Raiders end Chiefs’ winning streak with 40-32 upset

Getty Images

The Raiders had a statement game.

They scored 16 points in the fourth quarter for a 40-32 victory. It ended the Chiefs’ 13-game winning streak, with Kansas City’s last loss coming to Tennessee 35-32 last Nov. 10.

The Raiders led by double digits late in the fourth quarter. Patrick Mahomes, making his 41st career start counting the postseason, has never lost by double digits. The Chiefs did avoid losing by double digits.

Mahomes, though, threw his first interception of the season. With 5:31 remaining and the Chiefs trailing by nine, Andy Reid elected to go for it on fourth-and-seven from his own 28.

Mahomes tried to find Travis Kelce and instead found Raiders safety Jeff Heath, who returned it 47 yards to the Kansas City 2-yard line. Josh Jacobs‘ 2-yard touchdown run, his second score of the game, extended the Raiders lead to 40-24.

The Chiefs got a late touchdown, with Mahomes hitting Kelce with 3:57 remaining, to avoid the second half shutout. The teams were tied 24-24 at halftime.

Kansas City came close to getting the ball back, but on fourth-and-one from the Kansas City 44 at the two-minute warning, Derek Carr picked up the first down on a quarterback sneak.

Two kneel downs later, Carr and Raiders had pulled off the upset.

Carr went 22-of-31 for 347 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. Rookie Henry Ruggs caught two passes for 118 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown, and Josh Jacobs ran for 77 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

Mahomes completed 22 of 43 passes for 340 yards with two touchdowns and the interception.

  1. Carr>Mahomes And it’s not even close, it’s not really an upset when the winning team is much better than the losing team

  2. Mahomes walked off the field without shaking Carrs hand.

    Are we going to get an article on that?

    Asking for a friend..

  3. The Chiefs are finding out what it’s like to have a target on your back every week.
    Congrats to the Raiders. They deserved that win and totally outplayed the Chiefs today.

  4. Congrats raiders! Hopefully Pat, Andy, the offensive line, and the entire defense can use it as a wake up call…

    Thanks to TN, KC gets a long week to prepare for an up and coming Buffalo team.

  5. For a kid who received a half BILLION dollar contract, youngblood and his team should win every single, solitary game. One SB win does not a dynasty make. He looks like a stuffed sausage out there. I noticed he didn’t go out to contratulate any Raiders either.

    Congrats to the Raiders, you took him to the woodshed.

  6. The Raiders defense mimicked a lot of what the Chargers and NE did a couple of weeks ago…Chiefs will have a long week off to figure things out.

  7. Mahomes walked off the field without shaking anyone’s hand, hug, etc. probably because of the scare from being so close to Gilmour of the Pats and/or coaches told him to just go to the locker room at the end of the game. That’s what I’m guessing anyway.

  8. No offense to the Raiders, they played a great game today. However, if there’s any team that exposed the Chiefs so far this season, it was the Patriots. They held that team to only 6 points in the first half at Arrowhead, and a total of 13 points at the end of the third quarter. If not for having awful backup quarterbacks, the Chiefs would be 3-2 right now.

  9. Congrats to the raiders. They played hard and earned their win. The O line needs work and the D didn’t play anything like they had the last 11 months. Mahomes is great in September but I’m noticing an October trend, small sample size but it is what it is. Worse point loss of his career at 8 points.

  10. Wait! I thought after the Bills smoked the Raiders in Vegas the general consensus was the Raiders stink. So the Raiders are good again? This back and forth narrative in an attempt to discredit the Bills and Josh Allen gets confusing.

  11. Talk of KC duplicating the NE dynasty is JUST that– talk, NE’s 20 year run will never be duplicated. Never

  12. Rivalry games, they’re always a toss up no matter who it is. Raiders came to play and Chiefs (at least the offense showed up) defense was an abomination. Not sweating it. They’ll bring it in that brand new stadium in LV, just wait.

    Lame. Especially after the covid scare last week. Nice try again. You’re batting .164

  14. Their D is putrid. Mathieu at 14 mil as a Rover which makes me laugh how bad that value is, and then you look at their cap hell situation and what Watkins always does at 14 mil per on offense as soft as he is on offense.

    BB laid the blueprint on D now in numerous match ups, bur the Raiders D is also bad.

    That O Line is also in serious trouble which the media is ignoring which goes well beyond their horrible run defense as well.

    lol

  15. The Chiefs are trending in the wrong direction. First they needed an OT to beat a rookie QB making his first appearance in the NFL on a short notice, then struggled to beat a journeyman Brian Hoyer, now a loss. They may have peaked a little too early.

  16. You can’t expect Mahomes to do everything. KC’s secondary was porous and their O-line the same. Mahomes was scrambling all over the place. Credit to the Raiders, though. They exploited every opportunity big time.

