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.

    Our “leader” really showed up when he played the vaunted Redskin team,LOL!

  • Great point, a lot of 3rd stringers against a very stout defense…..we’ll get them back in Oaktown!!!!

  • turf toe

    Doesn’t it seem like our opponents adjust to us at halftime and we have no answer?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    That’s a given.

  • Goldie7

    yep. lol

  • Goldie7

    LOL

  • rifflicks

    send reggie your resume Einstien

  • krawfdadd

    so sad how some people are so racist driven and ingorant to want your qb to fail because he’s from a different ethnicity…..smh

  • Just Fire Baby

    Nick Foles is eating his lunch right now

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    You have to be fair to Olsen here Gdog,
    His play calling was limited by what was happening with the OL.

  • r8ter4evr

    Ya McClain.is better right

  • spiff

    seems like we got no offensive line…….

  • Jacksonville keeping it close. Only cure for todays loss is to see a Jaguar win. Tenn over Seattle would be nice, even tho Tenn is AFC.

  • rifflicks

    how sad to have stoop to playing the race card
    incompetent QB play has no race

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    who is nick foles?

  • Oaktown Raiders

    Tarver had a bad game. Jamaal Charles still scored twice and he was the strongest link we had to limit this game.. The only reason we executed was the personnel. It was a simple defensive game-plan for a mediocre offense. They shouldn’t have scored period.

  • turf toe

    Our defensive coaching was excellent, but Olson seemed as confused as TP today. It was as if no one was in control.

  • Oaktown Raiders

    At least you’re honest.

  • LA_RAYDAH

    Limited? How so? He has pocket presence, can throw it accurately, can throw on the run, can escape the rush (most times lol). His weakest skills are the deep ball, and reading defenses. He has a strong arm so that’s not the problem, reading defenses takes experience, and film study…He has potential for sure. You my Raider brotha tho, so we can respectfully disagree.

  • Gdog

    Nix at least has an excuse… he’s young. Whats his name was wheeling around Barnes like a turnstyle the entire second half, plus he had penalties. Sick of Barnes… every year we keep seeing this. Jenkins was hot garbage, agreed.

    Pryor no likee noise I guess…

  • krawfdadd

    im calling it like i see it you dont like pryor because of his race.If he was lighting it up you would still find something to bellyache about him about and you know it

  • rifflicks

    how do you make adjustments when you already had to simplify the playbook?

  • Gdog

    Thats a bar easily lept over. Roach is horrible too.. I hope Burris comes back…

  • turf toe

    Write it in crayon?

  • rifflicks

    I don’t know what race you are and I don’t like you because you’re a simpleminded bigot

  • Just Fire Baby

    Yes, losing the chess match still offensively.
    Not really an issue for us defensively.

  • LA_RAYDAH

    You adjust to the pressure with screens, draws, rollouts, and changes in snap count. KC adjusted, but we gave them their biggest lift with 2 players that were backups getting hurt.

  • rifflicks

    maybe the delay of games were somebody trying to read it to pryor

  • Gdog

    You DESERVE garbage if you were impressed with Olsen today. Seriously? You agreed with his play calling???

    Poor child…

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    No doubt there were bad calls but like I said, what he could actually call became limited.

  • krawfdadd

    you dont have to know my race,but from the negative trash that you spew from every angle i know your race ya lil fairy

  • turf toe

    But he’s got a point.

  • rifflicks

    and everybody on a makeshift line playing out of position would automatically know their blocking assignments

  • krawfdadd

    exactly LA

  • turf toe

    Unfortunately, yes.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    The “explosive, exciting, unstoppable, unsackable god from outer space” was sacked TEN times and produced 7 points, while being picked THREE times including a pick 6.

    And the Pryor Brigade says its not his fault and they hated Flynn and Palmer.

    As I have always said, they know nothing about football. Just laughing hyena buffoons.

    Can’t even admit when ur boy sucked.

  • rifflicks

    someone give you a mental wedgie??

  • Back-N-Black

    I’m not even sure that group of O-lineman could pull of a screen pass. Draws are out because McFadden can’t get past first contact. Couldn’t change the snap counts because they were going on a silent count due to crowd noise and the Center couldn’t even handle that.

  • rifflicks

    admit what you like to suck

  • Gdog

    WHY?? If a defense is swarming you don’t call slow developing plays… you screen and draw them to death. That entire right side of their defense was in our backfield… screens to the left??? Oh.. he did ONE and it busted for 20 yards. Reece touched the ball ONCE???

    Cmon… worst OC in the NFL two years straight. This is on Reggie…

  • Definitely put up Flynn like numbers, but at least he’s still employed. He’ll get better. Hang tight bro.

  • rifflicks

    FLYNN IS GONE

  • turf toe

    I can

  • 0ak R8rs

    Well we were in it the first half. And really right up till about 8 minutes left in the 4th. OL caught up w us. Offense is not nearly as far along as the defense, but we all knew that. That’s what “being competitive” is. You’re in the game. You have you’re chances, but you win some and you lose some. We just aren’t quite “ready for prime time” yet.

    Unless you’re an idiot or a hater tho, you gotta like what you’re seeing in this team more than any other team in the last decade+. They fight till the end. The defense is solid w 10 new starters, which is nearly unprecedented (if you leave out our own 2002 Raiders). We have a dynamic up and come g playmaker at QB. The coaching has been solid. And our number one draft pick that had 0 OTAs and 0 TC has made two big plays in two straight games.

    We will get them at home. We would have won today of we had at least Wiz and we were home. We r competitive.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    LOL.
    Yeah,me too although I’m not sure I could drink another keg all by myself.

  • LA_RAYDAH

    Well I suppose they should being pros. Knowing their assignments is why they play. They 3rd stringers because their skill level aint good enuff, but you might be right Riff seeing as if they didn’t adjust as suggested. Damn shame too

  • …And Justice for AL

    We let them off the hook….

  • rifflicks

    clock management???
    read a defense????
    audible out of a play the defense has set up to defend?????
    check down????

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Glad to see you made it to the new blog Oak.

  • Raidersfan727

    there is nothing but dreads flying around in this Denver vs Jacksonville game… I think our team has the least dreads in the league, and last year we had no one with dreads
