The Buccaneers won by a mammoth 9-31 scoreline. Not only that, this was the first game for the Chiefs that Patrick Mahomes failed to get a single touchdown since being named a starter in 2018. The former Texas A&M man finished the game with 26 completions out of 49 attempted passes at the Raymond James Stadium.

He threw for 270 yards with 2 interceptions. While Mahomes had an off day, the rest of the Chiefs’ offense was not too far behind. The likes of Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, Mecole Hardman, and Tyreek Hill were not far behind.