  17. Seems like every time a player gets engaged or married, they fall apart as seen by mahomes today. It happened to Aaron Rodgers when he was with Danica, once he got rid of her, he is back to his old form. Not a coincidence

  18. Easy on the Mahomes commentary… he and Wilson are still the two best QBs in the league and Mahomes would be every team’s #1 pick to build a team around for the next 10 years. Yes, he didn’t look great today or last week against the Patriots. But he’s still head and shoulders against the rest of the NFL QBs.
    The Patriots always give him troubles and Gruden likely utilized some of the concepts. Nice win by the Raiders, who are one heck of a high beta and inconsistent team.
    Look, it’s hard to win on a sustained basis in the NFL. I think guys like Frank Clark and Chris Jones are bufoons for bringing up the word “dynasty” after you won one Super Bowl and are a ticking bomb in terms of cap hell ruining your team in 3 years. There won’t be another team having a run like the Patriots, perhaps ever. You can’t recreate Brady and Belichick and while Mahomes and Reid are pretty decent, paying Mahomes $50mm will lead to many casualties in terms of talent and that will make their ability to sustain excellence impossible.

    Nope. The Golden Boy SNUBBED Carr.

    Let’s see if the media is consistent.

  20. Yes BostonSteve it will never be duplicated because Goodell would never let another team cheat and get away with paying players under the table. His connection with Kraft us obvious and he let them blatantly get away with cheating over and over again with no real penalties. Quit pretending that dynasty was real.

  21. Lets be candid here!!! I wrote in blogs and keep telling people this IS NOT the coach for a Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes needs a COACH like the one who Coach Brett Favre to the HALL OF FAME , The one who got out of his way from the first snap to the end who let him loose to be great…. INTERCEPTIONS and all, because it didn’t matter if Favre toss couple interceptions they were nothing but gloried punts because you were going to leave the field with a LOST courtesy of the scoreboard……..

    Someone needs to tell Andy reid he has Patrick Mahomes that gunslinging game changer, so cut the gimmick plays and hand offs thats going nowhere and let the KID SLING IT, instead of waiting till the TIME RUNS OUT……………

    i nearly broke my television because you seeing this great talent getting wasted by passive/ pedestrian play calling.I could count on 2 fingers where i saw Mahomes went deep early in the game that is insane,, I will never forget Andy Reid becoming the 4th coach in NFL history to go the whole 2014 season without a Wide receiver catching a Touchdown PASS and he was OK with it.

  22. NE fans’ jealousy of the Chiefs is expected. KC is a better team and Mahomes is better than any of their QB’s, and also better than Brady.

  23. Happy for my Raiders, any given Sunday and all that, but congrats for beating a tough KC team in their house! I don’t think we fans should start a postgame handshakes controversy either, I don’t blame Mahomes one bit after the close call with Gilmour the other game. 👍🏻

    When Mahomes has 3 or more rings come and talk to me.

  27. Have people forgotten that last week Mahomes got his hand slapped for engaging with opposing teams players for a post game handshake. Now he doesn’t do it and y’all still mad. That’s 2020 for you. No matter how hard someone tries to please you, you only look for the bad.

  28. Well deserved loss & I’m a diehard Chiefs fan. Over-confidence has shown the last 2 weeks, NO ONE will lay down for you in the NFL.

  29. Carr is not better than Mahomes and if you think so then you need your head examined. The Chiefs lost this game becasue their defense is atrocious. They wouldn’t have even been in the game were it not for Mahomes.

    Paying players under the table? That was the Broncos

  31. Pump the brakes, Derek Carr has now won 3 games versus Andy Reid’s teams.

    Reid’s teams have won 10 games against teams quarterbacked by Carr in the same time period.

    Today is Gruden’s first win against a Chief team as a Raider HC in 19 years.

    Chiefs still comfortably leading their division, LV played okay today, KC played down to their competition and it showed their flaws in play calling as well as not committing glaring penalties which also took 10 points off the scoreboard for them. Chiefs defense needs some attention to detail as well. Scorched on deep passes rather uncharacteristic.

    Rematch in Vegas on Nov 22nd will much better tell us what’s what – about both teams.

  32. Wow, the Raiders win yet 90% of the article is fawning all over the most overrated QB this side of Lamar Jackson.

  33. Everyone gets a free win now and then….

    The Raiders still suck and don’t a have QB.

  34. Patrick Mahomes took a team to the Superbowl and won it with a Running backs by committee/ running game rank 23rd, that means they did not get in his way since they were an afterthought, Since drafting Clyde Edwards-Helaire all he has done is got in Mahomes way courtesy of the playcalling since he is getting force fed into the offense which has cause the offense to be out of sync, Patrick Mahomes is a Talent that Does not required the need for a Runningback,

    Clyde Edwards should have been replace by a receiver very early in this game who could be that added weapon since Clyde is looking like he is running in quicksand going nowhere fast and is wasting plays that could be in the Air threatening the endzone. The biggest Mistake the Chiefs have made and it was call out on twitter on draft nite was not drafting Chase Claypool who was tailormade for Mahomes, Since he is this Hybrid Receiver who can play the intermediate or long game and most importantly can Block.

    It never made sense why the Chiefs would waste that high a pick on a runningback when they just won the Super bowl without an ELITE One.

