KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes completed four touchdown passes to Travis Kelce, the Chiefs overcame a 17-point deficit and another controversial penalty for alleged roughness against the quarterback, and Kansas City overcame the Monday 30-29 at the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Chiefs won despite showing serious defensive fragility, mainly on touchdown catches of 58 and 48 yards by Devante Adams. He also conspired against defensive tackle Chris Young’s penalty, invalidating what should have been a fumble recovered by Kansas City before halftime.
Adams’ second touchdown catch came right after Kelce’s last touchdown, when Kansas City (4-1) missed a 2-point conversion, making it 30-23.
But instead of looking for an extra point to tie the score, Raiders coach Josh McDaniels also went for the conversion. Josh Jacobs, who penetrated the Chiefs’ defense all night, was stopped just short of the goal line with 4:29 remaining.
The Raiders had the ball again, with 2:29 remaining. A long third-down pass to Adams on the side appeared to put Las Vegas in the field goal zone.
However, video review of the play showed that Adams did not put both feet on the ground. Carr threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-one with 47 seconds left before the Chiefs ran out of time.
