Game Summary

First Quarter:

Raiders got the ball first, and promptly committed a holding penalty to back them up. The Raiders chewed up the clock a little but it was all for naught at the Honey Badger picked off a Derek Carr pass setting the Chiefs up in great field position. Andy Reid challenged that there was pass interference on Sammy Watkins which resulted in “no foul” continuing the trend against the players. None of it mattered as Mahomes would toss his 20th Touchdown pass of the year and the Chiefs went up 7-0 at the 7:26 mark. On the ensuing kickoff Dorian O’Daniel would recover a Raiders fumble, again setting the Chiefs up beautifully. Yet on a 4th and 1 at the 14 the Raiders made a stop. A gutsy call by the crew. Jacobs would ground and pound and get the Raiders marching down the field, but penalties by the Raiders backed them up and they were forced to punt the ball back late in the quarter to the Chiefs. The 5th Raiders penalty of the quarter helped moved the Chiefs out from their own end zone.

Second Quarter:

Chiefs possess the ball the start the 2nd quarter with the first pass of the quarter going to Kelce for a huge gain, which is followed up by a Williams 15 yard run. On a 3rd and 14, Mahomes made a dangerous throw back to his left that was nearly picked, thankfully it was not and the Chiefs punted the ball back to the Raiders with 12:53 left in the quarter. The Raiders went for it on 4th and 1 and did not convert as Juan Thornhill came up and made the stop on a sweep. On the ensuing drive Mahomes would connect with Kelce on a basketball style jump ball in the middle of the field, which Kelce held on to. A holding penalty on the Raiders helped the Chiefs overcome what would have been a 4th down, keeping the drive alive. Mahomes would scramble to his left on a 13 yard run for the Chiefs second touchdown of the night. On the following drive the Raiders would start to move the ball down the field until Juan Thornhill picked Derek Carr and returned it 46 yards for a Chiefs defensive touchdown. Carr would come back out with 3:36 left in the quarter down 3 touchdowns, promptly hand the ball off to Jacobs who gashed the Chiefs. Following the 2:00 minute warning, Frank Clark would make a stop on Jacobs for a 7 yard loss. The Raiders couldn’t make anything happen and on 4th and 17 brought on Daniel Carlson for a 44 yard attempt that he missed. The Chiefs would get the ball back and Mahomes would get sacked creating a 3rd and 15 with the clock rolling. An incomplete pass to Sammy Watkins would lead to the Chiefs punting and ending the half up 21-0.

Third Quarter:

Mecole Hardman took the kickoff to the 35, and the Chiefs started off with a Mahomes run. When it looked like the Chiefs might have to punt the ball away, the Raiders roughed the passer on a dead play, giving Mahomes and Company another shot. Utilizing the legs of Mahomes, the Chiefs faced a 3rd and 1 which they would convert and score on, yet offsetting penalties would negate the TD. Unable to convert Butker was brought out for a 50 yard try which he banged through good. Chiefs up 24-0 early in the third. The following Raiders drive would begin after Oakland’s 9th penalty. Chris Jones would come up with a sack of Carr and force an Oakland 3rd and 14 which they could not convert. Ball back to the Chiefs at the 9:12 mark via punt. Mahomes and Kelce would connect for 47 yards, setting the Chiefs up nicely. Yet Darrell Williams would come up gimpy with a non-contact injury deep in the redzone. All would be for naught as Mahomes would throw a terrible pass to get picked in the end zone for his 3rd interception of the season. The play would be reviewed for what seemed like forever, and actually be reversed, giving the Chiefs the ball at the 3 yard line, and dropping Patrick back down to only 2 interceptions on the season. We finally got one to go our way, and it would pay off as Shady would take the toss in for a 3 yard touchdown run. Chiefs go up 31-0 with 6:51 to go in the third. KPass would sack Carr for a 10 yard loss on the Raiders next possession, but Oakland would continue to slowly eat up the clock and take chunks of yards with their Tight Ends. The Raiders would convert a 4th and 1 to keep their drive alive just past midfield, but Carr would throw it away to close out the third quarter.

Fourth Quarter:

The Raiders had the ball starting the 4th quarter, and sent out their Field Goal unit to put the Raiders on the board with a 34 yarder. The Chiefs started their next drive with consecutive running plays, forcing a 3rd and 7 that was converted with an awkward pass to Kelce. We finally got to see Anthony Sherman make a catch to extend the Chiefs drive on a 3rd and 1 with 11:40 left in the game. Darwin Thompson started taking the reps and made some nice gains. He converted multiple first downs as you could see the team went run heavy hoping to melt time off the clock. Another Raiders penalty set the Chiefs up with 1st and goal under 6:00 minutes, and it was capped by a 4 yard touchdown from Darwin Thompson, his first in the NFL. (It was mentioned in the broadcast two Chiefs scored their first NFL TDs, both Thornhill and Thompson, save that for trivia night you factoid nerds like myself.) Raiders got the ball back with 5:24 left in the game, a couple garbage time completions against the backups got the Raiders down the field and their first touchdown with under a minute left. On the extra point try the Chiefs special teams blocked the attempt, which was picked up by Ward and returned the length of the field for a safety. 2 point conversion-credit: ArmyChiefJ. Matt Moore came out and knelt the ball down. Chiefs hung 40 on the Raiders, more than likely ending Carr and Gruden’s attempt at reaching the playoffs.

