Mahomes the magnificent gets this one against the G.O.A.T. Having scored a season-low 17 points in a loss seven days prior, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs were at their offensive best with all the world watching. Thanks to a fumble recovery on the game's first play, Mahomes hooked up with Travis Kelce on the second play from scrimmage for six points.

But I'm not going to sit here and act like ..."

Steelers' Minkah Fitzpatrick: 'It's frustrating losing to people that you know that you're better than'
"It's very frustrating," Fitzpatrick said via NJ Advance Media. "It's frustrating losing to people that you know that you're better than, more talented than. Especially when you have the team that we have. We're a great team with a lot of talent. A lot of great young players. I think we are way better than what we've been putting on display."
