Kansas City loses at Mahomes comeback
Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a bitter defeat on his comeback after a three-week injury break. The Mahomes, who was voted most valuable player of the league in the preseason, lost to the Tennessee Titans with the Kansas City Chiefs despite a strong performance 32:35.
The 24-year-old dislocated his right kneecap in mid-October in the game against the Denver Broncos (30: 6). Mahomes threw for 446 yards space gain and three touchdowns and had the victory in mind, but 23 seconds before the end of the game, the Titans went through a touchdown by Adam Humphries in the lead.
Kansas City then had the chance to force overtime from 52 yards with a field goal, but Kicker's Harrison Butker's attempt was blocked. Despite the fourth defeat of the season, the Chiefs are still on play-off course.
