MNF: Kelce Keys KC Comeback Over Raiders

Jonathan Grant | October 11th, 2022

Take a bow, Travis Kelce. The tight end was, by far, the most important player on the field on Monday Night Football this week, pushing the Kansas City Chiefs back from the brink of a potential upset against the Las Vegas Raiders at home. Kelce and co. (now 4-1 on the year) found themselves down by as many as 17 points (with less than 20 seconds to go in the first half) and were down 20-10 at the break, but they didn’t quit.

Kelce made four touchdown grabs, three of which came in the second half of the contest, giving his team a 30-29 victory as well as breaking a record in the process. It was the most TD’s he had ever scored in a game. It just seemed inevitable for the fourth one that it was going to happen. Patrick Mahomes, the man getting him the ball, threw for four TD’s and just eight yards shy of 300 as he went 29-43. Derek Carr, on the opposite side, completed 19 of 30 passes for 241 yards and two TD’s, but the Raiders (now just 1-4) had to settle for a depressing loss. Josh Jacobs was impressive on the ground in defeat, rushing for 154 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.
