The Raiders signed DeSean Jackson to help stretch the field vertically and his first catch for Las Vegas displayed his ability to do just that.

But then things went South.

Jackson caught a deep pass over the middle from quarterback Derek Carr. But when he stopped to make a move, cornerback Rashad Fenton punched the ball out from Jackson’s arms. Safety Tyrann Mathieu was there to recover the loose ball, giving Kansas City an extra possession.

Starting the drive at their own 27, the Chiefs made it into Raiders territory before the drive stalled. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes pushed his club down the field with a 32-yard pass to receiver Tyreek Hill on third-and-2 at the Las Vegas 49. But right tackle Andrew Wylie was flagged for holding on the next play, putting Kansas City behind the chains.

Mahomes was flushed out of the pocket by defensive end Maxx Crosby on third-and-10 at the Las Vegas 17 and had to fire out of bounds.

But, Harrison Butker connected on his 35-yard field goal attempt to give Kansas City a 27-14 lead.

Raiders running back and kick returner Jalen Richard is questionable to return with a ribs injury suffered on a return in the third quarter.

Chiefs cornerback Charvarius Ward is also questionable to return with an illness.

6 responses to “Chiefs turn DeSean Jackson fumble into field goal, lead Raiders 27-14

  1. If he had just kept running forward he runs in untouched for the TD but for some reason he stopped and turned back in to the defenders.

  2. Kansas City’s defense and offense made the fade experience a bad night. Special teams looked special also.

    Win streak continues at Arrowhead West. Reid should’ve instructed the bus driver to take a lap around their home field away from home before heading to the airport.

  3. The Raiders came out the second half, drove the length of the field and scored a touchdown. On their next possession they had another good drive going when Jackson fumbled at the Chiefs 17 yard line. A TD would have made it 24-21, and the Raiders were right back in the game. That fumble just took the wind out of the Raiders, and they never recovered. The Raiders might well have lost anyway, but it would have been a close game. You can’t cover Tyreke Hill when Mahomes is hitting his targets with pinpoint accuracy. It’s impossible.

  4. When Jackson was here in Washington he lost several TDs making the kinds of moves; which were ostensibly designed to taunt the opponent!

    He has an inexplicable need to be rude, disrespectful and most of all SELFISH, when he has the ball! I have NO idea why any team would kill it’s locker-room and chemistry continuing to sign this clown!
