Chiefs vs. Raiders: Live updates, game stats, highlights, and analysis for Saturday’s Week 18 game

The Kansas City Chiefs are doing their part to secure a top seed in the AFC, and lead the Las Vegas Raiders 24-3 at halftime. Patrick Mahomes is 14-of-17 for 175 yards in the first half while rushing for 16 yards, Which gives him the most yards in a single season in NFL history. Mahomes has surpassed Drew Brees for the all-time mark (Brees had 5,562 in 2011).

Travis Kelce is also 96 yards short of his own single-season passing record for receiving yards for tight ends (1,416). Kelsey had three catches for 21 yards in the first half.

The Chiefs started early with a 67-yard pass from Mahomes to Justin Watson on the second play of the game. Mahomes found McKinnon scored a few runs two yards later to give Kansas City a 7-0 lead with only 2:02 left in the game. Kadarius Toney capped off a 98-yard drive with an 11-yard touchdown run to build Kansas City’s lead to 21-3 with 49 seconds left in the first half. Tony leads the Chiefs with 26 rushing yards. Ronald Jones also had a score from two yards in the first half for Kansas.

The Raiders also have some milestones to play for, as Josh Jacobs could become the first Raiders player to win a rushing league title since Marcus Allen in 1985. Davante Adams is 11 catches shy of breaking the franchise record for receptions (Darren Waller caught 107 in 2020. ) and two receiving touchdowns shy of tying the franchise receiving touchdown record (Art Powell had 16 in 1963). Adams has two catches for 21 yards in the first half while Jacobs has 10 carries for 20 yards.
