Chiefs look like Super Bowl contenders in dominant win over Bucs

You could see Patrick Mahomes’ body language from the jump, the Chiefs really wanted this game. They went to Tampa and defeated the Bucs 41-31 on Sunday Night Football in a game they led by double digits since the first quarter.

It was a Super Bowl 55 rematch as the Bucs dominated Kansas City 31-9.

The Bucs had a slew of injured players returning to the lineup as Chris Godwin, OL Donovan Smith and Julio Jones returned to the lineup, as well as star WR Mike Evans, who was suspended last week.

That was enough for Tampa to get their struggling offense going, but it was the Chiefs who gasped from the start of the game and never looked back.

The Chiefs scored touchdowns on four of the first five possessions and only poked late in the fourth quarter in a 41-31 win over the Buccaneers Sunday night. They also had a few brief TD drives, starting on Tampa’s 21 after Rachaad White botched the opening kickoff and on Tampa’s 20 after Brady was exposed in the second quarter.

“We didn’t play well. They did a good job kicking our butts all over the field. Sales had nothing to do with it,” said Bucs coach Todd Bowles.

Mahomes threw for 249 yards and three touchdowns, including an electric jump pass to Clyde Edwards-Helaire, to lead the Chiefs to a 41-31 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday night.

Mahomes played to a packed Raymond James Stadium just four days after Hurricane Ian devastated parts of Florida. Mahomes had TD throws of 16 yards on Travis Kelce, 1 yard on Edwards-Helaire, and 10 yards on Jody Fortson while making NFL history by passing 20,000 yards faster than anyone else.

“When I got to the stadium I realized I wasn’t there and the bad taste I had last time kicked in,” Mahomes said. “But it’s still not a playoff game. It’s a regular season game, which is important. This Super Bowl will always leave me with a bad taste.”

Kansas City is now 3-1 this year and they will play the Raiders at home in Monday Night Football next week. The Bucs are 2-2 and next week meet the Falcons, who are on a two-game winning streak.

Steelers give rookie Kenny Pickett the ball, Jets fall 10-6

The Kenny Pickett era began in Pittsburgh, but it wasn’t as smooth a start as Steelers fans had hoped.

With the Steelers trailing 10-6 at halftime, coach Mike Tomlin pulled off Mitch Trubisky to give his team a boost. And Pickett helped the Steelers take a 10-point lead, 20-10, early in the fourth quarter.

The Jets were able to come back with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including one with 18 seconds remaining to defeat the Steelers 24-20 on Jets QB Zach Wilson’s season debut.

Pickett became the first quarterback in NFL history to run for two touchdowns on his debut, but his first game wasn’t without its rocky moments. He finished 10 of 13 for 120 yards and three interceptions. The final interception was a Hail Mary into the end zone on the final play of the game, which was intercepted by Lamarcus Joyner, sealing victory for the Jets.

“I’m just disappointed,” Pickett said. “I wanted to come in and win. It’s really the emotions. I’m just disappointed that we didn’t get the result we worked so hard for.”

Pickett, who was selected 20th overall by the Steelers to replace retired Ben Roethlisberger, received massive applause from the crowd at Acrisure Stadium as chants of “Kenny, Kenny” echoed through the stadium. Pickett played at the same stadium when he played for the University of Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh has now fallen three times in a row and will face a tough test next Sunday in Buffalo.

The Eagles are the only team 4-0 after a robust comeback against the Jaguars

For a minute it looked like we’d leave Week 4 with zero unbeaten teams after the Doug Pederson-led Jacksonville Jaguars came to Philadelphia hungry and quickly took a 14-0 lead.

But that wouldn’t last. After a quick start, things fell apart for Trevor Lawrence, who threw an interception and lost a whopping four fumbles the rest of the way, allowing the Eagles to have 29 unanswered points to clinch a 29-21 win.

Miles Sanders rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns, Jalen Hurts threw 204 yards and ran for a goal, and the Eagles spoiled former coach Doug Pederson’s return to Philadelphia with a 29-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Sanders led an Eagles offense (4-0) that ran for 210 yards against one of the league’s tightest defenses.

“I’m pretty damn excited,” Sanders said. “The best thing about 4-0 is the chance of 5-0.”

Pederson, who coached the Eagles to a Super Bowl 52 win over New England, received a standing ovation from fans braving a rainy, windy Sunday as he was introduced before the game. The camera cuts to a shot of the big screens of the 2017 World Champions banner hanging over the upper deck of Lincoln Financial Field. Pederson mingled with some of his former players on the pitch before the game and was warmly greeted by stadium employees as he entered the stadium.

“It was a great crowd, great reception,” Pederson said.

Philadelphia will try to keep their unbeaten season going in Arizona next week.
