The torch stays in New England for now. The Pats became the first team all season to hold the Chiefs without a touchdown in the first half.
The Patriots' Hall of Fame-bound quarterback spent the first half scoring touchdowns while the Chiefs settled for field goals.
As the Chiefs marched down the field in the final minute of the first half, Hightower chased down Mahomes and forced him to get rid of the ball on the run.
The Patriots now have at least one interception in each of their first six games of the season. But he matched his pick total in the first half against the Patriots.
Storm Callum may signal start of weekend wash-out
ESB's Senior Press Officer Paul Hand said thousands of homes and businesses are without power due to damage to power lines. In Galway city, coastal routes along the harbour are closed as a precaution ahead of high tide at around 7.45am.
New England led 24-9 at intermission, but Patrick Mahomes directed an impressive rally for Kansas City. On a third-and-2 at the 33-yard line, Mahomes rolled right, extended the play, and allowed running back Kareem Hunt to turn his route upfield.
Just when you thought the hype around Mahomes might be overrated, he offered a reminder what all the fuss was about. But the home thrashing of the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend did not come without some disappointment, as injuries to key players on both sides of the ball should have Kansas City fans anxious this week. He also rushed for a touchdown, and lost a fumble.
With the Chiefs gaining the momentum the Patriots had to answer.
Julian Edelman, on the other hand, mustered 57 receiving yards on seven receptions.
In those 630 days, including the playoffs, Brady threw 54 touchdown passes to 11 different players.
It's been a fun season so far for KC Chiefs fans, as they've seen their team score the second-most points in the league, and despite a shaky defense, have left every game unscathed.
