The Kansas City Chiefs saw a Demarcus Robinson 36-yard touchdown catch wiped out on the team’s first drive in their season-opener against the Houston Texans. Kansas City was forced to punt on the drive. It was one of the few times Thursday the Chiefs’ offense was stopped in competitive time, as the defending Super Bowl champions steamrolled the visiting and overwhelmed Texans 34-20 in front of a socially distanced crowd of 15,895 at Arrowhead Stadium.
Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire was one member of the team who didn’t receive a Super Bowl ring, but he stole the show, racking up 138 yards on 25 carries along with a touchdown (watch it here).
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, MVP of Super Bowl LIV, was sharp and efficient, not needing to take many shots down the field to 211 yards and three touchdown strikes on 24 of 32 passing.
