Justin Houstons return bolsters Chiefs in win over Cardinals

But in a battle of young quarterbacks who were once roommates at the Manning Passing Academy in college, this day belonged to Mahomes. The two met when Mahomes was being recruited to Texas Tech and Mayfield helped to serve as his host, and their relationship continued even when Mayfield transferred to Oklahoma. In a game that the Cardinals were expected to be outmatched, Rosen failed to deliver. "He throws a handsome ball".

It's going to be tough to top the success Mahomes is having. They sacked Rosen five times, intercepted him twice and even managed to keep David Johnson under 100 yards rushing - just barely. Mahomes has eight straight to match Andrew Luck from the 2014 season, and he's shown no signs of slowing down.

"The defense played outstanding", said Hunt. "We just had to take advantage of that today". I think we executed the game plan at times, but we still have to do better job at being more consistent. So we're trying to turn this around and we are trying to get this thing in the right direction because we have goals. They led for all but about six minutes against the Cardinals and didn't need to be concerned as much about Arizona's running game as they would have in a game in which they were tied or behind.

"There's no moral victories in this game", said Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, whose team opened the week as 17-point underdogs. "When you pressure the quarterback, mistakes happen. You're not going to let distractions get in the way". Clearly, the Chiefs want to get Sorensen up to speed sooner than later. Mahomes, who would throw two touchdowns to Tyreek Hill to topple the franchise single-season record of 30 set in 1964 by Len Dawson, only needed two completions to find the end zone. He jumped back into the stands and took control of a TV camera.

ROSEN AND REID: Rosen's father, noted physician Dr. Charles Rosen, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and the youngster was an avid fan of Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles growing up.

Notes: Reid said Monday he's not concerned about the field conditions at Azteca Stadium, where the combination of concerts and soccer matches have wrecked the turf. "Him and Mike Vick and the DeSean Jackson days were very fun to watch". "Watching my kids grow up and tell them about that I played alongside a guy like Larry, that's an honor". And his answer was quite candid. Now, there are a lot of things we can build off to get better. "I thought the guys responded after that, but we can not give up the big plays".

Fitzgerald needs eight more receptions to pass Rice (1,281 with San Francisco) for the most in National Football League history with one team.

Much like Kansas City was exhausted of hearing about the single-season home run record that was eventually broken by Mike Moustakas, the all-time single season touchdown record had stood for much longer - 54 years, to be exact. He also has 42 career touchdowns in his 42 games played.
