10 Quick Facts About Sunday's Victory Over Los Angeles | Upon Further Review Week 12

Here are some quick facts and notes about the game

The Kansas City Chiefs won their fifth game in a row on Sunday with a victory over the reigning Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams.

Here are some quick notes from the game.

1. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes set another NFL record on Sunday.

Mahomes completed 27-of-42 passes for 320 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, recording his sixth-consecutive 300-yard game through the air. It's the longest streak in the NFL this season, and the longest stretch for any player since Mahomes recorded an identical six-game streak during the 2020 campaign. Additionally, no other quarterback has six total 300-yard game this season, while Mahomes has six in a row.

That performance helped Mahomes win his 59th career game on Sunday, making him the winningest quarterback through 75 starts in NFL history. Mahomes, who made his 74th career start on Sunday, moved past Ken Stabler's previous record of 58 wins set in 1978.

2. Tight end Travis Kelce added to his league-lead in receiving touchdowns.

Kelce recorded his 12th receiving touchdown of the season on Sunday, which leads the NFL and marks a new career-high for the All-Pro tight end with six games left to play. Kelce is now only three scores shy of matching Dwayne Bowe (2010) and Tyreek Hill (2020) for the franchise record of 15.

His touchdown on Sunday – a 39-yard strike from Patrick Mahomes – was the 46th career time that the duo of Mahomes and Kelce connected for a passing touchdown, matching Len Dawson and Otis Taylor for the most by a pair of teammates in franchise history.

3. Ten different players caught a pass for the Chiefs on Sunday.

Mahomes spread the football around to 10 different targets on Sunday, those being Travis Kelce (4 catches for 57 yards), wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (4 catches for 56 yards), wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (3 catches for 38 yards), wide receiver Skyy Moore (5 catches for 36 yards), tailback Jerick McKinnon (3 catches for 26 yards), wide receiver Justin Watson (2 catches for 26 yards), tight end Jody Fortson (2 catches for 26 yards), tailback Ronald Jones (1 catch for 22 yards), tailback Isiah Pacheco (1 catch for 17 yards) and tight end Noah Gray (2 catches for 16 yards).

Jones' reception – a 22-yard catch-and-run – made him the 12th player to catch a pass of at least 20 yards for Kansas City this season. No other team has a higher tally.

4. Tailback Isiah Pacheco continued to string together strong outings.

Pacheco rushed for 69 yards on 22 carries in Sunday's game, pushing his season total to a team-leading 455 yards on the ground. In fact, since Week 10, Pacheco ranks fourth in the league in rushing with 258 yards.

The rookie tailback forced four missed tackles on Sunday, and since Week 10, his nine forced missed tackles rank 11th among all running backs.

5. Defensive lineman Chris Jones is on a tear right now.

Jones – who has eight sacks in his last six games – has tallied at least a half sack in every contest since Week 6. Jones leads the NFL in sacks during that span, and his 10 overall sacks on the season are his most since the 2018 campaign.

His 48 pressures this season are the most among all defensive tackles, and they're tied for the seventh-most among all players.

6. Defensive end George Karlaftis recorded the first full sack of his young career.

Karlaftis, who entered the game with the second-most pressures (29) among all rookies, tallied the first full sack of his career on Sunday by getting to Rams' quarterback Bryce Perkins early in the game.

He wasn't the only rookie to accomplish that feat either, as safety Bryan Cook also recorded his first-career sack later in the game.

7. Linebacker Nick Bolton had another strong game.

Bolton continued his strong season on Sunday with another 10+ tackle performance, marking his sixth game this year with double-digit total tackles. Only Donnie Edwards, who amassed seven games with 10+ tackles in 2000, has recorded more such games in a single season for Kansas City since 1994. He now has 106 tackles on the year, making him only the 10th player since 2015 to record 100+ tackles in each of his first two seasons in the NFL.

The former second-round pick is only seven tackles shy of besting the mark he set last year (112) with six games still left to play. Additionally, Bolton also recorded an interception for the second-straight week.

8. Defensive end Frank Clark has been racking up a bunch of pressures over the last two weeks.

Clark has 13 pressures over his last two games, which ranks second in the NFL behind only the Dallas Cowboys' Micah Parsons (14) since Week 11. He's the only player in the league to record six or more pressures in each of the last two weeks.

9. Head Coach Andy Reid is now the winningest coach in the history of GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Reid notched his 65th overall victory (regular season and playoffs) at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, moving past the legendary Marty Schottenheimer for the most wins by a head coach in the 50-year history of the venue.

The Chiefs' 65 home victories since 2013 (excluding Kansas City's "home game" in London in 2015) are the second-most in the NFL behind only New England (69).

10. The Chiefs secured a 10th consecutive winning season on Sunday.

Kansas City won its ninth game of the season on Sunday, guaranteeing that the Chiefs will finish the 2022 campaign with nothing short of a 10th straight winning season. Kansas City's streak of winning seasons is the longest active stretch in the NFL.

Sustained success is the hardest thing to achieve in the NFL, and Coach Reid has delivered a decade of exactly that during his time in Kansas City.
