A look at the studs and duds from the Chiefs close win over the Raiders in Week 11.
Week 11 was one to remember. The Kansas City Chiefs held off a very impressive attempt by the Las Vegas Raiders to sweep the season series on Sunday night in a game that lived up to any advance billing. In short, the AFC West looks competitive once again, and there’s more fuel on the fire of the Raiders-Chiefs rivalry than there has been in years.
As we look back upon a memorable win for the Chiefs—their ninth on the season—we wanted to look at the studs and duds from Week 11.
Stud: Patrick Mahomes
With a makeshift offensive line and multiple receivers sidelined, the Chiefs offense continues to be an unstoppable force, all thanks to the arm and vision of Patrick Mahomes, the best quarterback in the NFL.
After already putting up 28 points, Mahomes took the Chiefs the length of the field in just over one minute on a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter on the road in Las Vegas. It was a magical drive that required ideal vision, accuracy, and timing and Mahomes made it all look so easy. Check out the game-winning play one-more time for a reminder of just how good Mahomes was on the throw to Travis Kelce in the end zone.
It’s uncertain as to whether or not Mahomes will end up with the sort of final stat line that would give him his second MVP trophy in three seasons, but he’s definitely in the conversation. With plays just like this, he’s building a body of evidence that he’s still not done surprising us all.
