PAT’S THOUGHTS:

KC was very impressive in their win vs San Diego.  However, there were some troubling points.  First, they did give up almost 550 yards.  Second, SD WRs dropped three or four sure TD passes.  The offense was awesome though, and you have to love Mahommes first start.  However, now they go to Pittsburgh and play a team that is fortunate to escape with a tie vs Cleveland.  They had 6 turnovers, which obviously was the reason the game ended they way it did.  Slight lean to the home team here, but will not make a play.
