Derek Carr outplayed Patrick Mahomes to exorcise his Arrowhead Stadium demons, and the Las Vegas Raiders ended a seven-game losing streak in Kansas City to give the Super Bowl champion Chiefs their first loss since Nov. 10 with a 40-32 upset win Sunday.
The Raiders improved to 3-2 as they enter their bye week, while the Chiefs, who were 11-point favorites, fell to 4-1.
“I’ve taken a lot of sad walks up that ramp,” Carr said. “But not today. I’m going to enjoy this one.”
Carr, who entered the game having lost all six of his career games at Kansas City by an average of 17 points, engineered an efficient, ball-control offense that showed just enough explosiveness to keep the Chiefs honest … and off the field. Carr completed 22 of 31 passes for 347 yards with three touchdowns and an interception for a passer rating of 126.7. Carr, who also had two key fourth-down QB sneaks to convert first downs, became the first Raiders quarterback to throw for at least 300 yards at Arrowhead Stadium since Rich Gannon passed for 334 there in a 20-10 loss on Oct. 27, 2002.