Conclusion

The Chiefs came off the bye and nearly pitched a shutout. Many of us wanted to see something from the squad, and in a matchup that was a lot closer in the standings concerning the AFC West then it should have been at this point in the season, the team put up.

The team travels to Foxboro next weekend in the matchup many of us has had circled on our calendars since last season ended.

Not really excited about this win. The offense still not clicking. I did like the spark of life in the running game. Hopefully we can continue that. The inability to pick up 4&1 or 3&1 is going to kill us when we need it most. I could argue it already has cost us 2 games this year.

Gotta love a crappy offense that somehow scores 4 TDs. Mahomes and the receivers are way out of sync on a lot of plays. I guess it was windy today, but it didn’t seem to bother Butker. Hard to tell if it affected Carr b/c he almost always throws about like he did today. If our defense somehow plays like this against the Patriots, this offense could still be enough to beat them. Hopefully, whatever is the problem, they figure it out in the next week.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Bad series from Houston.

ForeverRanger91

Carr gets a bad case of the yips against the Chiefs. I guess all those times Houston hit him as a rookie has him rattled.

hmills110
hmills110

Tamba Hali had some kind of voo-doo thing with Carr. He’d do that Tamba-Hawk thing, and Carr would tense up for the hit, even though Tamba was 8 yards away.
“Tamba stalls in his rush. Waves his hands. Carr flushes from the pocket, STRAIGHT into Justin Houston’s warm embrace!” (If Cosell were still alive).

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Brady is getting pissy.

That game couldn’t have ended any better. Raiders get a feel good score and Ward allows the Chiefs to get the last laugh.

KC scored 2 special-teams coups on Oakland. The fumble and the 2-pt conversion. One to open and the other to close. Throw in the 50-yard FG in windy conditions and Toub gets the hat-trick, today.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Nice to see NE down early. Hope Houston pours it on and doesn’t stop.

The Chiefs actually ran Spider 2 banana against the Raiders and converted a third down with it. Fucking…Glorious…

The only downer for today is that the computer tech at my school will claim that the Broncos have found their quarterback. I live to see him acting like a sad sack.

This is the most irreverent site. So glad you guys set this up for the fun crowd.

Anthony and the crew set it up, but it’s the fun crowd that makes it irreverent, yourself included.

Lets be more irreverent by adding some Asian girls!!!!

Should have just clicked on the streaming link I posted in the game threads. That’s what I did.

hmills110
hmills110

I may do that. I kinda like listening to Mitch on the radio, first, anyway. Then watch it on GamePass. Then watch all-22 later in the week.

My favorite way to watch was on DirecTV, with the DVR, because you could pause the video with the sound turned down and sync with Holthus, who was always 3 or 4 seconds behind streaming his audio. You could sync it, perfectly. DVR had its uses. But the biggest games usually coincided with snowstorms, and the dish would get clogged up, out of reach to clean. *sigh* . Anyway, it cost a lot, I could afford it, and I gave it up about 9 years ago.

I loved how Ward blocked the extra point on the Raiders’ garbage TD score. And that just punched them in the gut even more.

If intercepting the QB and running it back for a TD is called a pick 6, what’s this play called? A “block 2”?

EAFOX

Yeah – was bummed that the Raiders scored a TD in garbage time but the 2 points by Ward topped off the day.

BleedingRedAndGold

Ward stole every shred of positive Oakland could have gotten from that TD.

EAFOX

True.

so would Belichek be Sauron?

BleedingRedAndGold

He hasn’t even collected the 9 rings for mortal men doomed to die, but that said, if anyone is a dark lord on his dark throne, it’s Billy.

Hell, Sauron even used the palantir he captured to spy on his enemies.

So you’re saying assistant coaches taping the Jets are now palantir?

(Great discussion, by the way. Love the reference to Hoodie as the dark lord)

BleedingRedAndGold

I had to chuckle wryly at how the booth bozos* kept on pulling up the stat from the entire season to frame the narrative that “KC can’t stop the run!”. This has been a season of two halves, and I suspect that Belichick won’t delude himself that way. Gotta figure that there will be plenty of guys just itching for revenge next week.

hmills110
hmills110

Nice to see Ragland on the field on that first drive. The way some teams are running these days, including the Faders, it’s good to see a downhill LB like him.

BleedingRedAndGold

Pennel’s been earning his salt, as well, but yeah it was nice to see Rags and even Hitch getting after it on running plays.

hmills110
hmills110

Agree. And Kpass Is playing better. Took him a while to catch on. He got the start over Okafor, today.

BleedingRedAndGold

KPass is who finally sold me on the Sutton’s a Moron bandwagon. All that ability and he hardly played at all, all because he couldn’t fit himself into the hexagonal hole Sutton demanded of him.

EAFOX

Hope KPASS continues to develop. Might be a bit inconsistent but plays with great hustle and makes some plays here and there. Do we dare hope that Speaks is not a complete bust and could contribute next year?

