What a way for the Kansas City Chiefs to lose. The Oakland Raiders win, 31-30. This game had a little bit of everything, including one of the wildest endings I remember. The Raiders thought they won with a long touchdown pass to Jared Cook then the Chiefs thought they won - a few times - before the Raiders threw the game winner with no time left.
The ending was insane.
The Raiders threw what they thought was a 29-yard touchdown pass to Jared Cook with 16 seconds left. However, the refs ruled that Cook was not in yet and that he was down a half yard short. So there was a 10-second run-off and with 8 seconds left they got it back.
They threw a touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree BUT offensive pass interference was called. They threw an incomplete pass over the middle but it was defensive holding. The same call to Eric Murray on the next play and another shot at it.
Carr then hit Crabtree two yards out for the win. Killer game for the Chiefs to lose.
The Chiefs lose their second straight game and move to 5-2 on the season.

There was that guy who used to be good
Raiders WR Amari Cooper had 146 yards on the season coming into this game. He had more yards than that tonight! He put up two first half touchdowns on the Chiefs (partially thanks to a pass interference non-call).
Amari Cooper: 19 targets, 11 receptions, 210 yards, 2 TDs. #KCvsOAK— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) October 20, 2017
There was payback for the tipped pass touchdown
First it was the Eagles’ Zach Ertz getting a tipped pass on the Chiefs and almost scoring. Then it was Antonio Brown with the killer touchdown last week on the tipped pass.
It was about time the tipped pass went the Chiefs way.
There was a fight
Marcus Peters hit Derek Carr late, the Raiders got upset about it and they all started pushing and shoving. With the Raiders offensive line staring down Peters, Marshawn Lynch came running in from the sidelines to get Peters out of there.
There were some bad calls
The refs missed some calls:
- Offensive pass interference non-call on Amari Cooper which resulted in a Raiders touchdown.
- Phantom illegal contact call on Eric Murray which negated a Chiefs turnover.
- Missed facemask from Marquette King on Tyreek Hill.
