NFL power rankings Week 3: Titans fall back to earth after loss to Colts
2. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)
Imagine a game in which all of the scoring takes place in just two quarters, and each team only scores in one quarter apiece. That’s what happened in the game between the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
It looked like we were in the Twilight Zone during the first quarter. The Raiders were moving the ball down the field and scoring points, gaining a 10-0 lead over the Chiefs early.
Then, reality set in and the Chiefs exploded in the second quarter. Patrick Mahomes tossed four touchdown passes in the frame, and the Chiefs jumped out to a 28-10 lead with their four unanswered scores.
And then, that was it. Neither team would score for the rest of the game, and the Chiefs cruised comfortably in the second half with the Raiders unable to answer the rest of the way.
After two wins to start the season, KC will play its home opener in Week 3 against a tough Baltimore Ravens defense that has some talented young pieces on their offense in Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown.
