Patrick Mahomes's tough season continued as his Kansas City Chiefs beat the New England Patriots 23-16, with the quarterback injuring his throwing hand during the road victory which secured a fourth consecutive AFC West championship.
The game started well for the Patriots, who scored a touchdown on their first drive while Mahomes threw an interception on the Chiefs' first trip up the field.
The signal-caller seemed to injure his right hand on the second drive but stayed on the field to help his side score 23 unanswered points, securing the win despite a late New England rally.
Mahomes – who threw for 283 yards against the Patriots – already suffered an ankle injury early in the season and dislocated his kneecap while playing the Denver Broncos. He was spotted in the x-ray room at Foxborough after Sunday's game.
The Green Bay Packers won 20-15 against the Washington Redskins, the Broncos got just their fifth win of the season as they triumphed 38-24 over the Houston Texans and the Ohio derby finished with the Cleveland Browns scoring 27 points to the Cincinnati Bengals' 19.
The Baltimore Ravens continued their winning ways to beat the Buffalo Bills 24-17, the Arizona Cardinals fell 23-17 to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Los Angeles Rams won 28-12 over Seattle Seahawks.
