The undefeated defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs headed into Week 5’s game against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders as 11.5-point favorites. No one was really giving Derek Carr and Co. much of a chance against Patrick Mahomes’ squad.

For a while there, it looked like Carr was going to struggle against a team that has given him fits throughout the career. But for some reason, things started to click for Las Vegas on offense.

That included this absolutely amazing catch from rookie receiver Henry Ruggs.

Carr also connected with former Philadelphia Eagles first-round bust Nelson Agholor for a touchdown ahead of halftime.

The game was ultimately tied at 24 in the half with Kansas City and Las Vegas having combined for 645 total yards in the first two quarters.

With Kansas City down 33-24 in the fourth quarter, Mahomes threw his first interception of the season into the hands of veteran Raiders safety Jeff Heath.

Vegas would score a touchdown on the very next play to take a 40-24 lead. While Kansas City did score a touchdown and add a two-point conversion, it was not enough for the team to fend off the upset.

The NFL world had its reactions to the crazy events at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
