Just another of what's becoming a routine half tonight for Patrick Mahomes against the Bengals. He's 19-of-25 for 234 yards and three TDs as the Chiefs lead 24-7 at halftime. The Chiefs scored on four of their five possessions, the failure coming when Harrison Butker missed a field goal attempt for the first time this season. Mahomes and the Chiefs will have the chance to inflict more damage to start the second half. They'll receive the kickoff.

Bengals trail the Chiefs 24-7 after one half, and it feels like even more. The Bengals look confuse on defense and can't match the Chiefs' speed. Being down two defensive starters doesn't help. The Bengals have missed tackles all night and their defense looked mostly inept for the half, while the offense couldn't keep pace with Kansas City. The Bengals would have to find some turnover magic from the beginning of the season to be able to keep up and turn this thing around.

The Bucs' 26-23 win Sunday may have come against the Cleveland Browns and not an offensive juggernaut like the Atlanta Falcons, but some of the changes made under new defensive coordinator Mark Duffner indicate that things could be headed in the right direction.

Programming note: Chiefs score 10 points in the final few minutes of the 1st half..and get the ball to start the 2nd

That's three TD passes tonight for Patrick Mahomes, none to receivers named Hill, Kelce or Watkins. The Chiefs have that much going for them offensively.

Dak Prescott said he was checked for a concussion in the first half after taking a big hit along the sideline on a 5-yard scramble. “I've been hit many times and it was a good solid hit, but I was fine,” Prescott said. “Obviously I got checked for all that. We have the best doctors. They called down for me to get checked again. I was fine.” Prescott said his left hand was dinged on the play but did not affect him in the game.

The Chiefs were in all sorts of disarray on Cincinnati's touchdown drive. They committed three penalties, including two for having 12 players on the field. They also had trouble staying with A.J. Green, who is already over 100 yards midway through the second quarter.

Only stranger ending to a Cowboys-Redskins' game I've seen than today's 20-17 Dallas loss came in 2006 when Mike Vanderjagt's potential game-winning 35-yard try was blocked, picked up by Sean Taylor and returned 30 yards. A 15-yard facemask penalty moved the ball to the Dallas 29 and Nick Novak made a 47-yarder on an untimed play for a 22-19 Washington win.

Seven games into the season, Patrick Mahomes has 20 TD passes. That's 10 away from the 54-year-old team record and six shy of the 26 that Alex Smith threw last season.
