Stroud finished 16-of-21 for 274 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions in the win.

Saturday Night Football saw the defending Super Bowl champions emerge victorious. The Kansas City Chiefs eliminated the Miami Dolphins, winning 26-7. Rookie WR Rashee Rice had 130 yards receiving a a touchdown for the Chiefs. The Dolphins offense was never able to get going. Kansas City held Miami to 264 yards of total offense, and Miami converted only 1-of-12 third down attempts.
