The Kansas City Chiefs got the best of the Las Vegas Raiders 35-31 in their first trip to the Raiders’ new stadium.
Sunday night did not disappoint after a long day of great games. It was a tightly contested game all the way down to the last 30 seconds. Derek Carr and Patrick Mahomes traded blows with both teams not scoring on six of the eighteen drives. Two of the six ended with interceptions, one by Mahomes at the end of the first half and one by Carr at the end of the game. Both interceptions came with time winding down and the quarterbacks trying to force the ball.
Mahomes tore it up throwing for 348 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception. He kept things going, throwing to his two favorite targets, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Kelce had 8 receptions for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns, including the game winning score. Hill had 102 yards and a touchdown. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was also a big piece of the Chiefs win, rushing for 69 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Carr threw for 275 yards, 3 touchdowns, and an interception. Both Nelson Agholor and Darren Waller had 88 yards and a touchdown. The Kansas City defense was able to hold Josh Jacobs in check, only allowing 55 rushing yards and a touchdown.
When the dust settled Kansas City was able to make up for their only loss of the season by defeating the Raiders, splitting the season series 1-1. In the post game interview, Mahomes quoted his father saying “Players make plays” and he lived up to all of that. He showed why the Chiefs are reigning Super Bowl Champs and he is the reigning MVP, leading the team down the field in 1 minute and 15 seconds for the game winning score.
