Upon Further Review: 10 Quick Facts Following Sunday Night's Victory Over Chicago

Here are some interesting notes about the win

The Kansas City Chiefs won their fifth-straight game on Sunday night with a dominant victory over the Chicago Bears.

Here are 10 quick facts about the win.

1. Patrick Mahomes reached a pair of career milestones faster than anybody else in NFL history

Mahomes completed 23-of-33 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday night, surpassing a couple of career milestones in the process. The 24-year-old Mahomes now has 75 touchdowns as a professional in just 30 games, becoming the fastest player in league history to reach that mark. He also has 9,238 passing yards now for his young career, reaching the 9,000-yard plateau faster than anybody else ever to take the field.

The only other player to notch both milestones prior to their 35th career game was Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino, who did so in 34 contests. Mahomes now owns the record by four games.

Additionally, Mahomes tallied his 20th regular-season outing with a passer rating north of 100.0, which are the most in the NFL since the beginning of the 2018 campaign.

2. Travis Kelce just keeps setting records

Kelce, who became the first tight end to tally four-straight 1,000-yard seasons in NFL history last week, was back at it on Sunday with two more records.

First, Kelce is the fastest tight end to 500 career catches in league history, doing so in just 95 games and edging Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow by six contests. Furthermore, Kelce is now the first tight end in the century-long history of the NFL to notch back-to-back 1,200+ yard seasons.

3. Tyreek Hill is officially the most prolific receiver through four seasons in Chiefs' history

Hill caught five passes for 72 yards on Sunday night while becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach 4,000+ receiving yards, passing Otis Taylor. The electric Hill now holds franchise-bests in receiving yards (4,054), receptions (277) and receiving touchdowns (32) through a player's first four seasons in Chiefs' history.

4. The Chiefs have been ridiculously good on third/fourth-and-long this season

Kansas City converted an improbable play early with a 19-yard strike to Hill on third-and-18, continuing an incredible trend for the Chiefs' offense in third/fourth-and-long situations.

5. Harrison Butker nailed a career-long kick

Butker booted a 56-yard field goal early in the second quarter, tallying not just a career-long, but also the fourth-longest kick in franchise history. Only Nick Lowery has connected on a longer field goal for the red and gold, with Butker's kick standing as the longest since the 1985 season.

6. The Bears don't usually give up many points

Chicago boasts one of the best defenses in the NFL, making Kansas City's victory on Sunday all the more impressive. In fact, the Chiefs' 26 points were the second-most the Bears have allowed all season and the most since Week 7.

The Chiefs' 23-point victory marked the Bears' largest margin of defeat since Week 12 of the 2017 season.

7. The Chiefs' defense was fantastic once again

Kansas City came into Sunday night's game with the top scoring defense in the NFL since Week 11, and after yielding just three points to Chicago, that points-allowed average dipped even further.

The Chiefs are yielding a league-best 9.6 points-per-game over their last five contests and have allowed just four touchdowns since Week 11, the fewest in the NFL by four scores.

8. Frank Clark, Chris Jones and Reggie Ragland all recorded sacks

The pressure got to Bears' quarterback Mitchell Trubisky three times on Sunday as Clark, Jones and Ragland all notched sacks. Jones now has a team-leading 8.0 sacks on the year while Clark is just one behind at 7.0 sacks.

The Chiefs are one of 12 teams in the league to feature multiple players with 7.0+ sacks.

9. Kansas City finishes with a 7-1 road record this season, doing so for the first time in a while

Sunday's win made it seven road victories for the Chiefs this season, and that's no small feat. Kansas City hadn't won seven road games since 1966 - when the squad went undefeated on the road - and since the league expanded the schedule to 16 games in 1978, the Chiefs had never won seven games away from Arrowhead Stadium until 2019.

Kansas City is averaging 29.6 points-per-game on the road this season while allowing just 17.9.

10. The Chiefs secured an 11th victory yet again under Andy Reid

Kansas City is now 11-4 on the season, recording at least 11 victories for the fifth time in seven seasons under Reid's leadership.
