Raiders rookie Jacoby Ford became just the second player in NFL history to have at least 140 receiving yards and 150 kick return yards in a game during the Raiders 23-20 OT win over Kansas City.
"It's a blessing and I feel honored to have achieved that accomplishment," Ford said.
Ford caught 6 passes for 148 yards including grabs of 29, 37 and 47. The 29-yard catch set up K Sebastian Janikowski's game-tying 41-yard field goal with three seconds left in regulation. The 47-yard diving snare gave the Raiders 1st and 10 at the Chiefs 15 and set up Janikowski's 33-yard game-winning kick.
The 4th round pick out of Clemson returned the opening kickoff of the second half 94 yards for a score to put the Raiders on the board and jumpstart the Silver and Black's comback and ignited the sold-out crowd. Ford finished with 158 return yards.
