Best Twitter reactions from Chiefs’ Week 14 victory over Raiders
It was a rout Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium with the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14. The Chiefs controlled the entire game from the opening snap turnover and score to the final whistle in the demolition of their most bitter AFC West rival.
Here’s a quick look at some of the best reactions from the game posted on Twitter:
Jarran Reed strips the ball from Josh Jacobs leading to Mike Hughes touchdown

The Chiefs’ defense answered the Raiders’ pregame taunting by forcing a turnover and getting the scoring started themselves. Jarran Reed was credited with the forced fumble, already his second of the season. Mike Hughes has his first career recovery and second career defensive touchdown with the scoop and score. The electric start caught the attention of many on Twitter, chiming in with their thoughts.
This is so awesome, Goldsboro native Jarran Reed forces the fumble and the New Bern native Mike Hughes recovers the fumble and scores a touchdown for the Chiefs on the first defensive play of the game!! THE 252 BOYS BABY!!! 💪🏻💪🏻 @nbhsbears @NBbearsFB @GoldsboroFball @GHS_Cougars https://t.co/vLAQ2ayULI

The rise of Frank Clark back to his Pro Bowl form has been a welcome sight for Chiefs fans recently. The former All-Pro defensive lineman combined with Tershawn Wharton for a first-half sack while missing out on another due to a holding penalty. Carr was pressured often by Clark, and it didn’t go unnoticed by the spectators on Twitter.

Josh Gordon flashes into the end zone off the quick screen, and he's got his first score as a Chief. 28-0 Chiefs, 6:17 left in the first. Oh, the humanity.

The connection between Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill has become legendary in the NFL as they added another highlight to their reel. On a third-and-17, Mahomes managed to scramble and create enough time for Hill to get open and complete an exciting 38-yard reception. Fans on Twitter expressed their enjoyment immediately following the play.
Patrick Mahomes to Tyreek Hill across the field for 38 yards. Ridiculous video game type stuff LMAO! pic.twitter.com/3nrlx2bMVU

Patrick Mahomes just launching the ball for some more yardage. Huge bomb to Tyreek Hill on 3rd and 17, and the Chiefs are threatening again
— Matt Verderame (@MattVerderame) December 12, 2021
Oh my Lord. That was truly pathetic. Mahomes rolls out left, has all day to reset, and finds Tyreek Hill open deep with #Raiders defenders nowhere near him.
