Raiders strike for several big plays in 40-32 win at Kansas City
The Raiders’ 40-32 upset win at Arrowhead Stadium — their first win there in eight years — was powered by several big offensive plays.
Yes, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are usually the kings of the explosive offensive play. But on Sunday, Raiders’ quarterback Derek Carr and crew took over the highlight-reel plays and it’s a big reason why the Raider won.
Las Vegas had 15 plays of 15 yards or more Sunday. Kansas City had 11. Those four plays were a big part of the difference in the results.
Whether it was a 72-yard bomb from Carr to rookie receiver Henry Ruggs, a 59-yard touchdown pass from Carr to Nelson Agholor or a 43-yard run by Devontae Booker, the Raiders were extremely explosive Sunday. It was something to remember.
