Well, it wasn’t exactly a game that came down to the wire, but it still was good to have football back nonetheless.
The Kansas City Chiefs completely dominated the Houston Texans on Opening Night of the NFL’s 2020 season. Houston, who actually scored the first touchdown of the game, allowed 31 unanswered points to Kansas City as the Chiefs earned a 34-20 win at Arrowhead Stadium.
The good news is there were plenty of highlights. Here’s every touchdown scored in Thursday night’s game:
The first touchdown of the season went to first-year Texan running back David Johnson, a 19-yard run.
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes tied it up by finding tight end Travis Kelce for a 6-yard TD reception.
Mahomes then found receiver Sammy Watkins for a 2-yard touchdown pass to extend the Kansas City lead to 14-7.
Kansas City rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire recorded his first career touchdown with an impressive 27-yard TD run.
Mahomes to receiver Tyreek Hill for a 3-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.
Houston’s Deshaun Watson did, however, throw his first touchdown pass on the season with a 19-yard strike to Jordan Atkins midway through the fourth quarter.
Watson added a score with his legs, a 1-yard run, to cut the Houston deficit to 31-20.
