10 Quick Facts About the Chiefs' Week 12 Victory Over Las Vegas | Upon Further Review

Here are some quick notes from the Chiefs’ victory over the Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs rallied to defeat the Las Vegas Raiders, 31-17, at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Here are some quick notes from the victory.

1. Andy Reid is now the winningest head coach in Chiefs franchise history.

Reid recorded his 125th regular-season victory with Kansas City on Sunday, moving him past Hank Stram for the most wins in franchise history. Reid – who is also the winningest head coach in Philadelphia Eagles' history – is the only head coach in NFL history to own the most all-time wins for multiple franchises.

2. After falling behind by 14 points, Kansas City outscored Las Vegas by a mark of 31-3.

There was a point on Sunday where the Chiefs had only 13 offensive yards to their name while the Raiders had 14 points, but that all changed in a hurry as Kansas City rallied to outscore Las Vegas by 28 points the rest of the way.

Since 2018, Kansas City has won 63 percent of its regular-season games in which it trailed at some point during the contest. That's more than 10 percentage points ahead of the next closest team, Green Bay, which has won 51 percent of such games. Additionally, quarterback Patrick Mahomes has led the Chiefs to victory on 15 different occasions (including the playoffs) in which Kansas City trailed by double-digits. Remarkably, Mahomes is 15-11 in those situations during his career.

Additionally, Sunday's comeback was the third-largest of Mahomes' career.

3. Rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice had a game to remember.

Rice caught eight passes for 107 yards – both season-bests – while also finding the end zone for the fifth time this season on Sunday. He made plays in big moments, too, hauling in a 10-yard grab that moved the chains on third down on the Chiefs' first scoring drive before catching a 19-yard pass that set up Kansas City's go-ahead touchdown a bit later.

His biggest contribution took place on third down early in the fourth quarter, however, when Rice caught a short pass over the middle and turned on the jets for a 39-yard touchdown. The score matched the biggest play of Rice's young career and effectively put the game away.

Rice is tied for the third-most receiving touchdowns (5) among all rookies this season.

4. The Chiefs' defense held the opposition under 25 total points for the 11th consecutive game.

After falling behind by 14 points on Sunday, the Chiefs' defense went on to hold Las Vegas to only 137 yards of offense and seven first downs. One major factor behind that defensive resurgence was the Chiefs' ability to handle the Raiders' running game, which gained only 30 yards on 11 attempts following Las Vegas' first three possessions.

Kansas City remains the only team in the NFL to hold the opposition under 25 total points in every game this season, marking the first time since 2013 that a team began a season with 11 consecutive games of that nature. The Carolina Panthers, who began the 2013 campaign with 12 such games, were the last team to do so. It's the longest such streak to start a season for Kansas City since 1991.

5. Tailback Isiah Pacheco recorded the first multi-touchdown game of his career.

Pacheco tallied 89 yards from scrimmage on Sunday, recording 55 rushing yards and 34 receiving yards. He also found the end zone twice, marking the first multi-touchdown game of his young career.

The second-year running back now has 865 yards from scrimmage on the season, which ranks 13th among all running backs.

6. Tight end Travis Kelce reached another personal milestone.

Kelce caught six passes for 91 yards on Sunday, surpassing the 11,000-yard mark for his brilliant career in the process. Kelce is the fastest tight end in NFL history to reach that milestone, doing so in just 154 games. He's the 17th-fastest player to reach that mark regardless of position.

The veteran tight end is the Chiefs' all-time leader in receiving yards (11,076) and scrimmage yards (11,090).

7. Defensive end George Karlaftis now has eight sacks on the season.

Karlaftis already has more sacks through 11 games (8) than he did in 17 games last season (6), and through Sunday's action, his 36 "quarterback hurries" rank sixth among all players.

The second-year edge rusher has a team-leading 47 total pressures on the season.

8. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is now 16-3 following a loss in his career.

The Chiefs are now 3-0 this season immediately following a loss, extending Patrick Mahomes' career record to 16-3 in those situations. In fact, Mahomes hasn't lost back-to-back games since early in the 2021 campaign.

The Chiefs are one of only two teams, joining the Dallas Cowboys, to not lose back-to-back games since the beginning of the 2022 season.

9. Kicker Harrison Butker remained perfect on the season.

Butker connected on his lone field goal attempt (a 32-yarder) and all four of his extra-point tries on Sunday, continuing his perfect start to the year. The veteran kicker has nailed all 20 of his field goal attempts and all 28 of his extra-point tries on the season.

Butker is the only kicker in the league yet to miss a kick of any kind, and he's just the 10th kicker in league history to remain perfect through their first 11 games of a season (min. 11 attempts).

10. The Chiefs maintained pace in the race for the top seed in the AFC.

The Chiefs are now 8-3 on the season, moving them within a half-game of the Baltimore Ravens for the top seed in the AFC. Kansas City has the same record as both Miami and Jacksonville, but the Chiefs own head-to-head tie-breakers over each.

The Chiefs also currently possess the tie-breaker over Baltimore (due to their conference record), so if Kansas City defeats Green Bay this upcoming Sunday, the Chiefs will move ahead of Baltimore (which is on a bye this week) for the top spot in the AFC.

It's all to say that as of this moment, Kansas City controls its own destiny moving forward.
