The Chiefs showed up, but the Raiders didn't.
Even with two straight wins, not everything has been sunshine and sprinkles for the Kansas City Chiefs. The performance allowed the Chiefs (8-4) to take a commanding two-game lead in the division with four games to play (with a sweep of the Raiders, giving them the head-to-head tiebreaker).
The Oakland Raiders had their three-game win streak snapped last weekend in a disappointing 34-3 loss to the New York Jets.
Mahomes might not have played well in either of those games, but the most important thing is that the Kansas City Chiefs went 2-0 in both match-ups.
In the second quarter, Davis was again involved when he was taken down on a fourth-down attempt.
Carr, 28, in the losing effort yesterday to division rival Chiefs, threw 20/30 for 222 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and one fumble.
Despite having one of the best offenses in the league and a surprisingly competent defense, the Chiefs have not been able to consistently put games out of reach. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 15 of 29 passes for 175 yards, his career low as a starter, and a touchdown with an interception for a 81.8 passer rating.
While rookie running back Josh Jacobs rushed for 104 yards on 17 carries, the Raiders quickly became a one-dimensional offense because of the Chiefs' big lead.
The Chiefs didn't need Patrick Mahomes to perform at an MVP level to win this one, especially playing in sub-40 degree temperatures with winds over 30 miles per hour.
