Six Quick Facts About the Chiefs' Week 5 Loss to Las Vegas | Upon Further Review

Here are some interesting stats and notes about the game

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped a tough one on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Las Vegas Raiders for their first loss since November of last year.

Here are six quick facts about the game.

1. Despite the loss, Travis Kelce continued to move his way up the record books.

Kelce caught eight passes for a team-leading 108 yards, matching Otis Taylor for the second-most 100-yard games in franchise history (20) and passing Shannon Sharpe for the sixth-most by a tight end in league history.

Only Tony Gonzalez (26) had more 100-yard games during his career with the Chiefs, and the 30-year-old Kelce still has plenty of big games ahead of him.

Additionally, Kelce moved past Dwayne Bowe for the second-most catches by any player in a Chiefs' uniform with 539.

2. Patrick Mahomes tossed a touchdown for the 15th-straight game.

The Chiefs fell short in the end, but Mahomes still put together a strong statistical performance with 340 passing yards and three total touchdowns. In fact, it marked Mahomes' 15th straight game with a scoring strike, which is the longest active streak in the NFL and matches Elvis Grbac for the longest stretch in franchise history.

It was also Mahomes' 20th career game with 300+ passing yards, which are the fourth-most for any player through four seasons in NFL history behind Kurt Warner (26), Dan Marino (22) and Andrew Luck (21).

3. Tyreek Hill was in the end zone yet again.

Hill took an end around for a 10-yard touchdown on Sunday, continuing his impressive start to the season that includes a score in all five games thus far. The speedy Hill is one of only three players to find the end zone in every game this season, joining Tampa Bay Buccaneers' wide receiver Mike Evans and Minnesota Vikings' tailback Dalvin Cook.

4. Bashaud Breeland wasted no time getting his hands on the football.

Breeland made a big play almost right away in his season debut, picking off Raiders' quarterback Derek Carr on the Chiefs' second defensive series.

The veteran cornerback put together a solid game in his return, allowing just one catch in 25 coverage snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.

5. Big plays and penalties ultimately hurt the Chiefs.

Las Vegas tallied seven plays that covered 20+ yards on Sunday, including two touchdowns.

Penalties also hurt the Chiefs, as they were hit with 10 flags for 94 yards.

6. The Raiders made some plays when it counted.

This one was all knotted up at 24 points apiece through the third quarter, but the Raiders made a couple of major plays when it counted to tilt the game in their favor.

Perhaps the biggest of those was on a third-and-18 deep in their own territory, when Carr found wide receiver Hunter Renfrow for 42 yards to move the chains. That set up a field goal that extended Las Vegas' lead to nine and proved to be the game-winning score in the end.

Kansas City still had a chance in the final moments though, as Mahomes found Kelce for a 7-yard touchdown before hitting tailback Darrel Williams on a successful two-point conversion attempt to bring the Chiefs within eight points, but Carr plunged ahead on fourth-and-one a drive later and ran out the clock.

It was a tough loss for Kansas City, bringing their franchise-record 13-game winning streak to an end, but they'll have a chance to turn things around this week with a matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
