NFL | Chiefs narrowly defeat Raiders 30-29

(Kansas City) Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes to Travis Kelce, helped his team to a 17-point comeback despite a questionable call from officials and the Kansas City Chiefs extended their winning streak against the Las Vegas Raiders winning 30-29 on Monday night.

Posted at 12:18 a.m.

The Chiefs did so despite blunders on defense, including allowing 58 and 48-yard touchdown passes from Davante Adams. They were also awarded a roughing penalty on defensive tackle Chris Jones, which nullified a turnover before halftime.

With the Chiefs (4-1) leading 30-23 due to a failed two-point conversion attempt on Kelce’s final touchdown, Adams earned his second major of the game.

However, rather than kicking and getting an extra point to tie the game, Raiders coach Josh McDaniels also opted for the two-point conversion.

And like the Chiefs, it was unsuccessful. Josh Jacobs, who has been battering the Chiefs’ defense all night, was blocked at the goal line with 4:29 remaining.

The Raiders won the ball one last time with less than three minutes to go. A long pass to Adams, near the sidelines, seemed to put the Raiders in a good position to make a field goal.

However, the play was reviewed and Adams failed to get both feet inbounds. On a fourth down, where a yard was needed and 47 seconds remained on the clock, Carr tried to reach Adams. But receiver Hunter Renfrow collided with his teammate and both players fell and the pass was errant.

Carr finished the night with 241 passing yards. Jacobs rushed for 133 yards and a major as the Raiders (1-4) lost to the Chiefs for the fourth straight time.

In the defeat, Daniel Carlson made three field goals in as many attempts, bringing his series to 38 in a row.
