9/15/19 OAKLAND, CA - The Oakland Raiders were looking to go up (2-0) in the AFC West, but the Kansas City Chiefs offense exploded in the second quarter to help defeat the Raiders 28-10.

The Raiders defense had no answer for Mahomes, found another receiver tight-end Travis Kelce open for a 27-yard touchdown catch now led the Raiders 21-10.

The final dagger for the Raiders still in the second quarter came when Mahomes threw his fourth touchdown of the night to Robinson on a 39-touchdown catch, his second of the night as the Raiders were down 28-10 going into halftime.

Late in the third quarter, Carr had the Raiders in scoring position inside the Chiefs' 10-yard line, threw a slant pass into the endzone but his receiver never broke to the inside and was pick-off in the endzone by the Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland.

Kansas City with the win improved their record to (2-0) and Oakland fell to (1-1). The Raiders' next game will be in Minnesota to take on the Vikings.
