Chiefs remain undefeated in close game over Lions
DETROIT - In a fumble filled affair, the Chiefs took advantage and pulled away with a game-winning drive to defeat the Lions 34-30 on Sunday.
The Lions got out to a quick 10-0 lead after a quiet first quarter from Kansas City, but the offense started to pick it up from there.
The Chiefs put up 13 points from LeSean McCoy and Harrison Butker to tie it up going into the half. It was looking up for each team, but then the fumbles struck.
To start the second half, Mecole Hardman lost the ball to give the Lions great field position. Kansas City's defense stepped up big time getting the ball back on a Matthew Stafford fumble inside the 5-yard line.
The Chiefs then coughed the ball up again, but once again, the defense made sure they would stay in the game.
After what looked like a certain touchdown for Detroit, Bashaud Breeland picked up a loose ball on the goal-line and returned it for a 100-yard touchdown.
It started to look down from there though as The Lions would go onto score 10 straight with the help of a Kansas City fumble.
The Chiefs scored to go up, but Detroit responded with one of its own, bringing the game to 30-27.
Patrick Mahomes got the ball with just over two minutes left and marched down the field to score with 20 seconds left to win 34-30.
With the win, the Chiefs improve to (4-0), while Detroit falls to (2-1-1).
Kansas City will host the Colts on Sunday night on KOMU-TV.
