Kelce sets MNF record as Mahomes leads Chiefs in miracle comeback over Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Las Vegas Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium as tight end Travis Kelce set a Monday Night Football record with four touchdown receptions.

Kansas City went scoreless in the first quarter and trailed Las Vegas by 17 points in the second frame before the Patrick Mahomes show started.

Kelce, 33, scored his first touchdown of the night prior to halftime, with the Chiefs heading into the break down 10-20.

Mahomes, 27, is now 8-1 in his career against the Raiders, this time throwing for 292 yards and four TDs on 29-for-43 completions.

Kelce scored his second touchdown to open the second half and get Kansas City within three on the scoreboard.

The Chiefs tight end completed a hat-trick down the stretch of the third quarter to give his side their first lead of the night.

Travis Kelce has his greatest performance ever

With the score at 23-24 in favor of Kansas City, a defensive holding penalty on a field goal attempt by the Chiefs gave Mahomes an automatic first down.

Not long after, Kelce set a new career-high for touchdown receptions (4) in a single game.

Kelce's fourth TD catch also set a new Monday Night Football record for most catches in a single game by one receiver.

He also tied the franchise record for most catches in one single game and did the same with the league's tight end record.

Mahomes and Kelce are must-watch television and should always be on primetime, but the Raiders gave them a run for their money.

Davante Adams scores two impressive TDs

After a missed two-point conversion on Kelce's fourth score, Las Vegas wide receiver Davante Adams answered with his second touchdown of the night to make it 29-30 in favor of Kansas City.

Instead of tying the score with less than five minutes left in the final stanza, Las Vegas missed a two-point conversion.

Adams, 29, was visibly frustrated at the end of the game after the Raiders failed to get within field goal range on their final drive of the night.

He finished the game with two touchdowns, the first one was a 58-yard reception and the second was 10 yards less impressive.

Raiders move to 1-4 with the loss ahead of Sunday's match against the Houston Texans (1-3-1), who just got their first win this week.

Miracle comeback nearly spoiled by questionable call

This marks the biggest regular season comeback in Mahomes' career, but it could have been spoiled.

Should the Chiefs not have won, the story would have been a questionable roughing the passer call on Kansas City defensive tackle Chris Jones.

Jones, 28, sacked Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and was penalized for roughing the passer.

Officials claimed Jones let all his body weight fall on top of Carr, though the defensive tackle clearly tried to stop the impact upon hitting the ground.

Chiefs move to 4-1 after the exciting shootout against the Raiders and will look to get a three-game win streak going on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