3rdnlong
3rdnlong

I’m wondering if changing to the 4-3 also wasn’t better for KPass. Seems like he likes having his hand in the dirt more so than playing LB.

EAFOX

Change does seem to help him. Now, we need something to fix DOD.

BleedingRedAndGold

I think it’s possible, but given his early injury IMO the sample size’s too small to extrapolate from. If it did happen the arguments against Veach lose ground, though. He’s added a couple-three capable guys out of this year’s draft.

BleedingRedAndGold

*Ok, Romo’s a fun listen and knows his stuff better than most of his ilk, but he’s still part of the collective of booth bozos. SNF or MNF should pick him up, he’d be a vast improvement over anyone on either crew. So of course it won’t happen. Things have to be done in a corporate way to a corporate standard if you want to hit the big stages.

You ramble as bad as I do.

Baltimore made a nobody look like LaDanian Tomlinson.
Nearly 14 yards a carry last I saw in the third or some shit.
Baltimore won the game.

BleedingRedAndGold

Baltimore? Sure, they’ve improved since we beat them. So have we. Or were you going somewhere else with that comment?

Armychiefj
Armychiefj

pretty sure he meant “run defense doesnt matter”

BleedingRedAndGold

In response to me saying that our run D’s greatly improved over the beginning of the season? Ah, well, I’m easily confuzzled at times.

legal_kush
legal_kush

Is our run defense greatly improved?

BleedingRedAndGold

Over early in the season? I believe they are. Pennel’s proved to be a quality addition and getting the scheme down also matters. So’s getting everyone healthy, but I’m also confident that there will be those who will point to a game or two after Denver and claim that in those the run D “returned to the reality that they suck” or some such.

Since that logic is premised on the belief that defense is played by a bunch of individuals and scheme doesn’t matter, I’ll treat it with all the respect it deserves.

legal_kush
legal_kush

RB1 17 carries 104 yards 6.1 yards per carry
Just think if we hadn’t a large early lead.

EAFOX

I think the point should be that we do not consistently suck at run defense. We do get gashed which is something that needs to improve but we go thru stretches where we play the run well.

hmills110
hmills110

Well, there’s gettin’ gashed, and there’s playin’ soft between the 20s. There’s also just playing aggressive so you’re giving up bigger wins to the offense, when they win, but you’re moving closer to the offense losing, by going for it.

That was the thing I liked about the “scrubs” game, when nobodies were playing on that D-Line, and somehow, the defense played pretty good! Saunders may turn out to be the steal of the draft. And now they’re about as full-strength as they can be, with Ogbah out for the duration. But the point about the scrubs game is they had to let out all the stops. And maybe learned they can play that way with their #1s back in harness.

hmills110
hmills110

I only listened to the game. It sounded like they predicated the defense on pressure, most of the time, but also picked up some coverage pressures and sacks. It sounds like they’re starting to get full use of Thornhill’s speed. Even used him to blitz, or so Mitch said. Looks like Mathieu and he are becoming two who think as one on the field. Good to see.

The AFC West has been so easy since Manning retired. QBs with tendencies and weaknesses they pick on, time after time.

legal_kush
legal_kush

Reading comprehension is fundamental.
Shoulda stuck with “more than one way to skin an oppossum.”

hmills110
hmills110

I think SF LET Lamar run, looking to lay the big hit on him. They separated the ball from him at the end of one of those runs. Looked like a gang tackle that could’ve twisted him up, but he escaped the danger. They’re riding the ragged edge of what is wise to put your QB through, because running is working so well for them. But he’s one big hit away from Baltimore not being able to run that offense. They’re taking a calculated risk. Tebow took the league by storm in a year when Ds were weak against the run. But in December, he had bruised ribs, bruised kidney, …

Chiefs clinch AFC West Division with:

I would love to clinch like that. Beating NE next week is going to be a good game! I hope we get Mahomes magic from last year with improved D and making adjustments on D this year.

These December games, I always think about how Belichick practices outside in all weathers, except thunderstorms.

EAFOX

KC 68 OAK 19 – Combined score for this year so I am waiting for all the experts to pick them to win the division next year.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

It will be between them and the Chargers. New stadiums make you the front runner.

ChiefOfTheWolfpack
ChiefOfTheWolfpack

Wrong. The Broncos should be the clear favorites. Drew Lock is going to throw 6200 yards and 60 TDs next season and make Mahomes look like a chump, obviously

Man needs to learn, should have had some tries with Moore in those games.

hmills110
hmills110

Make him a big enough threat, and he’ll drag a couple defenders with him, which beats blocking one guy. There’s a way to work those kinds of guys into your offense on all 3 downs. Remember Dexter McCluster? He was super-strong for his frame. Thompson’s built more like a running back than Dex was. I think Dex weighed 160, dripping wet, after Thanksgiving dinner.

EAFOX

Dude earned some playing time – would consider making him a starter next week with our surprise running attack against the Patriots.

As my (slightly disgusting) cousin used to say after GI Jane that is the only chick hot enough to shave her head and still eat the peanuts in her poo.

Its gross but I guess the idea is that she is hot.
