11:52 pm
43 yards to the house. kittle finishes with a new record. the rams win, but kittle on his big day. >> yeah, it hasn't really hit yet, but definitely exciting. i mean, it definitely wasn't just me. had three quarterbacks throw me the ball. we had our o-lines, just ups and downs throughout the year, guys in and out. it's just a credit to our team to keep pushing, grinding the whole year no matter what happened. i definitely would have enjoyed a win today, but this definitely makes ate little bit better. raiders and chiefs in arrowhead. pat mahomes in kansas city, looking to secure the number one seed in the play-offs. two minutes into the game, mahomes, how good is this guy's arm? pretty good. tyreek hill. gone. 67 yards, and the chiefs are upset. later in the first, same score. derek carr intercepted. daniel sorenson, 54 yards to the house. caught his first interception in his last 333 pat attempts.
