Chiefs vs. Dolphins score in NFL Germany game live updates: Chiefs  leading  21-0

Chiefs used to big leads, but history says don’t count out Dolphins
Today marks the 23rd time the Chiefs have taken at least 21-point lead in a game since Patrick Mahomes’ first full season as starter in 2018, most of any team over that span. Kansas City has gone on to win each of the previous 22 such games.

On the other side, it hasn’t been long since the Dolphins overcame a 21-point deficit. Miami trailed the Ravens 28-7 at halftime in Week 2 last season and rallied to win 42-38 with a go-ahead touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa to Jaylen Waddle in the final minute.

Chiefs defense continues to emerge
This Chiefs defense might be special.

Also, Trent McDuffie is one of the best cornerbacks in the league.

And Mike Edwards makes one of the smartest mid-play decisions of the season, lateraling the ball to Bryan Cook for a game-swinging 59-yard touchdown.

Chiefs take 21-0 lead on wild fumble return TD
Chiefs CB Trent McDuffie strips Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill, Kansas City safety Mike Edwards picked it up and before Hill could get Edwards to the ground, Edwards lateraled the ball to teammate Bryan Cook who ran 59 yards for the touchdown.

The wild play gives the Chiefs a 21-0 lead in the second quarter.

Strong Chiefs crowd loving KC start
I’d say its 70-30 in favor of Chiefs fans here in the stadium, and they’re loving this one so far.

The Dolphins entered Sunday’s game in Frankfurt leading the league in scoring with a 33.9 average.

Through almost the entire first half, Miami’s punted four times and turned it over once.

Chiefs 21, Dolphins 0.

It would be the first scoreless half for Miami all season.

Chiefs exploiting Dolphins’ emphasis on Travis Kelce

The Chiefs have really used tight end Travis Kelce as a decoy in the first half — and with just two minutes left in the second quarter, the Chiefs lead the Dolphins, 14-0.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has targeted Kelce just two times in the first half, both completions leading to 7 yards. The Dolphins, similar to the Broncos last week, have often dedicated two defenders to Kelce, who entered Sunday’s game leading the Chiefs with 583 receiving yards.

Mahomes, though, has connected on eight passes to his collection of receivers — rookie Rashee Rice, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore, Justin Watson and Mecole Hardman — for 90 yards and a touchdown.

Jerick McKinnon extends Chiefs’ lead
The Chiefs end the run of seven consecutive punts by the two teams with a 13-play, 95-yard scoring drive capped by a 17-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Jerick McKinnon.

McKinnon now has 12 receiving touchdowns since the start of last season, three more than any other running back over that span.

Kadarius Toney has moved past frustrating opener
Chiefs WR Kadarius Toney has bounced back after a frustrating season opener in which he had a pair of crucial drops.

Including his first catch today, Toney now has 19 catches for 126 yards and a touchdown since and has not dropped a pass over that span.

Chiefs use 2 early timeouts
Andy Reid and the Chiefs are typically really good at saving their timeouts. Burned two because of operation issues already.

What stadium is being used in Germany for Dolphins-Chiefs?
Today’s game between the Chiefs and Dolphins is being played at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany. Deutsche Bank Park is a retractable-roof stadium that is home to Eintracht Frankfurt, a club in Germany’s top soccer league Bundesliga.

Amid complaints of the artificial playing surface for NFL games in London earlier this season, this field in Frankfurt is a hybrid surface composed of 90% national grass with synthetic fibers woven in to boost its durability.

Dolphins have been stout since opening drive
Chiefs were rolling on their opening drive.

Since: 13 plays for 33 yards and three punts.

Dolphins’ defense settling in. And feels like the offense is close to an explosive play.
