The Kansas City Chiefs secured a gritty win against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. The close 27-20 final score wasn’t what some analysts expected in the Sunday afternoon matchup, but Kansas City managed to do enough to earn their fourth victory of the 2023 season.
Patrick Mahomes didn’t throw an interception, Jawaan Taylor wasn’t penalized, and the Chiefs’ defense played sharp football in all four quarters to keep Minnesota’s prolific offense at bay.
Fans reacted to the game on Twitter, expressing their glee during Kansas City’s scoring plays, and disgruntlement on the Vikings’ final drive, when a last-second touchdown could have spelled disaster for the Chiefs.
Every game presents a new challenge for teams in the NFL, and Kansas City was certainly up to the task of meeting Minnesota head-on to advance their record to 4-1 during their 2023 championship defense campaign.
Check out how these fans responded to the Chiefs win on Twitter:
They made us sweat… but Kelce comes in for the Hail Mary to play defense and Mike Danna gets the sack to end the game! Chiefs win 27-20! 5th consecutive game the Chiefs defense allows 2 touchdowns or less! Chiefs are 4-1 and #1 in the AFC standings. #ChiefsKingdom

Great win for the Chiefs and even better with a Kelce T down. Great day for the Swifties.
