KC's Jaylen Watson takes off for 99-yard pick-6 (0:37)

Jaylen returned it to the house for a 99 yard touchdown as the Chiefs took the lead in the fourth. There is a time and a place for this.

11:25 PM ET

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 27-24 on Thursday night as Patrick Mahomes completed 24 of 35 passes for 235 yards and two touchdown.

Kansas City Chiefs

When the Chiefs took Jaylen in the seventh round this year, he was almost forgotten. He is a key player for the Chiefs.

Playing because starter Trent McDuffie went on injured reserve this week, he delivered the biggest play of the season. In the fourth quarter, he returned a pass from Herbert 99 yards for a touchdown to give the Bolts the lead. In the end, the Chiefs beat their rivals.

The win probability for the team that snapped the ball from the 3 was 73%. After the pick-six, the probability went to 81%.

The only team without a loss in the division is the Chiefs.

Buy or sell on a big performance by wide receiver Justin Watson, who caught a 41-yard touchdown pass and one other ball as he passed Skyy Moore on the depth chart. It's not a surprise that he played well with Patrick Mahomes during training camp. He was most effective in the red zone, where he used his size to his advantage. As long as he's the fourth wide receiver, he should get a lot of time on the field.

The short-yardage offense was struggling. They were 0-of-5 on third-and-2. The coach called for a field goal on fourth-and-goal from the 1 in the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs were trailing by 17 points.

The eight different players who had at least two catches were tied for the most in a game in the Patrick Mahomes era. In the past, Kansas City has done that. In the third week of last season, the first came against the Chargers.

The next game is at the Indianapolis Colts. There was an event on September 25th.

There's still work to be done to take the AFC West from the six-time defending champion Chiefs despite the additions of stars this off-season. The Chiefs came back from a 10 point deficit to defeat the Chargers.

The Bolts were going to be tested early in the season, playing back-to-back games against the Raiders and Chiefs in a five-day span.

They went 1-2 in their first two games and now have an idea of what they need to do to win a division title.

The score was tied at 17 with 10:43 remaining and the quarterback threw a pass intended for a tight end that was picked off by the rookies. The Chiefs took the lead for the first time in the game with a 99-yard touchdown return for a score byWatson. On the previous play, Everett gained 26 yards on a catch and ran to set up the goal line. The pick-six showed the growing pains between Herbert and the other person. He signed a two-year contract with the Bolts.
