Chiefs Lead Cardinals, 20-7, at Halftime

The Chiefs are leading the Cardinals at Arrowhead this afternoon

The Kansas City Chiefs are leading the Arizona Cardinals, 20-7, at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 14-of-19 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns in the half, finding wide receiver Tyreek Hill for a 37-yard scoring strike just 56 seconds into the game to put Kansas City out in front.

Hill was back in the end zone yet again late in the second quarter, hauling in a 14-yard score to extend the Chiefs' advantage.

The third-year receiver tallied five catches for a team-leading 97 yards in addition to a 20-yard rush in the half, amassing 117 total yards of offense through the first two quarters of play.

The two touchdowns pushed Mahomes' total to 31 on the season – the most in a single-season in franchise history, surpassing the mark set by Len Dawson in 1964.

Tailback Kareem Hunt also put together a productive half for the Chiefs, racking up 56 total yards on seven touches. Hunt now has 1,051 offensive yards on the year, becoming just the second player in franchise history to reach that mark in each of their first two seasons as a professional.

On the other side of the ball, the Chiefs held Arizona to just 100 yards of total offense in the half. Defensive end Chris Jones was right in the middle of that action, tallying a sack for a sixth-consecutive contest.

Jones' streak is tied with Neil Smith for the second-longest in franchise history, trailing only teammate Justin Houston (8 in 2014-15).
