The Kansas City Chiefs rallied from a 17-0 first-half deficit to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders 30-29 on Monday Night Football. The win moves the Chiefs to a 4-1 and in first place in the AFC West.


Offensive spotlight: It was a historic night for tight end Travis Kelce in the receiving game, as he snagged eight of his nine targets for four first downs and a career-high four touchdowns in primetime action. The nine-year veteran caught all eight of his catchable opportunities and forced three missed tackles despite only having 35 yards receiving.

Defensive spotlight: A 90.6 pass-rushing grade on first review from defensive tackle Chris Jones was just the prelude to his dominant interior performance. Six total pressures, four hurries, a quarterback hit and sack was his definitive statline that summarized his dominant Week 5 campaign.

Rookie spotlight: Skyy Moore recorded just two receptions for only 11 yards in only his second consecutive multi-target NFL performance. Both late fourth-quarter receiving grabs defined a middling 62.3 receiving grade for the second-round selection.

Offensive line spotlight: Andrew Wylie had a nightmarish outing versus Raiders' star pass-rusher Maxx Crosby. The fifth-year veteran allowed four total pressures, two hurries and two sacks of Patrick Mahomes to help complete a woeful 53.4 pass-blocking grade.
