Chiefs’ Mecole Hardman scores first NFL touchdown on nice throw from Patrick Mahomes

The Chiefs faced a third-and-20 play from the Raiders’ 42-yard line in the second quarter of Sunday’s game, and the CBS announcers noted Kansas City needed a few yards to get in field-goal range.

Pfft. Field goal?

Instead, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes connected with rookie receiver Mecole Hardman on a touchdown pass. It was the first NFL touchdown reception of Hardman’s career and the throw was perfect.

The touchdown capped a 95-yard drive for the Chiefs that took 6 minutes, 32 seconds.

Raiders fans at the Coliseum got quiet after the touchdown grab.

Here is the play, which the Chiefs shared on Twitter:
