KANSAS CITY, Mo. - After completing 23 of 26 passes for 326-yards and six touchdowns in Pittsburgh, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes earns his second consecutive AFC offensive player of the week.

Mahomes so far has 866 yards passing and 10 touchdowns on the year. The 10 touchdowns through two games is an NFL record previously set by Drew Brees (2009) and Peyton Manning (2013) with 9. His six touchdowns in a single-game ties Len Dawson (1964) for most touchdown passes in a single game in Chiefs history.

The last Chief to win back-to-back AFC offensive player of the week awards was running back Larry Johnson (2005). The last player to go back-to-back in the first two weeks of the season, Tom Brady (2011).

More rain fell across the area Saturday night and the threat for rain will continue throughout the day on Sunday but the good news is that most will stay dry. Throughout the day, expect more clouds than sun but we could see a little more sunshine during the afternoon. An advancing cold front could bring a stray shower during the afternoon. Highs today are going to be in the 80s.
