel back spot.
- Philadelphia Eagles end Brandon Graham recorded two tackles in a 34-13 Thursday night triumph over the rival New York Giants on Thursday night.
- Two former Wolverines spotlighted for the Minnesota Vikings. Linebacker Ben Gedeon found the field for a lone tackle, and punter Matt Wile booted the ball five times for 225 yards (45 per kick). Two of those landed inside the 20-yard line.
- Los Angeles Rams defensive back Blake Countess returned a lone kick for 31 yards in a 23-20 late Sunday victory over the Denver Broncos in the snow.
For those wondering what the Wolverine-turned-Auburn transfer considers himself, he made it very clear.
I’m a wolverine too!! https://t.co/xoBWIdyRkJ— Blake Countess (@TheeCount2) September 19, 2018
- For injured, inactive and practice squad Michigan alumni, the status is unchanged after last week.
- Same with the linemen.
