Which Raiders star trolled Chiefs hard with perfect four-word message after win?

The Las Vegas Raiders’ journey started on a frustrating note as Tom Brady dashed down their offer to be a starter. Hence, they had to kick off the season with Jimmy Garoppolo. Nevertheless, while injuries and unimpressive stats prompted them to bench Garoppolo, rookie Aidan O’Connell shouldered the tough job and kept their playoff aspirations alive with a sound victory against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The victory added more enthusiasm for the Raiders team as they digested a hefty loss to the Chiefs just four weeks ago, leading the team’s star safety to add more fuel to the Chiefs’ wounds.

Raiders DB’s grinch tweet trolls Chiefs perfectly after the win

After the Las Vegas Raiders secured a remarkable 20-14 triumph over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Raiders’ locker room transformed into a hub of joy and celebration amid rough weather.

Safety Tre’von Moehrig added a touch of humor to the victory, sharing a cheeky post on social media, declaring, “Grinch stole Christmas mf,” shortly after the upset.

Moehrig wasn’t alone in embracing the Grinch theme. His teammate in the secondary, Jack Jones, initiated the festivities before the game concluded, showcasing his best Grinch impression. Jones intercepted a pass from Patrick Mahomes intended for Travis Kelce, resulting in a pick-six during the second quarter.

In the midst of celebrating, Jones appeared to contemplate gifting the touchdown ball to a fan in the stands. However, in a playful prank, he pulled the ball away at the last second, embodying the mischievous nature of the Grinch.

Undeterred by the earlier theatrics, Jones continued his Grinch-inspired antics on social media after the win. He posted a photoshopped image of himself as the infamous character, humorously symbolizing the “theft” of Christmas from Arrowhead.

The celebratory mood extended with Maxx Crosby live-streaming the Raiders’ locker room festivities on Instagram. The team reveled in their victory by smoking cigars and dancing to the beats of rapper Chief Keef, creating a memorable post-game celebration that reflected the Raiders’ triumphant spirit.

Raiders defense leads stunning Chiefs upset

The Raiders’ defensive line showcased an extraordinary performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16. The defensive prowess of Crosby, Koonce, and their teammates was on full display as they accumulated four sacks, seven tackles for loss, and consistently pressured Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes throughout the game.

The Raiders’ defensive brilliance wasn’t solely limited to disrupting Mahomes; they held the Chiefs’ running game at bay and tightly covered pass-catchers, creating a defensive masterpiece that stood out as one of the season’s best. The exceptional performance becomes even more commendable when considering the two defensive scores that further tilted the game in the Raiders’ favor.

Zamir White’s stellar contribution in place of the injured Josh Jacobs added another chapter to the Raiders’ success, as he amassed an impressive 145 yards on 22 carries. This collective effort on both sides of the ball showcased the Raiders’ determination to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Tre’von Moehrig also played a crucial role in making life difficult for Mahomes, registering three tackles during the game. While Maxx Crosby’s individual statistics might not reveal the full extent of his impact, his disruptive presence was a constant challenge for Mahomes.

The turning point of the game occurred within a mere seven seconds of game time, as the Raiders swiftly transitioned from trailing 7-3 to taking a commanding 17-7 lead. This lead proved insurmountable for the Chiefs, securing the Raiders’ victory and marking only the second time Mahomes has lost to an AFC West rival since November 2018.

Following the win, the Las Vegas team, with a 7-8 record, found themselves still in the playoff race and remarkably within reach of the AFC West title.
