Raiders 0, Chiefs 0 — End of 1st quarter

The Raiders and Chiefs are engaged in a field-position battle right now, with the defenses ruling the day so far.
The Raiders recorded three sacks of Alex Smith in the first quarter, while the Chiefs took down Terrelle Pryor twice in the opening 15 minutes.
Pryor has completed all three of his passes for 32 yards, while Darren McFadden hasn’t been able to get untracked running the ball — 4 yards on three carries.
Sio Moore, Nick Roach and Vance Walker recorded the sacks for the Raiders, who have the ball at their 48-yard line.

    If only he could hold better

  • 0ak R8rs

    Kluwe couldn’t do that if his life depended on it. Or his weed.

  • Just Fire Baby

    King just bailed out Pryor and the offense.
    Co-MVP of the first half.

  • SnBG

    Brutal. Halftime can’t come soon enough

  • 10centsworth

    WE are the Raiders. THEY are the zebras. not the NFL today, NFL forever.

  • _Mista_

    Easy on MR’s bff

  • J Hill

    Just needs to get settled back down.

    trying to do too much after the TD.

    Just like last week when we went up 14.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    TP failing to throw that ball away might have led to the KC 7.

  • LB32

    In general, the O plays two good quarters

  • Try Some Reality

    King essentially killed that Chiefs attempt for points there right before the half. What a clutch punt there.

  • JaMarcusGotScrewed

    We should cut King. I don’t like the way he holds. SMH!

  • MaddenRaider

    That punt will be key if we win this game. KC was poised to get a FG at least on this drive. Now they’re sitting on it and calling it a half.

  • good punt, lets get to halftime and regroup

  • turf toe

    King kicks under pressure. See that , Jano?
    Hayden, this…is a football. Thanks, Reggie. Great pick.

  • Alex7

    what a dumb pass playcall. Bad thing could have happened, nothing good could have happened.

  • SnBG

    Thank god for or D. O is fallin apart. Must regroup

  • turf toe

    Hayden looks like a little boy who wandered on the field.

  • MaddenRaider

    King’s punt saved us 3 points and put the crowd to sleep.

  • 5-0 frauds.

  • c2e

    shock the world, keep intensity

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Just Win Baby.

  • LondonAll

    Hats off to the D and Tarver.

  • JOn Wooah

    Whats wrong with GURODE and can he play next half??

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    CB is tough to play as a rookie. It’s not like Dee Miliner’s doing any better. Heck, Nnamdi sucked for two solid seasons.

  • Kamikaze_Sensei

    So what does Allen tell Pryor at the half? Chillax?

  • tom kaufman

    7-7 will take that. Still not likin the Seablob miss

  • hallelujah! no FIRE REGGIE NOW.

  • RaidingTexas

    New post

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS


  • Raidersfan727

    god i hope so

  • JOn Wooah

    no Hayden being dumb with that PI is what led to the TD .. ball wasnt even catchable

  • KoolKell

    TP $

  • RaidingTexas

    He still does suck.

  • turf toe

    Earn your money, Dennis. O needs big adjustment now.

  • Momentum is with Oakland, Reid shivering in his pants, Smith exposed, Raids get the ball.

  • Raidersfan727

    hope that kick doesnt come back to bite us

  • 0ak R8rs

    Ever seen a rookie starting CB in the NFL before? Comes w the territory.

  • MaddenRaider

    Chiefs have been holding all day, Alex. They held on the play Smith scrambled for a first down. There’s holding on almost every play. The refs just choose who they’re going to call them on. Get a clue.

  • 10centsworth

    We look at this team in preseason. We understand (don’t we?) what we are looking at. I’ll take some controlled chaos with an exciting QB, an O line that is finding pride in stepping up and some REAL Raider attitude on the field.
    Sorry, losers, this team is beginning to represent…again.

  • KoolKell

    TP: Surgical?

  • turf toe

    Pressure Smith. He hates it.
    Still can’t get over Hayden’s poor play. No excuse, even for a rookie.

  • 7 of 11 for 100 yards 47 yds rushing and a TD

  • SnBG

    Oline is the issue here.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Yeah but Grimmace better find us some players & hope Hayden takes a big leap next year

  • SnBG

    Can Guroude come back. He wasn’t bad

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    He doesn’t want to throw longer than 10 yards. Bump n Run, blitz Alexis this 2nd half

  • knee issue…its hard to pivot

  • SnBG

    Hayden and Pryor taking their rookie mistake lumps. Yes I consider Pryor a rookie. All and all I like what I see with Pryor.

  • hopefully, he can come through today!

  • 0ak R8rs

    Actually, if you know anything about football, it does. There is no harder position to learn in the NFL as a rookie than CB. Not even QB, although that’s debatable. He’s in man 70% of the time and he’s doing a pretty good damned job. He’s gonna look stupid once on a while. It comes w the territory. It won’t be the last time this year, so get used to it.
