FINAL: Chiefs 40, Raiders 33.
- Chiefs hold on and improve their record to 10-2, while the Raiders drop to 2-10.
- The Raiders try and close in on the Chiefs with a 44-yard field goal from Carlson with just 30 seconds left in the game. Chiefs lead by one touchdown, 40-33.
- The Mahomes to Kelce combination comes up big as the Chiefs lead by just three points and Mahomes find Kelce for a necessary 25 yards to put the Chiefs at the Oakland 4. The Chiefs regain a more comfortable 10-point lead with under 2 minutes to play after Mahomes finds Conley for a 2-yard touchdown. The extra point is good and the Chiefs lead 40-30.
12 for 168 and TDs is arguably the best game of Kelce's career. Statistically it is— Cody Tapp (@codybtapp) December 3, 2018
- The Raider’s start at their 46 on the next drive capitalize big time, making it a three point game with a 9-yard touchdown pass from Carr to Ateman. The drive saw 6 plays for 37 yards and lasted 2:32. Chiefs 33, Raiders 30.
- The Chiefs don't see such luck on their next drive. Conley picks up a 9-yard Offensive Holding penalty on the second play and Mahomes throws back-to-back incomplete passes intended for Conley. Kansas City ends the drive with a punt from Colquitt for 45-yards to the Oakland 46.
- The Raiders come out strong to do everything they can to keep themselves in this game. On the opening drive of the fourth quarter, they go for 75 yards over 10 plays and 4:23. The drive ends with Jalen Richard rushing for 16 yards to get the Raiders to the KC 3, then Doug Martin rushing for 2 to get it to the KC 1. Now flirting with the end zone, Carr finds Lee Smith for a 1-yard TD. Chiefs 33, Raiders 23.

- After picking up 11 yards on the first two plays of the next drive, Mahomes overthrows Tyreek Hill and then Chris Conley. Redemption almost comes soon after when Mahomes finds Travis Kelce, who, makes the catch, but is down by contact on the 13-yard-line. Kelce gets back on his feet and runs it in for a TD, but it’s brought back. That doesn’t slow down he Chiefs, though, and Mahomes finds Demetrius Harris with a fast ball on the run for a 13-yard TD — his 40th of the season — that is good. Butker hits the extra point and the Chiefs lead 33-16.
- Chiefs come out shaky on their next drive and pick up their first 3-and-out of the day. Dustin Colquitt punts and the ball is back in the Raiders possession as they trail by just 10 points with less than 2:30 to go.
- A look on the play from Carr to Cook that resulted in a Raiders TD:
- After picking up a quick 49-yards in their first 6 plays of their next drive, Derek Carr and the Raiders respond quickly on play seven with a 24-yard touchdown from Carr to Jared Cook, who beats Anthony Hitchens. Raiders go for the extra two, but fail. Chiefs lead by 10 points 26-16.
- And Anthony Hitchens will re-enter the game for the Chiefs:

- On the second play of the drive, Patrick Mahomes looks to Tyreek Hill up the middle. The deflects off of the hands of Raiders defender, Tahir Whitehead, but still ends up in Hill’s hands anyway for a 13-yard gain. The Chiefs pick up another 13 yards after Spencer Ware shuffles around 2 defenders to get into Oakland territory with a strong 13-yard run to put the Chiefs at the Oakland 46. Andy Reid’s playbook proves magical yet again this season after a cheeky fake on fourth down allows Spencer Ware to drive the ball for a 1-yard TD up the middle. Chiefs could make it a three possession game by going for two, but opt for the extra point. Chiefs lead 26-10 over the Raiders.

