Travis Kelce had the first four touchdown game of his NFL career, and the Kansas City Chiefs rallied to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 30-29 on Monday night.
Intractable all evening near the pay zone, the No. 87 Chiefs (4-1) set a new mark for a tight end of the team.
Las Vegas suffered its fourth loss in five games, despite strong offensive performances from receiver Davante Adams (124 yards and two touchdowns) and running back Josh Jacobs (149 yards and a touchdown).
It was also the fourth time the Raiders had lost a game by a margin of six points or less this season.
Kelce had seven receptions for a modest 25 yards, but more importantly, he made the important catches to bring KC back into the game after trailing 17 points in the second quarter.
He is also the first player in the history of the Goodell circuit to catch four balls on less than 10 yards for touchdowns.
For his part, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, in guiding his club to victory, achieved the most important comeback of his career in the regular season.
The Raiders were thought to be in deep trouble when the hosts made it 30-23 late in the game, but Derek Carr immediately responded to Mahomes by joining his favorite target Adams for a 48-yard major, his second long touchdown of the game. evening.
Rookie head coach Josh McDaniels was bold, however, opting for a two-point convert that, if successful, would have given the Raiders a one-point lead.
Jacobs was stopped inches from the goal line, however, leaving KC hanging on to a slim one-point lead.
After a punt from Andy Reid’s formation, the Raiders were given one last chance to leave Arrowhead Stadium with the win.
They were, however, unable to convert a fourth down and one yard to go when Adams and Renfrow collided during their respective pass runs.
Carr and his offense were at their own line of 46 at this point.

In a fit of frustration, Adams lashed out at a photographer who got in his way as he walked back to his locker room.
The Raiders No. 17 simply pushed the man to the ground before continuing on his way.
