WATCH: Chiefs Patrick Mahomes hits Jerick McKinnon for TD vs. Patriots

The Kansas City Chiefs have a halftime lead over the New England Patriots in Week 15 after a pretty pass from Patrick Mahomes to Jerick McKinnon scored a touchdown with less than a minute remaining in the second quarter.

The score was McKinnon’s second touchdown of the day after he flipped a pass to Rashee Rice earlier in the game to get Kansas City on the board in the first quarter.

While the Chiefs’ four-point lead may seem safe to casual observers, the Patriots have proven to be a worthy adversary for the defending Super Bowl champions. Kansas City is set to receive the second-half kickoff when play resumes and could start to pull away in the box score if they can put together more scoring plays in the third quarter.

Expect Mahomes and Andy Reid to get creative late in this game as they look to guide the Chiefs to their ninth win of the 2023 season.
