As reigning Super Bowl champions, they opened their season on September 10 at home against Houston Texans which they won 34–20; this game was delays due to a nearby thunderstorm that caused a power outage at Arrowhead Stadium that lasted for about 30 minutes late in the fourth quarter which is believed have shortened Mahomes’ touchdown pass to wide receiver Tyreek Hill late in regulation by about 10 yards.[1] They went on to win their next 11 games before losing to Las Vegas Raiders on December 20th 38–31 which handed them their first loss of the season.[2][3] They clinched another AFC West title on December 27th with a 33–27 victory against Atlanta Falcons despite resting several starters such as Mahomes and having several other starters such as running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire leave early with injuries.[4] They were upset 22-17 by eventual NFC champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV on February 7th, played at Raymond James Stadium; this marked both mahomes’ first ever loss at Arrowhead Stadium during his time with Kansas City as well as their first loss following an 11 game winning streak.[5][6][7]
