Chiefs 24, Raiders 7 — Final

Share

KANSAS CITY – The Kansas City Chiefs parlayed an interception late in the third quarter into a tiebreaking touchdown drive, then relied on their defense to close out the game against the Raiders on Sunday.
The formula worked quite well as the Chiefs sealed the 24-7 win with a barrage of sacks of Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor and a stifling defensive effort overall.
The Chiefs improved to 6-0 with the win, while the Raiders dropped to 2-4 on the season.
The game turned when safety Quintin Demps snagged the ill-advised pass by Pryor, and the Chiefs scored a tiebreaking touchdown four plays later on the second of running back Jamaal Charles’ two rushing touchdowns.
Backup cornerback Marcus Cooper, pressed into duty when starter Brandon Flowers couldn’t go, sealed the game with an interception of Pryor with 4 minutes, 9 seconds left.
Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah closed out the scoring with a 44-yard interception return for touchdown with 1:35 left.
Pryor outplayed counterpart Alex Smith in the first half, but it was Smith that made more key plays from late in the second half through the end of the game.
The Raiders finished the game down two offensive linemen that started the game – center Andre Gurode and right tackle Tony Pashos. That no doubt contributed to the Chiefs sacking Pryor 10 times and harassing him several other plays.
The Raiders also came undone too often as a result of penalties. They played penalty-free football for the first quarter but committed four in the second quarter and five in the third.
Meanwhile, Smith played a conservative game without any turnovers, and the Chiefs committed only four penalties.
Things looked promising for the Raiders early on as they jumped to a 7-0 lead on a short pass from Pryor to wide receiver Denarius Moore that Moore turned into a 39-yard touchdown.
The Chiefs tied the game late in the first half on a 7-yard run by Charles.
Raiders rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden aided the Chiefs scoring drive by committing a pass interference penalty on a third-and-10 play.
The Raiders held their own against the Chiefs in the first half and even outplayed them for stretches.
In the second half, Hayden atoned for his first-half gaffe with a forced fumble inside the Raiders 10-yard line and the Chiefs destined for a tiebreaking score midway through the third quarter.
Fellow cornerback Charles Woodson was there to fall on the loose ball and keep the game tied. For Woodson, that marked his third turnover in two games – he has an interception and fumble recovery against the Chargers a week earlier.

    Coaching first, IMO. The defense was swarming for much of the first half until Tarver/DA put on the brakes hoping to coast to a win.

    A real OC would have punished KC for their over-aggressiveness, they just kept calling long developing plays like a 12 year old playing Madden.

    Worst OC in the NFL. Second year straight. Can we get Hue back now??

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Who are you again?

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    That much is true. When Gurode is out KC smell blood. On one play think there was two or three KC broke the LOS right away and just standing there to watch where TP will go. He end up getting sack. Of course TP’s frustrated.

    The ones that acted like an open freakin’ door! I don’t care whose behind center, you need time to throw. QB getting sacked 10 times! 3 and 48!! You have to be kidding me!

  • rifflicks

    krawf wipe your chin

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    As a language, the word “English”, needs to be capitalized–certainly before you call anyone a moron.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    kap is on fire.
    why oh why al?
    needed to get it done, and u didn’t.
    fail

  • spiff

    at least 4…. that’s funny. giving up six sacks is a lot. no time to throw and receivers not getting open makes it hard for any qb.

  • krawfdadd

    tell your moms 2 wipe her ayuss

  • rifflicks

    who are you???

  • Marty Urias

    Wiz and veldheer out
    Lack of quality starters
    Lack of depth
    Can’t win with constant shuffling on the oline
    Th oline is in shambles right now we need to get healthy

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    just threw his seccond deep td.
    now apologize for being a doorknob

  • LA_RAYDAH

    And what would’ve been your prediction of Flynn against the chiefs today?

  • rifflicks

    my mom died 30 years ago …how was it?

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    kappy is the wave of the future, and just threw his second deep td, perfect spiral, leading his man.
    something pryor could never do

  • Gdog

    After about 6 sacks and we are still in the game, you think Olsen might call plays where Pryor isn’t just standing in the pocket getting creamed? Maybe he doesn’t know its not against the rules to move the pocket?? He called this game like a 12 year old playing Madden. Knapp on his worst game wasn’t this bad… Sorry… we need a real OC. Not someone elses GARBAGE.