- Harrison Butker kicks 65 yards from the KC 35 to the end zone. The Raiders open the second half strong after Jalen Richard comes up big on back-to-back plays — the first for 8 yards to get the first down and, on the next, Richard takes off on a 30 yard run, his longest of the year, to the KC 34. Derek Carr gets taken down by Dee Ford for the second time this game at 12:04 and the Raiders finish the drive with a 50-yard field goal attempt that’s good from Daniel Carlson. Chiefs 19, Raiders 10.
- The Chiefs waste no time, and are able to extend their lead before the second half with an 82 yard drive over just 57 seconds. Mahomes and Travis Kelce start strong by combining for 30 yards, then, on the next play, Mahomes hits Demarcus Robinson for 38 yards at the Oakland 6. Within striking distance, and less than 10 seconds to go, Mahomes finds Kelce again for a 6-yard touchdown. The extra point is good and Chiefs lead 19-7 going into halftime.
- The Raiders finally get on the board on their last drive of the half, which was 75 yards, lasted 5:58 and saw 11 plays. The drive ended with a scuffle between Eric Murray and Jared Cook, which resulted in two Unsportsmanlike penalties, which were offset. At 2nd & goal at the KC 1 Doug Martin runs it in for a 1-yard touchdown. The extra point is good and the Chiefs lead 13-7 with about a minute remaining in the half.
- Mahomes and Kelce combine for 29-yards on the next drive to get the Chiefs to the KC 39. On first down, Damien Williams runs it for 3 yards to the Oakland 33. Mahomes, looking to get into the end zone or close, runs his way out of pressure, then hits Demetrius Harris for 14 yards at the Oakland 7. However, Mahomes is over the line of scrimmage and is called for a Illegal Forward Pass (5-yard penalty). Chiefs go for the field goal and Harrison Butker lines up for a 50-yard attempt and makes it, extending the Chiefs lead. Chiefs 13, Raiders 0.
- Chiefs waste no time taking back over in the second quarter. After picking up 11-yards, Jarvis Jenkins forces the Raiders’ DeAndre Washington to fumble and Dorian O’Daniel recovers to give the Chiefs the ball at their own 30 (1st & 10)
- Oakland ends the first quarter in Kansas City territory after a 12-yard pass from Derek Carr finds Jared Cook at the 39.
- Stat correction: Dee Ford is just shy of tying his career high of 10 sacks:

- The Chiefs start the next drive strong after Mahomes finds Demetrius Harris for 10-yards at the KC 24. The Chiefs, however, only gain 3 yards after that and end with a punt. The Raiders offense regains possession with 1:28 left in the first quarter.
- Strange start to the next offensive drive for the Raiders. The Chiefs punt it and pick up a questionable Kickoff Out of Bounds penalty. Oakland benefits and starts at the 40. On the third play, Derek Carr finds Jordy Nelson for 3-yards and Nelson comes up big in getting the ball to the 50 for the Raiders. The drive ends soon after for Oakland after Dee Ford tallies his 10th sack of 2018 on Derek Carr — Carr’s 36th sack this season — forcing Oakland to punt. Chiefs keep their 10-0 lead.
- Spencer Ware gets his first carry of the game on Kansas City’s next drive for 2-yards. Then, two plays later, Ware runs it again, this time for 18-yards. Mahomes and the Chiefs just can’t seem to give themselves a good chance in the end zone, and the Chiefs go for a 28-yard field goal to extend the lead and it’s good. Chiefs 10, Raiders 0.
- On the Raiders first play following a Kansas City touchdown, Derek Carr hits Jordy Nelson for 24-yards. Carr picks up 8 yards of his own before getting forced out by Steven Nelson. Allen Bailey forces Doug Martin to fumble and it’s recovered by Justin Houston at the Oakland 49.
- The Chiefs offense takes the field and, on their first play, Mahomes passes off to Tyreek Hill who turns on the jets and runs it 33-yards into the Oakland 32. On the next play, Oakland picks up a huge 26-yard penalty for Defensive Pass Interference called on Nick Nelson for a play on Chris Conley — putting the Chiefs within striking distance. Mahomes finds Kelce for a 3-yard touchdown and Harrison Butker knocks it home for the extra point to give the Chiefs an early lead. Chiefs 7, Raiders 0.
- Raiders get into the Chiefs territory, but Offensive Holding is called on former Chief Rodney Hudson for 10-yards and Oakland is forced to punt. Johnny Townsend punts 22-yards to the KC 35 and the balls out of bounds.
- On the Chiefs first play of the game, Patrick Mahomes hits Travis Kelce for 36-yards, but Kelce fumbles at the Raiders 42 and the ball is recovered by Nick Nelson. Oakland takes over possession.
