OAKLAND -- Despite falling into an immediate 10-0 hole, the Chiefs departed Oakland with a thoroughly dominant 28-10 win over the Raiders to improve to 2-0 and cement their position atop the AFC West.
Patrick Mahomes threw for 443 yards and four touchdowns without his starting left tackle Eric Fisher, who left the game in the first quarter with a groin injury, and his top receiver Tyreek Hill, who remains out with the shoulder injury he sustained a week ago. Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman combined for 233 yards and three touchdowns. And the Chiefs' defense stymied the Raiders' offense after allowing 10 points on their first two possessions.
The game was won and lost in the second quarter, when Mahomes threw for 278 yards and four touchdowns. The Chiefs scored touchdowns on all four of their drives in the second quarter, putting the game away before halftime.
