Final score: Raiders upset Chiefs, win 40-32 at Arrowhead Stadium

The Raiders were 12-point underdogs traveling to Kansas City on Sunday. They came away with the win.

The talk out of Las Vegas all week was that for the Kansas City Chiefs to be a true rival, the Raiders had to win. They backed up their words Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, defeating the Chiefs 40-32 to deal them their first loss of the 2020 season — and their first loss, period, since November 10, 2019.

Remarkably, there were times early that it felt as though the Chiefs might handily defeat the Raiders. Bashaud Breeland — starting in his first game off a four-game suspension — intercepted Derek Carr late in the first quarter. Immediately following the turnover, the Chiefs took a 14-3 lead by way of a 10-yard run by Tyreek Hill out of the backfield. Later in the second quarter, the Chiefs went up 21-10 on a broken play in which Patrick Mahomes found Sammy Waktins for an 8-yard score.

But Carr and company would not go away. The Raiders quarterback attacked Chiefs cornerback Charvarius Ward on pair of deep balls: a 59-yard touchdown pass to Nelson Agholor and a 72-yard touchdown to rookie Henry Ruggs. The scoring plays sandwiched a 5-yard touchdown pass to Darren Waller.

Harrison Butker tied the game when his 32-yard field goal was good with less than a minute to go in the second quarter. It was 24-24 at the half, and Rashad Fenton replaced Ward to begin the third quarter.

After a second quarter that saw five touchdowns between the teams, neither team scored in the third.

The key moment for the Raiders came with the game tied at 24 in the fourth quarter.

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden kept the offense on the field for a fourth-and-1 try at the Kansas City 16-yard line. Carr converted for the first down on a sneak, and two plays later, running back Josh Jacobs ran seven yards for the touchdown. Kicker Daniel Carlson missed the extra point, so the Raiders only went up six points, 30-24. Carlson hit a 43-yarder on the next possession to extend the lead to 33-24.

Then, Mahomes threw his first interception of the season into the hands of safety Jeff Heath. The next play, Jacobs ran it two yards for the touchdown and 40-24 lead. Mahomes was hardly comfortable on the day, as the Raiders hit him five times, recording 3.0 sacks.

Mahomes connected on a 7-yard passing touchdown to Travis Kelce and a two-point conversion to running back Darrel Williams to cut the game to one possession, but Jacobs wore down the Chiefs on the final drive to run out the clock.

Carr outplayed Mahomes, going 22 of 31 for 347 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Mahomes was 22 of 43 for 340 yards, three total touchdowns and the pick.


Injuries

  • Left guard Kelechi Osemele exited the game in the first quarter on what looked to be a pair of non-contact knee injuries. Mike Remmers replaced him.
  • Wide receiver Sammy Watkins hurt his hamstring during the second quarter.
  • Linebacker Anthony Hitchens left the game at different points due to a hand injury.

Special teams

  • After some shaky play the last two week, kicker Harrison Butker was good from 32, and he made all his extra points.
