Patrick Mahomes turned 23 on Monday, a day after he threw six touchdown passes in the Chiefs' 42-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The way he made it sound, there wasn't much of a celebration. “I came (to the Chiefs' practice facility) and I got to watch some film,'' he said. “I didn't want to go to dinner. My girlfriend had gotten me a cake and so I just ordered (delivery). She said that's fine with her as long as that's what I wanted to do.'' Staying low-key about a birthday is in line with how Mahomes said he's handling the national attention he's receiving for throwing an NFL record 10 touchdown passes in the first two games of the season, both Kansas City wins. “I've seen it on social media but that hasn't really fazed me,'' he said. “It's still early in the season. I know there's a lot of season left. For me, it's just all about the process, the process of every day having a routine, going in there, doing what you need to do in order to have success.''

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes on whether he planned to be named the AFC offensive player of the week every game this season, as he was for the first two of the season: “I don't know about every one of them but it is truly an honor to get it one time and then get it another time. It speaks to the offense and the team that we have. I'm just going out there and doing my job and I'm putting it in those guys' hands and they're making plays.''

Pat Mahomes on Kansas City's fast offensive start: "You never expect to have 10 touchdowns at this point. But I knew with this offense (and) the weapons we had and the scheme coach Reid is drawing up that we had a chance to get really, really good. The possibilities are endless."

Mahomes sets 3-game TD passing mark with 10

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw six touchdown passes on Sunday to become the first player in NFL history to throw for 10 TDs in the first three games of his NFL career.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs may never feel like they're out of a game with Patrick Mahomes as their quarterback. They allowed 37 points but beat the Steelers 42-37 on the strength of his six touchdown passes. The Chiefs completed a difficult two-game opening stretch of schedule with a 2-0 record. They won at the Los Angeles Chargers last week.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Patrick Mahomes already has 66.6 fantasy points through two games — and these are career starts two and three for him! That's already the 2nd-most fantasy points that any quarterback since 1950 has had through Week 2 — Ryan Fitzpatrick this year is the only one with more.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Travis Kelce scored the third-fewest PPR fantasy points of his career in Week 1 (1.6), and he has already scored the second-MOST of his career today (29.9) — with more than a quarter to play. His career best: 33.0, in 2016 Week 16 vs. DEN.

Chiefs CB Steve Nelson is back in the game in the second half.

The Chiefs have reason to feel nervous after watching their early lead of 21-0 evaporate by halftime. They're tied with the Steelers 21-21 at the half after allowing Pittsburgh to go on three long touchdown drives. in the second quarter. The Kansas City defense has played a lot of snaps (41) on a hot afternoon for the second straight week and may not have much energy left for the final 30 minutes.

Chiefs CB Steven Nelson is being helped to the locker room with an apparent leg injury. KC doesn't have much depth at corner. Orlando Scandrick will join Kendall Fuller in the base defense, assuming Nelson doesn't return. Rookie Tremon Smith, a sixth-round draft pick, is Kansas City's only other corner in uniform.

Tyreek Hill still hasn't touched the ball on offense yet for the Chiefs and they're late in the first half. It didn't matter early, when the Chiefs scored a TD on each of their first two possessions. They've punted twice since and saw their lead shrink to 21-13.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The offense so far is working more like the Chiefs intend than last week, when Tyreek Hill was the big receiving bbstar. This time the ball is moving around. Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins and Chris Conley all have big catches and the Chiefs are up 14-0 in the first quarter.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Another great start for the Chiefs, who took the lead for good two minutes into last week's game. They're ahead of the Steelers 7-0 today one minute in. The common threads are a three-and-out by the defense and a long punt return, this one by De'Anthony Thomas. Chiefs were consistently strong in the kicking game last week as well.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Looks like Chiefs will go with the same starting offensive line as last week. From left to right FIsher, Erving, Morse, Duvernay-Tardif, Schwartz.
