On Monday night, the Kansas City Chiefs were down by a lot against the Las Vegas Raiders. Everything, from the big plays to the calls by the refs, went in favor of their longtime AFC West rivals.
One call in particular got them going.
Nobody in the Chiefs locker room believed Chris Jones's roughing penalty on Derek Carr. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs overcame a 10-point deficit to win 30-29.
Mahomes tossed four touchdown throws to Travis Kelce. "Everyone had to fight back"
Davante Adams' 48-yard touchdown reception with 4:29 left gave the Raiders hope. Kansas City missed a 2-point attempt following Kelce's last touchdown grab, leaving the score 30-23.
Raiders coach Josh McDaniels opted for 2 rather than a tying extra point.
Josh Jacobs had been tearing up the Chiefs defense all night, but he was stopped right before the goal line.
A deep third-down toss to Adams along the Kansas City sideline put the Raiders in field-goal range with 2:29 remaining.
Carr threw incomplete on fourth-and-1 with 47 seconds remaining before the Chiefs ran out the clock.
