Mahomes threw just his second interception of the season late on in the first half, but Kansas City took a 21-17 lead with a 16-play, 93-yard scoring drive to open the second – Edwards-Helaire in for his second score with a 14-yard run.
Las Vegas responded with an 11-play, 75-yard drive of their own, regaining the lead when Carr hit a wide-open Darren Waller in the back of the endzone from three yards out.
After both teams traded three-and-outs, the Chiefs put together their second 90-plus-yard drive of the game, this one covering 91 yards in 12 plays and finished off by Le’Veon Bell, to see the Chiefs ahead 28-24.
Carr would again see the Raiders in front, throwing his third touchdown of the game but, after Mahomes’ late heroics, he’d be picked off in the final few seconds to clinch victory for Kansas City.
