In order to secure the AFC West division and maintain their pursuit of the top seed in the AFC, the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs went into their matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday.
However, the Chiefs' bad run continued on Christmas Day as they lost 20-14 at Arrowhead Stadium to the Las Vegas Raiders.
In the second quarter, Raiders cornerback Jack Jones intercepted a ball intended for Patrick Mahomes and returned it for a touchdown.
Despite having trouble scoring for much of the game, the Chiefs offense eventually scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter to reduce the lead to six points.
The great quarterback for Kansas City is still confident that the Chiefs are going to succeed despite their current bad run.
Following the game, Mahomes told ESPN, "I still believe that we can go do what we want to do".
The two-time NFL MVP admitted that his club hasn't always been consistent this year.
"You catch hints of it. You catch a few moments of us kicking the football. You catch a few moments where we score in the red zone.
