Cowboys, WFT and Giants all have three wins, half-game behind Eagles:
By Harvey Hoffman
Patrick Mahomes’ 22-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce with 28 seconds to play lifted the visiting Kansas City Chiefs to a 35-31 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Mahomes passed for 348 yards and led two go-ahead scoring drives in the frantic fourth quarter for the defending Super Bowl champions, who split their season series with Las Vegas (6-4) in dramatic fashion.
Kelce caught eight passes for 127 yards for the Chiefs (9-1), who are in firm control of the race for their fifth straight AFC West title – but only after another comeback led by their Super Bowl MVP, who rebounded impressively from his second interception of the season late in the first half.
“I’d take him over everybody,” Kansas City coach Andy Reid said of Mahomes. “And I’m lucky to have him, as we are as a football team, as we are as a city. When you’re behind, he can make things happen.”
