Harrison Butker made himself the leading candidate for AFC special teams player of the week with two field goals in the final 2:30, giving the Chiefs a come-from-behind 26-23 victory over the Vikings.
It was an all-around team effort without the reigning NFL MVP.
Matt Moore went 25-of-35 for 275 yards and a touchdown in Mahomes’ stead.
After the Chiefs ties the game, the Vikings got the ball back on their own 25 with 2:30 left. They lost 7 yards on three plays, forcing them to punt.
Britton Colquitt‘s punt went only 27 yards to the Minnesota 45, leaving the Chiefs with good field position and 1:47 on the clock.
Williams recovered a fumble by Moore on the first play from scrimmage on a strip-sack by
Stephen Weatherly. But Moore hit Travis Kelce for 17 yards and Hill for 13 yards to set up Butker for his last-second heroics.
The Chiefs now are 6-3, having lost last week without Mahomes. The Vikings entered with a four-game winning streak and now also are 6-3.
Kirk Cousins went 19-for-38 for 220 yards and three touchdowns.
