Chiefs improve to 4-1 with victory at Minnesota

In a close match, Patrick Mahomes guided the Kansas City Chiefs to a 27-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Mahomes threw two crucial touchdowns, leading the Chiefs to their fifth win of the season.

Despite facing a resilient Vikings defense, Mahomes remained composed, completing 31 of 41 passes for 281 yards. The Chiefs’ defense also played a significant role, with cornerback L’Jarius Sneed leading the effort and Chris Jones securing three hits on Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins.

The Vikings, plagued by turnovers and missed opportunities, fell short in the final minutes of the game. A late hamstring injury to star wide receiver Justin Jefferson and mismanagement of timeouts further hampered their chances of a comeback.

With this win, Mahomes achieved a milestone, having defeated every opponent in the league during his six years as Kansas City’s starter. The Chiefs will host Denver next Thursday night, while the Vikings are set to face Chicago next Sunday.
