Las Vegas Raiders star Davante Adams is facing a potential suspension after pushing over a TV crew member while walking off the ground from a loss to Kansas City.
Adams, upset after he and teammate Hunter Renfrow collided downfield on a fourth-and-1 pass that virtually ended the game, slammed his helmet down in anger as he walked off the ground.
Then as he walked into the rooms he shoved a man who appeared to be a camera assistant to the ground, later apologising.

“Before I answer anything else, I want to apologise to the guy — some guy running off the field, and he ran, jumped in front of me when we’re coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him and I think he ended up on the ground,” Adams said.
“I wanted to say sorry to him for that. That was frustration mixed with him running, literally running in front of me, and I shouldn’t have responded that way. But that’s how I initially responded so I want to apologise to him for that.”
Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdown passes to Travis Kelce and Kansas City rallied from a 17-point deficit Monday night to edge the Las Vegas Raiders 30-29.
Mahomes completed 29 of 43 passes for 292 yards without an interception, while Kelce caught seven passes for 25 yards as the host Chiefs improved to 4-1 while the Raiders fell to 1-4.
Mahomes delivered the greatest regular-season comeback of his career.
“They brought the fight to us early,” Mahomes said. “I’m just proud of these guys and how they responded. To come back like that and win a big game, I’m proud of these guys.”
Mahomes challenged his blockers after Las Vegas jumped ahead 17-0.
“The O-line stepped up to the challenge,” he said. “We talked about it. I went right up to them and said we’re going to win or lose this game on y’all.
“They stepped up to it. They had a heck of a pass rush and (our blockers) gave me enough time to get some throws off and we were able to move the ball.”

Mahomes threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Kelce on the first drive of the third quarter to pull Kansas City within 20-17.
On the next Chiefs possession, they marched 57 yards in eight plays, with Mahomes capping the drive on an 8-yard touchdown throw to Kelce to take their first lead at 24-20.
“That man battles. He competes,” Mahomes said of Kelce. “He’s just someone who is obviously talented but he loves this game.”
Daniel Carlson kicked a 47-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to lift the Raiders within 24-23.
But Mahomes directed a 13-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Kelce, although an incomplete pass on a 2-point conversion attempt left the lead at 30-23.
That fourth touchdown catch set a record for any NFL Monday night game.
“I just worked my tail off for these guys in red. It’s a lot of fun being out here,” Kelce said. “We started off a little slow but got fired up in the second half for sure. We’ve got a lot of heart in this Chiefs locker room and keep bringing it every single day.”

His last TD catch set the stage for Derek Carr’s 48-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams, but the Raiders opted for a 2-point run attempt and failed to remain behind Kansas City 30-29.
The Chiefs stopped Las Vegas on downs in the final minute to seal the triumph. Carlson kicked a 50-yard field goal with 17 seconds remaining in the second quarter but Matthew Wright answered with a 59-yard field goal as the first half ended to lift the Chiefs within 20-10 at half-time.
Kansas City first scored on an 11-play, 75-yard drive that ended when Mahomes flipped a 1-yard touchdown toss to Kelce.
Carr threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Adams, Josh Jacobs scored on a 1-yard run and Carlson hit a 53-yard field goal to put the Raiders ahead 17-0.
