Chiefs' Offense Waking Up; Lead Raiders by Three at the Half

Clearly, the addition of WR Chris Chambers is changing this Kansas City Chiefs offense. Chambers has three first half receptions for 60 yards and Dwayne Bowe has two catches for 52 yards. This could be quite the duo in the making.

Stats are at NFL.com. Here are some random thoughts:

  • The box score won't highlight the tripping penalty that negated a long Raiders pass play. It was a play in which the Chiefs got flat out burned on.
  • Jamaal Charles, as we all knew, is a major upgrade from Larry Johnson. Charles' 44-yard TD run in the second quarter may be the offensive highlight of the season.
  • We desperately need speed at the kick and punt returner position. Charles provides that occasionally on kickoffs. Leggett and Savage do not.
  • No team is really pulling ahead or dominating the other. It's a pretty even game.
  • Three drops by the Chiefs' wide receivers is only overshadowed by the Raiders dropping a half dozen.
  • Matt Cassel has 145 yards passing. Definitely one of his best halves of the season, despite an INT.

And after the jump, your first half stats:

Chiefs

  • QB Matt Cassel: 12/22, 163 yards, INT
  • RB Jamaal Charles: 9 carries, 51 yards (44-yard TD run)
  • RB Kolby Smith: 3 carries, 6 yards
  • WR Dwayne Bowe: 3 catches, 59 yards (41-yard catch)
  • WR Chris Chambers: 3 catches, 60 yards (30-yard catch)

Raiders

  • WB Jamarcus Russell: 8/19, 64 yards
  • RB Michael Bush: 5 carries, 69 yards (6-yard run)
  • RB Justin Fargas: 6 carries, 19 yards
  • WR Johnnie Lee Higgins: 3 catches, 27 yards