  • krawfdadd

    dr rob n rifflicks must be lovers or something,one is always so quick to defend the other…the brown eyed boys,lol

  • Oaktown Raiders

    “flynn is the future
    not for the raiders but for my butt hole
    i love his slong and he’s so good
    tried with pryor but hes not as big

    show me or blow me
    if you cant show me ill just keep blowing matty”
    -the pryor fan dr robert

    Wow.. took me forever to find this quote.

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    It’s alright, hopefully our oline will be healthy on next meeting. With healthy oline I like our chance of beating them.

  • So Pryor had a bad game. BFD. DA, Olson and Tarver had a bad game. So did the rest of the team. But this will make Pryor stronger, as no doubt he’s a learner. He’s smart, unlike Flynn who pouts. Olson needs to use Reece on screens and Jennings more often. When DMAC can’t get the run game going, Pryor tries to do to much. Plus we have the leakiest o-line in the NFL. The Raiders are very close to being very good, sooner than later. TP is still legit. Eat it haters.

  • r8ter4evr

    Been a fan since 71 come to a game punk

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    I’m me Dr. Rob/etc. , and I have been just me-without any other handles on here-for something like 7 years.

  • rifflicks

    especially a qb too stupid to audible to a qick slant or draw

  • kuhlest

    Mariotta, Boyd, Bridgewater, Hundley, Manziel…we need a smarter QB who isn’t learning to throw the ball at this level….Can’t run out of bounds 5 yds behind the LOS(throw away) can’t throw a floater over the middle off of your back foot when the game is tied 7-7….

  • krawfdadd

    absolutely

  • rifflicks

    mostly Later with Pryor at QB

  • Oaktown Raiders

    Wait… Dr. Robert comment in three…

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    said it before. pryor just thinks too slowly. u can see him getting confused easily.
    same with cam. and rgiii. it’s not something they are used to

  • rifflicks

    who ties your shoes for you???

  • kuhlest

    My Pick would be Mariotta….dude has good feet, balance and throws a real accurate ball!

  • r8ter4evr

    You guys on here are like yoyos up and and down not true team faith diehards just little punks

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Tarver had bad game?
    Don’t think so.
    Olsen? His play calling became limited due to forces beyond his control.

  • Gdog

    My guess for the lowest rated PFF player? It might be a tossup between Barnes, Jenkins, and Pryor. And I actually saw Roach turn his back to the QB and push on his lineman like he forgot he is on defense… Smith ran right by him with his back turned. Not sure I have ever witnessed such a thing before. A LB turning his back to the QB!! Thanx Reggie!!!

  • LA_RAYDAH

    Mady (practice squad), Pashos (practice squad), Nix (former practice squad), Briesel (bad guard playing center), Barnes (bad right tackle playing left tackle). Don’t even know the guy that replaced Pashos when he went out lol…Seriously, this would have set back any QB, not to mention no running game, and the loudest crowd ever recorded.

  • rifflicks

    that and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee

  • Jojo

    The nurse at the Home he stays at

  • Goldie7

    So, what happened to Alex7? I guessed he passed out from the keg of beer.

  • krawfdadd

    so brandon weeden,chad henne, and sam bradford disects defenses dude all qb’s get flustered we had rivers confused last week, eli manning has looked confused all season

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Wish I’d been there to prevent that.

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    Lol, that’s because they actually try to give their teams a chance. They don’t read like what’s his name, the QB Raiders just released, which is “oh-shyt-checkdown”.

  • rifflicks

    that and Pryor’s limited skill set and he’s toast

  • Goldie7

    lol

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    so what happened with all the talk of machete missdick, u punk.
    told u i’ll shove that where the sun don’t shine, boyh

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jenkins, Pryor or Nix

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    And, apparently, a stupid and irrelevant comment from you.

  • r8ter4evr

    Racist punk doc come to the black hole and talk smack

  • Gdog

    Name one play that wasn’t a head scratcher after we took a 7 point lead… I can think of maybe three… Olsen is exactly what we get when we dumpster dive for coaches. GARBAGE.

    Tarver called a perfect first half then took his foot of their throat.

  • He’s off in euphoric land, melting away on clouds, blueberry smoothies and classical new wave music. He’ll be back.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    don’t knock it until u try it
