Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn’t have to worry too much about buying time in the pocket en route to a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans on Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium.

The quarterback was sacked just once, occurring when linebacker Jacob Martin found him in the backfield within the first few minutes of the game.

Of course, he had help from the offensive line along the way. The line shined throughout the night as they saved Mahomes time from Texans defenders.

“I think they did a great job,” Mahomes said. “Obviously without the preseason games, it’s hard to get out there and kind of form that bond that offensive lines do, how they think like each other and pass off stuff. I think they did a great job of not only pass protecting me with all the games and that defensive line, which is a very good defensive line but within the run game of making their blocks and sending their angles so Clyde can go out there and make plays happen.”
