Patrick Mahomes leads Chiefs over Jaguars as Buffalo Bills bounce back
Patrick Mahomes threw for two touchdowns as the Kansas City Chiefs bounced back from their season-opening loss to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Mahomes and the Chiefs had been upset at home by the Detroit Lions in their opening game of the season after a litany of blunders by the receiving corps.
But with fit-again tight end Travis Kelce back in the starting line-up, Mahomes looked more like his old self as the Chiefs dug deep for a hard-earned victory.
Mahomes picked out his favorite target, Kelce, for a third-quarter touchdown after earlier connecting with Skyy Moore for the Chiefs' other touchdown.

But thereafter, it was all Buffalo, with quarterback Josh Allen taking over to pilot the Bills to a blowout victory.
Allen tossed three touchdowns with no interceptions and finished with 274 yards from 31-of-37 attempts.

But Baltimore held on to possession on the next drive to run down the clock as the Ravens improved to 2-0.
Lions lose to Seahawks in 37-31 overtime defeat
In Detroit, meanwhile, Lions quarterback Jared Goff's bid to set a new NFL record for the longest passing streak without an interception came to an abrupt end in a 37-31 overtime defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in the Motor City.
Goff had been within touching distance of Aaron Rodgers' record of 402 passes without a takeaway after moving to 383 attempts without an interception.
But the streak ended when Goff was picked off by Tre Brown in the fourth quarter for a touchdown to help Seattle into a 31-21 lead.
Goff led a spirited 10-point rally, which culminated with Riley Patterson slotting a 38-yard field goal to force overtime, but Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith found Tyler Lockett for the winning score in overtime.
