After a slow start by their standards, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs ran amuck down the stretch against the San Francisco 49ers, with the star passer finishing Week 7 with 423 passing yards and three scores.

Offensive spotlight: Chiefs wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster caught all seven of his targets for 124 receiving yards, one touchdown and five first downs. He caught both of his contested targets, recorded four plays of 15 or more yards and generated a perfect 158.3 passer rating from Patrick Mahomes.

Defensive spotlight: Kansas City DI Chris Jones had yet another strong game, adding two more sacks and two more hurries to his 2022 stat line. Jones entered this game with the highest pass-rush grade among players at his position, and that won't change after this one.

Rookie spotlight: Isiah Pacheco got the start for Kansas City. He ran the ball eight times for 43 yards, with 21 of those yards coming after contact.

Offensive line spotlight: The Chiefs offensive line was solid today. On first review, they allowed one sack, two hits and nine hurries, with four of the five starters grading above 70.0.
