Even for the team with significant firepower, what the Kansas City Chiefs did on Sunday in their 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was extraordinary.
Tyreek Hill provided one of the best games in the history of the tournament for the wide buyer. He was the fifth player to catch at least 260 yards and three touchdown passes, most recently in Jacksonville by Jimmy Smith in 2000.
Hill had 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter. He finished 269 yards, 67 of the NFL single-player record.
The quarterback Patrick Mahomes played the fifth 400-yard game of his career, which was the same as all the other Chiefs defenders in history. Mahomes, who finished with 462 yards, had 359 in the first half, the most opening halves in any NFL game in the last 20 years.
Mahomes, probably in his most recent career against Tom Brady, broke his record against the Tampa Bay quarterback. Brady won two of the three meetings between the two when he played for the New England Patriots.
