Watch Tyreek Hill’s stunning first-quarter highlights as he had seven receptions for 203 yards and two touchdowns.

Tyreek Hill had 269 receiving yards and three touchdowns – topping 200 scoring two TDs the first quarter alone – as the Kansas City Chiefs got off to a flier in a 27-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes passed for 462 yards, as well as tossing those three touchdowns to Hill, as he got the better of Tom Brady in a battle between the defending Super Bowl champion and MVP and the six-time winner.

  • Chiefs stats: Patrick Mahomes, 37/49, 462 yards, 3 TDs
  • Rushing leader: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, 11 carries, 37 yards
  • Receiving leader: Tyreek Hill, 13 catches, 269 yards, 3 TDs

Mahomes and Hill got Kansas City off to a stunning start, connecting on scores of 75 and 44 yards in the first quarter. Hill’s yardage was the most in the first period of a game since 2006 when Lee Evans generated 205 yards for the Buffalo Bills.

The Chiefs looked like they were about to add to their 17-0 lead early in the second quarter after driving down to the Tampa Bay eight-yard line, only to commit their first redzone turnover in 17 games – a fumble by Mahomes.

Brady’s back-to-back pics – to Bashaud Breeland and Tyrann Mathieu – looked to have all but ended the contest, but an increasingly conservative approach from Kansas City on offence kept Tampa Bay alive.

Brady bounced back from the interceptions with a bold fourth-down score to Mike Evans with 12:44 left on the clock. He then found his receiver again for a seven yards score that pulled the Bucs to within three of the Chiefs with just over four minutes remaining.

But, fittingly, on the subsequent series, it was Hill who snagged a game-clinching eight-yard pass on the boundary for a first down that enabled Kansas City to run out the rest of the clock.

The Chiefs (10-1) have now won six-straight games as they continue to track the front-running Pittsburgh Steelers (10-0) for the top seed in the AFC playoffs. The Bucs (7-5), meanwhile, have dropped a third in four to see them precariously hanging on to a Wild Card berth in the NFC.
