The Chiefs finished Sunday’s game over the Jaguars -3 in the turnover margin.
But Kansas City still won by 10.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 331 yards and four touchdowns as the Chiefs powered their way to a 27-17 victory over Jacksonville.
The Jaguars got off to a good start by recovering a surprise onside kick and forcing a fumble on the Chiefs’ opening possession.
But Jacksonville got no points out of either chance. Then the team got down 20-0 with Kadarius Toney’s 6-yard touchdown, Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s 18-yard touchdown, and Noah Gray’s 13-yard touchdown.
While the Jaguars scored 10 straight to make the score 20-10 midway through the third quarter, the Chiefs got a 7-yard touchdown out of tight end Travis Kelce to effectively put the game out of reach.
Mahomes threw a pick in the fourth quarter to stall a drive, and the Jaguars scored a touchdown out of it. But Kansas City ran an effective four-minute drive to run out the last 5:26 of the clock. Valdes-Scantling caught a big 36-yard pass on third-and-7 to keep the team in control of the ball.
Toney had a strong game, his second for the Chiefs. Aside from his touchdown, he took a jet sweep 32 yards. He finished with four catches for 57 yards.
Kelce led with six catches for 81 yards with a TD.
Running back Isaiah Pacheco had 82 yards on 16 carries. Mahomes also had 39 rushing yards.
Defensive lineman Chris Jones had 1.5 sacks with another tackle for loss.
