Chiefs vs Raiders recap

The Raiders had a chance to win the game on the final drive. They needed just a field goal after a defensive stand to give themselves two-and-a-half minutes to win the game. However, Davante Adams was ruled out of bounds on a late play in the game. Then the Raiders went deep on 4th and 1 to no avail and ended up turning the ball over on downs to effectively end the game.

Both of the quarterbacks threw the ball well. Patrick Mahomes was 29 for 43 with four touchdown passes. Meanwhile, Derek Carr was 19 for 30 with two touchdown passes. Neither player had an interception in the game.

Josh Jacobs stood out as the most effective rusher in the game. He ran for an impressive 154 yards. Adams received 124 yards and seems to be out of the slump that characterized the early weeks of the season. Adams also had two touchdowns in the game.

What’s next for both teams?

The Raiders now approach a soft part of their schedule. With the Houston Texans up next, Las Vegas will likely be favorites in Week 7 after their bye week. The Chiefs’ next game will be against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6, an NFL blockbuster match-up at this point in the season.