  35. It took 4 games, but the Chiefs D is rounding into typical form. Frank Clark and the Honey Badger are stealing money from the Chiefs.

  37. Raiders got help from the refs and got lucky, who cares everyone knows the QB controversy and failure is right around the corner under Gruden.

    Congrats on your first win against the Chiefs in a decade or so.

  38. Lol Chiefs fans welcome to the same tired comments that Pats fans heard after every loss for the last almost 20 years.

    Chiefs are 4-1 and Mahomes played well. The D and Oline not so much but everybody has poor games a couple times a year.

    Glad to see the Raiders win though nice for their fans and any time the Super Bowl champs lose is good for everyone else in the league

  39. The Raiders squeaked out a win finally, let me change my name and pretend that I am a different person to stake the comments like dems stack votes via ballot fraud, real cool man.

  40. Chargers had a good game plan, Pats would have won with Cam, Raiders took off the top and jammed the middle= Chiefs exposed!

    I was trying to figure out why the media was acting like their D was good at any time in recent years.

    The money they have in all of their pricey players, save for Jones (and Mahomes) is way too bloated. Next year, they are in serious trouble.

    Fisher, Watkins, Mathieu, Clark, etc are way overpaid for the level of quality you’d want.

    Hill gets doubled and doesn’t run enough routes either.

    lmao!

    Yes, 2 dynasties formed in two different decades has us jealous of a team that just went to their first sb in 50 years last year.

    That’s rich.

  43. No nhpats, Goodell allowed Kraft to pay Brady under the table thru his tb12 foundation and you know this so quit playing dumb. You know this is the truth

  44. Down the road:

    After watching the Vegas pass rush give PM a hard afternoon, wondering how much luck TBrady is gonna’ need to stay upright in passing situations 2 weeks from now.

  45. Maybe bad sport flopper Mahomes is his new name. Slinking off the field like a little baby. Poor baby. Yet the media and PFT fawning all over him.

  46. All these comments about dynasty and greatest ever and related nonsense are just that, nonsense. Brady is the GOAT and it’s not even close. Mahomes is on a good trajectory early on in his career but he only has to win a mere 5 more Super Bowls before qualifying to enter that conversation. Good luck! I do wish Mahomes well because he is the real deal. But the odds are highly, highly stacked against him– or anyone else trying to chase Tommy Brady. You’re not going to see someone win as much as he and the Patriots did for that long a time frame. Period.
    Meanwhile throughout all of last year Ravens fans hyped Lamar up as better than Mahomes. Unstoppable. Changing the QB position. We’ve never seen anything like him– he’s different than Kapernick, McNabb, Vick, Cunningham and all those other running QBs. How’s that going in Baltimore? That offense is really scary, ranked #21 in the league in overall offense while Lamar sits at #26 in overall QB play.
    Are you really going to pay him Mahomes Bucks? $40-50mm a year for a guy with no playoff wins, no accuracy, and terrible decision making?

  52. Raider fans enjoy your Super Bowl today. That’s the closest to the real thing that you’re gonna get. Your daddy Andy Reid will be back next week!!

  53. LOl I love the fact he lost a game finally after 13 straight wins and he is some how exposed of no that good hahah Just stop the Raiders played well but stop hating on Pat MVP super bowl MVP and already HOF but ok

  54. Mahomes looked close to tears and was pouting the entire last few mins…then walked off without shaking hands with a single player or coach. Not exactly a class act.

  55. Please, Pats fans. This segment is not about your team, or Tom Brady who is no longer with your team. Get it?

  56. LOL at anybody who thinks Derek Carr is even within seeing/smelling/tasting, touching/feeling/looking or even thinking distance of how good Pat Mahomes is.

  57. Raiders fans, enjoy it. You guys won your super bowl today. Enjoy it when you are sitting at home watching teams besides the Raiders playing in the playoffs.

  58. Congrats to Raiders fans, the Raiders brought it today, but they did need the Refs to make several terrible calls, or ignore pass interference. Not to mention taking 2 CHiefs TD’s off the board. Refs beat the Chiefs.

  62. The Raiders haven’t put any heat on a QB yet this season, but today they were getting home without much blitzing. Weird. And you thin skinned kingdom fans crying about the refs need to shut your holes. KC linemen were holding onto Raider rushers like they were life preservers.

  63. I knew we would win.

    It’s the weekend of AL Davis death.

    And the Ruggs factor meant that you can’t cram the box.

    AFC west champs in the making.

  64. Patriots fans are certainly following the Chiefs closely.

    How is 1 lost indicative of them now being “overrated” and the quest for a dynasty “over”?

    Did people expect them to go undefeated?

  65. Mahomes likely didn’t talk to anyone after the game so as to avoid putting others in danger due to possible COVID-19 exposure. Better to be safe during this dangerous time.

    But he played the whole game sweating and exposing people then, why the snub after the game and 3 hrs in close proximity?

  66. This was the first game the Raiders got any kind of pass rush… and it was consistent. Nice to see, but can they keep it going?

    Let’s hope so.
