Hmmm.

The Raiders scored the first touchdown of Thursday night’s game against the Chiefs on a flea flicker as Oakland quarterback Derek Carr connected on a 38-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper in the opening quarter.

Thing is, it seemed that Cooper may have given Terrance Mitchell a shove in the back. Take a look at the play:

Here is a closer look from Twitter user Clay Wendler:

An official threw a flag. Chiefs and their fans expected pass interference would be called. However, the officials picked up the flag.

That led the Chiefs to tweet just one word: “Sus.”

For the uninitiated, that means they thought that was shady.
