Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes totals 462 passing yards and 3 touchdowns in Week 12 victory over Buccaneers
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 37 of 49 attempts for 462 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 27-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.
Mahomes was Mahomes in Week 12, easily moving the Chiefs down the field against Tampa Bay and helping them jump out to a 17-point lead after the first quarter. The story of the day was Mahomes' connection with Tyreek Hill, with the dynamic duo connecting on 13 of 15 targets for an astounding 269 yards and 3 touchdowns, including scores from 75, 44, and 20 yards. Despite leading for almost the entire game, the Chiefs continued to lean on their passing game, with 46 passing attempts to just 16 handoffs. At this point, the spectacular is expected from Mahomes, but the first quarter he put together with Tyreek Hill was special even for him. Next up for Mahomes and Kansas City is a clash with the Denver Broncos in Week 13.
Mahomes scored 31.28 FanDuel points in Week 12, the most of any quarterback on Sunday's main slate, and 8.18 more than numberFire's projection (23.1). Our models project Mahomes for 23.61 points in Week 13.
