Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City Chiefs kept beating Derek Carr and Las Vegas Raiders 30-29 on Monday Night Football to close out Week 5 NFL season.

There was no love lost between these longtime rivals. The Chiefs lead the all-time series 71-54-2.

Here are the best plays from Monday’s match.

Kansas City Chiefs 30, Las Vegas Raiders 29

4 and … 6!

The Raiders struck first thanks to a recovering Car-Davante Adams duet Coach Josh McDaniels went for it on 4th-and-1 at the Las Vegas 42, and Carr found Adams wide open up the middle of the field for a huge 58-yard TD.

Expect the unexpected

A few plays and 48 yards of pass interference later, the Raiders were back in the end zone on this one Josh Jacobs to run The great work done by his offensive line in the game was superb.

Old reliable

No tight end has gained more yards through the air than Travis Kelce over the past three seasons, and Mahomes connected on his favorite target for the Chiefs’ first TD of the day. That capped a much-needed 11-play, 75-yard drive that brought KC within 10.

Questionable call?

Whistles poured from the stands after Chiefs DT Chris Jones was whistled for roughing a passerby after a possible striptease. A punt would have given KC the ball at midfield with just over a minute to play, but it led to a 50-yard field goal by the Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson instead.

A familiar sight

Mohamed. Kielce. It’s like clockwork. KC went up by less than three on its first drive of the third quarter when Kelce hauled in his second TD pass of the night.

Triple subject

The Chiefs third TD meant three things. 1: They lead 24-20. 2. Momentum was on their side. 3. Kelce scored his third TD of the drive, and he did it with just 24 receiving yards to that point. Talk about the threat of the red zone.

Make it smart

After a defensive holding call after a missed Chiefs FG led to another string of downs for Mahomes and his offense, he wore — you guessed it — No. 87 for his the fourth TD reception.


The Raiders have a dynamic pass-catching threat of their own, and after a dandy double move, Adams found himself wide open behind the defense for a potentially game-tying TD reception. Las Vegas decided to go for two and fell short, trailing 30-29 with four minutes to play.

Kansas City’s defense held on fourth-and-1 at midfield when Hunter Renfrow and Adams stumbled and fell, leading to a coup d’état. The KC win moved Mahomes to 8-1 against the Raiders and marked his biggest comeback of the regular season (17 points).
