Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs limit mistakes as offense purrs

The Kansas City Chiefs have been struggling to find their offensive rhythm this season, but they showed signs of life in a 31-17 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

The Chiefs were able to limit their mistakes and get the ball to their playmakers, resulting in their second-highest point total of the season.

Mahomes said after the game. "Little things like that, they've kind of stalled some of our drives. We kind of got back to the fundamentals this week and we kept pressing and pushing. We obviously took a step in the positive direction now."

Mahomes threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns, and he also ran for a score. He was intercepted once, but it was his first interception in four games.


"I think we're just getting more and more comfortable with each other," Mahomes said. "We're starting to understand how each other plays, and we're starting to make plays when it matters."

The Chiefs' running game was also effective, with Jerick McKinnon rushing for 53 yards and a touchdown. Clyde Edwards-Helaire added 44 yards rushing.

The Raiders were able to score 17 points in the fourth quarter, but it was too little too late. Derek Carr threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns, but he was also intercepted twice.

The Chiefs will play the Denver Broncos next week. The Raiders will play the Los Angeles Chargers next week.
