Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes throws TD pass to Darrel Williams for early lead vs. Raiders
The Kansas City Chiefs are without Damien Williams in Sunday’s game but it was another Williams who scored the team’s first touchdown. Following an interception from Tyrann Mathieu, Patrick Mahomes threw a touchdown pass to Darrel Williams to take an early lead over the Oakland Raiders.

When Williams caught the pass, it appeared that he would have little to no chance of finding the end zone with the number of defenders pursuing him. However, the second-year running back was able to outpace the defenders to the pylon for six points.
By rumbling his way into the end zone, Williams now has four total touchdowns on the season (first receiving touchdown). In addition, it is only the second receiving touchdown of his young career.
The Chiefs are in desperate need of finding a running back who can consistently handle the workload. If Williams is able to continue making plays on the ground and through the air, he could earn more snaps in the offense down the stretch.
