Chiefs roar back, to take halftime lead on Texans

The Chiefs and Texans contain multitudes.

After a ridiculous and amazing first half of football, the Chiefs have taken a 28-24 lead.

The Texans opened the game by scoring the first 24 points, but then came a hail of special teams miscues of their own and the Chiefs came back to reclaim the lead less than a quarter later.

Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes in the second quarter, three of them to tight end Travis Kelce, who overcame an early drop to play an incredible half.

The Texans drove into position for a late field goal, but it missed wide, because 55 points would have been too many in a half.

And that’s the amazing part, there’s another half of this to come. Who knows what could be next?

  1. Mahomes is amazing!!! His receivers are dropping balls left and right, and despite being down 24-0 he talking them up.

  2. Wow, tale of 2 Quarters indeed!

    This game has been like Oilers @ Bills in a SINGLE HALF!

    Crazy!!!

  3. I know it’s a common sentiment, but if the Texans do not fire Bill O’Brien they are going to perpetually be stuck in the middle. His coaching is horrible, he doesn’t have any evidence of knowing how to be a GM. However, since they have DeShaun Watson he is going to cover up a lot of their shortcomings. So they’ll more than likely get to the playoffs every year but they won’t ever win it all. Anyone that watches Texans games sees his cluelessness. Chain of DeShaun Watson’s career is wasted playing for Obrien

  4. No thanks to Bill O’Brien. That guy is an enigma. Won’t go for it on 4th/inches near the red zone – fakes a punt in his own territory.

  5. When the Texans lose this football game, and they will because O’Brien can’t get out of his own way and Watson simply isn’t enough to carry the Texans, O’Brien will have himself to blame for blowing a 24 point lead and costing Houston a chance to host the AFCCG.

  6. And Hopkins out. Very shortly about to be 42-24 and a humiliating footnote in Texas football history. That botched 4th down attempt on what should have been a punt and the ensuing fumble on a the kickoff that should have not happened, which led to 14 points, is all attributable to really bad coaching and one very terrible call. When they lose, jobs should be lost as well. Wow! Just wow! How do you cough up a 24-0 lead like that?

    As long as Watson keeps celebrating every time the Texans advance 10 yards the Texans should be good.

    —————————————–

    That’s because Watson thinks he’s the hero everyone needs.

  8. When Patrick was down in the first half, he did not sit on the bench like the fake QB, Lame, did in the Baltimore game. Lame pouted and sneared and made faces and looked empty-headed while his team was having its lunch handed to him. Patrick is a leader. Lame is a fraud. Patrick is a mobile QB who can run. Lame is a running back who can thrown 50 times.

  9. “The Colts are the only AFC South team that can win in Arrowhead.”

    Hmm yeah, if hanging your hat on a reg season game makes you feel better or something. Maybe focus on making the Playoffs next year

  10. And all the clueless fanboys blame O’Brien for Watsons monumental choke job. 41 points unanswered. 24-0 choke job by Watson. He can’t do anything. Is a bum. Overrated.

    Whatever… not sure why you think Patriots fans really care all that much if their prior coaches are that successful.
