Raiders’ defense shuts down Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs in second half of upset win

Maxx Crosby wanted to feel elated as Jeff Heath returned a Patrick Mahomes interception 47 yards Sunday to help seal the Raiders’ upset win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

He couldn’t.

“I was so tired I couldn’t move my legs at that point,” Crosby said in a video teleconference following a 40-32 win at Arrowhead Stadium.

With good reason. The Chiefs have had the NFL’s most explosive offense in the NFL since Mahomes took over at quarterback, and the effort it takes to keep him in check is exhausting for everyone involved.
