Third quarter: Raiders 6, Chiefs 3

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 20th, 2009 at 12:31 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Notes from my living room (working at home today):

– Raiders have zero business being ahead in this game.

– Another Oakland three-and-out _ this one from their own 20. Russell fortunate when he throws up ill-advised lob on third down while pressured by safety Mike Brown. Somehow Zach Miller was in the area and couldn’t hold it.

Raiders can’t run and are doing nothing right in the passing game.

– Chiefs hurting themselves with penalties and drops, punt barely rolls in the end zone. This game is just waiting for the Raiders to seize control.

– Janikowski just loves Arrowhead. He converts turnover into three points and a 6-3 lead with a 54-yard field goal. He’s 22-for-25 lifetime and hasn’t missed in Kansas City since 2002.

Raiders can only go 13 yards with a single first down following Huff interception. Russell misses Louis Murphy in end zone, fires out of bounds to Heyward-Bey. He’s 2-for-13 throwing to wide receivers one week after going 3-for-18 to wideouts _ 5-for-31. Yecch.

– Huff derails promising Chiefs opening drive in second half by reading Matt Cassel and intercepting pass intended for slot receiver Sean Ryan, giving Raiders at the 49. Huff read it beautifully, arriving with perfect timing.

  • jhill

    Ok, so will the defense give it up AGAIN ?!?!?!

    That last drive where we gave up 15 yds on 3rd and 12 was ridiculous!

  • Ghost2Post

    I believe in HUFF.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    GO ELLIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ryan

    That’s game! The offense stole one thanks to the Defense.

    Player of the game…

    HUFF!

  • JB

    Whatever you do Defense – NO PREVENT. Go for the sack.

    OK HUFF GREAT HIT!

    Now just run it out.

  • Florida Pete

    game over…

    RAIDERS WIN!!!

  • Kush

    This is a complete reversal of our fortunes last week. We should be 2-0.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Huff!!! MVP!!!!
    We are still just a 4-12 to 6-10 team unfortunately. Thankfully KC is almost as bad as us.

  • 860Todd Christensen

    Um, but who led the final rampage downfield for the W? Maybe we have to tell him every drive has to be this way?

  • Florida Pete

    so is the secret to tell Russell the Raiders are down and we need a touchdown???

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    RUSSELL SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JB

    The only difference between us & them is we’ve been bad for 6 years. We lucked out this week. We didn’t deserve to win based on our play. Maybe this is payback for last week’s results.

  • http://atm Raider O

    Huff shut me up!!
    The last 2 games he played great!!

  • Timmah

    The raiders are just trying to keep things interesting each week. You don’t want russell passing for 400 yds every week and us winning 35 – 3 do you? That would be so boring.

  • steveandblack

    looks like we can take a sigh of relief… at least for one week

    Hahahahahahah. It’s not funny actually. But it’s sadly true.

  • ottocrat

    I don’t care what happens for the rest of the day, Huff is Defensive player of the week.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Jerry: YOU’RE BLOG IS MESSED UP!
    All this you’re posting too fast probably has something to do with the fact that the blog time is wrong!

  • UP LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER

    HUFF IS THE MVP AND RUSSEL SUCKS

    I HATE TO WISH BAD ON PEOPLE BUT I HOPE AL DIES AND RUSSELL GETS THE SAME INJURY AS BO JACKSON

    BUT THE PEOPLE IN KANSAS CITY KNOW HOW I FELT LAST WEEK AT THE COLESIUM

  • armond

    well big boy made the throws at the end to win it. dmc came up big on the last drive like they were suppose to. if they played like that the whole game it wouldve been a blowout.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Its official JR is a bust!!!! Who are the 1st round QBs for next year or better what FA QBs will be available? I really hate being right on this but I called this at draft time years ago.

    At least the defense played well on the road although they gave up some yards. Considering how bad the offense played, it was probably really good. Regarding the offense, what a sorry state of things… I mean they spent all preseason working on the passing game for crine out loud.

    The moral of the story is you can throw the ball 200 yards on your knees but that does not make you an NFL QB. Maybe things will be better when Shillens gets back. I say start Fry at QB and Pear at RT I mean Green had two “tackles” and several penalties. Probably waiting for Barnes….

  • Florida Pete

    hey… we had our asses kicked today…

    but a W is a W…

    Russell needs therapy…

    McFadden needs new shoes…

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Russell was totally pathetic in this game.
    The defense got worn out in the 1st qtr because ol’e three and out Russell couldn’t complete a pass.

  • Shawnraiders81

    What happened to JaMarcus? did he get confused by Dorsey/Bowe and thought he was back at LSU.

    I’m glade he made me eat crow.

  • raiderzride4free

    absolutely horrible game. but a win is a win

  • Shawnraiders81

    If JaMarcus had some confidence, some weight loss, some accuracy. We may actually have something.

    This come from behind win is a start, I still think the Chiefs gave us the game.

  • steveandblack

    don’t forget guys – that Chiefs offense put up 24 points on the Ravens’ D. Raiders only allowed 10 points, and in Kansas City.

  • armond

    can we start huff over eugene now? enuff is enuff.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Pete says “Russell needs therapy”.
    The guy needs glasses too.
