UNDATED (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have begun their NFL schedule the way they ended the previous season, with a loss in Kansas City.

Patrick Mahomes (mah-MOHZ’) threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score as the Chiefs held off the Browns, 33-29 in a rematch of last season’s playoff showdown.

Tyreek Hill caught 11 passes for 197 yards and a touchdown. Travis Kelce hauled in a pair of TD catches, including the go-ahead score with 7:02 remaining as the Chiefs finished off their rally from a 22-10 halftime deficit.

Baker Mayfield threw for 321 yards, but he was picked off by Chiefs cornerback Mike Hughes with 1:09 left.

The Browns are 1-21 in season openers since the rebirth of the franchise in 1999, including an NFL-record 17 in a row.
