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).

This evening, a few spotty storms are moving through the area. Expect these to fizzle out after sunset as temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s. Tonight, skies should stay mostly cloudy with temperatures falling into the mid 60s.
