The Chiefs' dynamic quarterback had thrown just two interceptions over the first five games compared to 14 touchdowns.
The Chiefs extended their streak for scoring on their first possession in every game this season. They did sort of, using 11 plays to position Gostkowski for a 39-yard field goal to put the home team up 30-26.

Edelman recently rejoined the Patriots after serving a four-game suspension, and with Gordon quickly rounding himself into form, the AFC juggernaut may be as unsafe as ever heading into the fall.
Chiefs: C Mitch Morse was evaluated for concussion in the second quarter and did not return.
The Patriots go on the road for the third time this season when they visit the Bears.
