The Latest: Chiefs QB Mahomes off to another hot start
The Latest on the third Sunday of the NFL regular season (all times EDT):
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is off to another solid start in his first regular-season game at Arrowhead Stadium.
Mahomes, who is 3-0 as the starter with all his wins on the road, led the Chiefs to a touchdown drive to open their game against San Francisco. He was 4 of 7 for 48 yards, and converted a fourth-and-inches by keeping it on an option and taking a big shot from a 49ers defender.
Kareem Hunt finished the drive with a touchdown plunge to give Kansas City a 7-0 lead.

Ray Lewis returned to his home stadium for a celebration marking his entry into the NFL Hall of Fame.
After the Ravens were introduced before their game against Denver, the song “Hot in Herre” by Nelly boomed over the PA.
Lewis emerged from the tunnel wearing his yellow Hall of Fame jacket and did his trademark dance while the soggy crowd cheered.
The city of Baltimore held a parade for Lewis on Saturday. He’s the second member of the Ravens to enter the Hall of Fame, joining Jonathan Ogden.
The Cincinnati Bengals are joining in support of relief efforts for those affected by Hurricane Florence, which has devastated the Carolinas.
The Bengals, like the Panthers, will wear stickers that read “One Carolina” on the back of their helmets for Sunday’s game in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Bengals said on Twitter “we send our well wishes to all who were affected.”
Dana Outlaw, the mayor of New Bern, North Carolina —an area hit particularly hard by the hurricane— received an invite from Panthers coach Ron Rivera to hit the team’s “Keep Pounding” drum before the game.
