The Chiefs improved to 2-0 this season with the home opener looming next week.

Pittsburgh - Any concerns about quarterback Patrick Mahomes as the future of the Chiefs were laid to rest on Sunday afternoon. The 23 year old signal caller tossed six touchdown passes on his way to leading Kansas City to a 42-37 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

Mahomes’ brilliance through the first two games of the season cannot be understated. His six touchdown passes on Sunday tied a single game franchise record, and his 10 touchdown passes over the first two weeks of the season set a new NFL record. He threw more touchdown passes (6) on Sunday in Pittsburgh than he did incomplete passes  (5) while leading Kansas City to their first win in Pittsburgh in over 30 years. Five different receivers caught touchdown passes for the Chiefs, paced by tight end Travis Kelce, who hauled in seven balls for 109 yards and two scores.

After two encouraging road wins, the Chiefs will be back at Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday for a battle with the San Francisco 49ers (1-1).
