Chiefs Cash Out in Las Vegas

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Las Vegas Raiders by a score of 41 to 14 in Las Vegas on Sunday night. The Chiefs found a groove on both offense and defense, and they now find themselves in first place in the AFC West after a difficult start to the season.

In the first quarter, the scoring began when Patrick Mahomes found Tyreek Hill from eight yards out for a touchdown. This was the only score of the first quarter, and the Chiefs led the Raiders 7-0 after 15 minutes of play. 

The Raiders quickly responded with a Derek Carr touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow to make the score 7-7. On the ensuing drive, the Chiefs could only manage a Harrison Butker field goal, but his kick gave them a 10-7 lead halfway through the second quarter.

Shortly thereafter, the Chiefs would score again on another Hill touchdown reception. This touchdown put the Chiefs up 17-7. After Butler missed a field goal just before the half, Kansas City took that same 17-7 lead into the break.

The Raiders came out firing on all cylinders to start the third quarter when Carr found Bryan Edwards for a 37-yard touchdown. This score made it 17-14. However, the Chiefs responded with a Noah Gray touchdown reception to make the score 24-14 and then a Butker field goal to make it 27-14. The Raiders seemingly had no answers for the dynamic Chiefs offense as the third quarter came to a close. 

It was more of the same for the Chiefs in the fourth quarter. After a completed fake punt pass on fourth and seven, Mahomes would find Darrel Williams for a 38-yard touchdown pass. This put the Chiefs up by a score of 34-14. Byron Pringle then decided to get in on all the action by catching a 22-yard touchdown pass to put the Chiefs up 41-14. The Raiders drove the length of the field but failed to score in the waning minutes of the game as Darren Waller had a touchdown pass called back because of a holding.

If you had any Chiefs offensive player on your fantasy team, then you had a good night. Patrick Mahomes was 35-50 for 406 yards and five touchdowns. Darrel Williams had 11 carries for 43 yards and a receiving touchdown. Hill caught two touchdown passes, and Travis Kelce had 119 yards receiving. 

Next week, the Chiefs host the Dallas Cowboys in what has the early makings of a potential old west shootout. However, if this is the Chiefs team that we see for the rest of the year, lookout. This team looks very, very scary.
