Chiefs vs. Raiders score: Live updates, game stats, highlights, NFL live stream for ‘Monday Night Football’


Through two quarters at Arrowhead Stadium, the Las Vegas Raiders are leading, 20-10, over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs offense has been struggling, while the Raiders have brought consistent pressure on quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Both defenses came out strong, with both offenses going three-and-out on their first possessions, but things quickly shifted in favor of the away team.

On the Raiders’ second possession, it looked like it might be more of the same, faced with a fourth-and-1 situation on their own 42-yard line. They took a gamble by going for it and the risk paid off, resulting in a 58-yard touchdown from quarterback Derek Carr to receiver Davante Adams.

The Chiefs followed up by marching down the field with some explosive runs from Mahomes. A third-down sack forced the Chiefs to attempt a field goal. Matthew Wright’s kick was wide right, keeping the home team scoreless.

The Raiders extended their lead with a one-yard rush from Josh Jacobs, set up by two defensive pass interference calls on the Chiefs.

Mahomes typically excels at home and in prime time, but the Raiders defense has the Chiefs offense figured out thus far. Carr is looking comfortable and is playing like he has something to prove, because he does. Another loss would elevate the worry over Vegas’ season.

Midway through the second quarter, Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson made it a three-possession game with a 53-yard field goal.

The Chiefs offense finally started rolling towards the end of the second quarter and capped off a solid drive with Mahomes going to his reliable tight end Travis Kelce for the touchdown.

On the final Raiders drive of the half, a controversial roughing the passer call on the Chiefs took away a fumble forced and recovered by Kansas City defensive tackle Chris Jones, leaving the crowd and many at home upset at the referee’s decision. What would have been a fumble recovered by Jones turned into a first down for the Raiders, eventually setting up a field goal.

The call was so controversial that even long after the penalty, the crowd was booing and yelling towards the referees.

The Chiefs were then left with just 13 seconds left, down 20-7. Wright made it a 10-point game as time expired in the half with a 59-yard field goal.
