Much of Sunday night’s game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs was close, and the Raiders were even up 31-28 inside the final two minutes. For a moment, it looked like the Raiders (who handed the Chiefs their only loss of this season with a road win on Oct. 11) might hang on for the victory. But then, Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes (the Super Bowl LIV MVP, the 2018 NFL MVP, and the owner of a NFL record contract) produced yet another ridiculous string of highlights, starting at his own 25 with 1:43 left and leading a seven-play, 75-yard drive that was capped with a touchdown throw to a wide-open Travis Kelce:

The Raiders did get the ball back after that, but with only 28 seconds left. And Derek Carr’s first pass was picked off, giving the Chiefs the chance to kneel down for the win. But they were able to do that thanks to this great late drive from Mahomes, who finished with 34 completions on 45 attempts (75.6 percent) for 348 yards and two touchdowns (with one interception). He continues to find ways to impress each week.
