Chiefs 24, Raiders 7 — Final

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.

    even if Pryor knew every play in every playbook ever created, there are no plays that magically work without an O-line. I’ve never seen one football team in my life run the No Lineman Offense.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    Talking about Flynn won’t change anything.

    Pryor stunk. Bad. One if the worst qb performances in raiders history.

  • Raidersfan727

    Olsens playcalling is terrible. We run the same formation every play. If pryor is truly that brain dead and cant remember plays, then It isnt Olsens fault. If Pryor is not an idiot, then we should have more play variety (I.e, screens, roll outs, curls) and more formation variations. Even our running game is bland. Can’t they call a toss or a sweep? only runs up the middle

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    ya, the big puzzy will remember how to cry on the sidelines, and how to set a record for 3rd and 48.
    always knew he had it in him

  • VanHeathen30

    The O Line is playing two guys off the street and shifting positions… Not a recipe for success against a very good defense. We couldn’t pass or run block consistently from the outset of today’s game. Got tot get the O Line healthy.

  • rifflicks

    you cant call a play the QB doesn’t understand and can’t execute….Olsen said he had to simplify the playbook for pryor

  • r8ter4evr

    If you cant here you cant make changes at the line

  • rifflicks

    and a qb that can read a defense

  • 0ak R8rs

    And btw. Halftime is 20 minutes. 3 minutes I get in the lockerroom. 5 minutes to piss. 5 minutes to change your pads and under shlt. Leaves maybe 7 minutes of you’re lucky to “make your halftime adjustments”.

    Game plans r just that, GAME PLANS. Anybody that knows anything about professional football will tell you that the whole “halftime adjustment” thing is hugely overrated.

    No adjustments covers up a 3rd string center w a 4th string tackle, and practice squad guards and a young overwhelmed QB.

    Get over it.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    so that’s what the brits call crying like a little girl? superior wisdom?

  • rifflicks

    you can if you can read a defense

  • turf toe

    As they say, you are as good as your record.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Glad you picked up on that. I forgot my sarcasm font. Haha

  • LA_RAYDAH

    Man I think if you look at the rebuild, they started with trying to feature DMC with ZBS, and new coordinator….that was first mistake. They recognized they needed to overhaul the defense so they did that. TP was never in their future plans sans Flynn signing. They realized Flynn was garbo, so went with Pryor to their pleasant surprise. They will, and should build to his strengths. He will get it done, he’s way better than people give him cred for. He was never developed, but was impressive against good teams. It’s up to him and the staff to develop him, something the raiders haven’t been able to do in the past.

  • r8ter4evr

    I would say gannon in the last SB was worse and he was a league. MVP

  • Mackinass Don

    that is simply not a true statement!

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    liar. no on coaches soccer on sundays. no parents would show up on sunday. u were at garage sales, and u know it

  • rifflicks

    there are 3 step drops to mixed formations he could have ran very effectively…if he knew them and could check down quickly

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    u going up to the wharf today?

  • r8ter4evr

    Ok Alex

  • turf toe

    Oak, you have to watch the entire second half. It’s part of Raider history now. Pryor looked like Custer out there.

  • LA_RAYDAH

    he read indy, sd, and Denver’s pretty good…

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    The impostor douche shows up to pretend he’s a real man. Just click on the handle before responding if u wanna know if its me (1500 posts) or my puppy (a few hundred).

    Pathetic troll boy.

  • rifflicks

    How does manning beat the blitz’s so effectively…I gues you’ve never seen him play

  • r8ter4evr

    Haters

  • Raidersfan727

    Henne shoulda ran it!

  • rifflicks

    ever see manning play in your life?

  • 0ak R8rs

    I’ve sen it. It’s called cricket.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    if aliases are bigots. i call
    him out. not the same. if ur lazy and and call me a bigot, u let him escape.ur
    referring to me, bullsh1t. i never speak ignorance or hate. u can’t throw a
    blanket over it all. use ur intelligence. missdick and his handles win

  • PlunkforHOF

    Even if we believed you’re different people (which we don’t)… you’re despised in here pretty equally.

  • rifflicks

    call me what ever you like …don’t call me late for dinner

  • LA_RAYDAH

    You learn to read defense through film study, and coaching. You don’t just get drafted and end up Payton Manning overnight. This is TP’s first season rookie or not. Mixed results with a weak oline, and no running game what do you expect?

  • rifflicks

    no he didn’t

  • rifflicks

    3rd year in the league

  • 0ak R8rs

    Pryor isn’t Manning. Even Eli Manning isn’t Manning. There is only one Manning. Get over it. Haha

  • Gdog

    Finally someone noticed this too… if you have a porous o-line why not call screens up the ying yang so they at least have to guess whether they are flying through the line on purpose or not??? Seriously… football 101. The o-line purposely doesn’t block on screen plays… right? So if your line cannot block, why are you calling long developing plays??? Olsen is a moron. sorry Reggie sycophants… he screwed up the OC two years in a row!

  • r8ter4evr

    ALEX

  • LA_RAYDAH

    Why is this win or lose thing about TP. He is not the primary reason why we are 2-4. He has played his part like everyone else. We had a lead in the 4th @ indy. We lead today then weak oline got weaker…insert KC top defense….

  • LA_RAYDAH

    6th game as a player.

  • rifflicks

    I expect quick 3 step drops to mixed formations to keep the secondary honest to open up the running game up underneath …but you cant call those plays to a qb that can’t remember or understand the multiple routes ….can YOU????

  • Gdog

    Uhh, made them PAY for their aggressiveness? Seriously? Do you really have to ask this??? We were still in the game late in the third while Olson was still having Pryor stand in the pocket for 5 seconds…

  • rifflicks

    3 years to learn to read a Defense

  • r8ter4evr

    TP 2-3

  • rifflicks

    can’t take it that I might be who I say I am??

  • DJ Johnny

    Absolutely HORRIBLE performance from Pryor. I know the oline was crap but I was surprised how he just folded like that.
    All those 3 and outs…can’t win like that and the D played great.
    What else can u ask of them?
    Pryor literally GAVE KC 17 pt’s.
    It’s a shame though that we have a few so called “fans” who are taking such delight in those facts.

  • LA_RAYDAH

    where is your proof that he cant do that? Gruden has pointed out his flaws, and strengths on live TV, none of what you say matches his assessment. He gets paid to analyze, and is trusted by his expertise.

  • the pryor fan dr robert

    so come on, u biches. anyone hv the balls to meet me in sunnyvale?
    karoeke night at one of my favorite spots, King of Clubs, on Leong.
    I’ll be there at 8:30 if any1 of u cowards dare to show up.
