And then the Colts came into this madhouse and both beat up and beat down the Chiefs, running them into the turf, pressuring Mahomes and.
The outcome left the New England Patriots (5-0) and San Francisco 49ers (3-0) as the only unbeaten teams in the NFL. The young Colts defense played without two starting safeties and last year's Defensive Rookie of the Year in the NFL, Darius Leonard. Turay was carted off the field after a lengthy break in the action, and was diagnosed with a fractured and dislocated ankle. They entered Kansas City as underdogs to defeat the high-powered and seemingly unstoppable Chiefs led by reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes, but that's precisely what they did in an impressive 19-13 victory that saw them shut down the might Chiefs offense.
The Colts also drove 70 yards for a first-quarter touchdown on a 1-yard keeper by Brissett after Mack got going with 40 yards rushing on that march. Steve Spagnuolo's unit got some key stops in the first half, but there's no masking the fact that the defense was on the field for over 22 minutes in the second half. The Chiefs had scored 26 or more points in 25 straight games. Taking away runs by Mahomes, the Chiefs ran six times in the first half.
Chiefs welcome the Texans to Arrowhead Stadium next Sunday.
