The Kansas City Chiefs Defeat the Oakland Raiders on the Road

Last year in Kansas City against the Raiders, Jarrad Page intercepted an Aaron Brooks pass in the endzone with 32 seconds left to seal the win. Today, Page did the same and intercepted Daunte Culpper with less than a minute left in the game, sealing another win for the Chiefs in Oakland.

Larry Johnson had a similar to game as last week, rushing for 112 yards with 54 of those yards coming on one carry in the third quarter.

The defense played great, with the exception of a total breakdown on two plays that allowed the Raiders to take the lead 7 to 6 in the third quarter. Jared Allen continued to dominate along with Derrick Johnson.

Besides the dramatic finish, I have to say this was probably the most boring game to watch as a viewer. At the same time, its probably the exact type of game Herm Edwards enjoys coaching.

I'm off to write the game recap, which I can assure you will be shorter than usual. Besides the appearance of Priest Holmes, this game didn't reveal much for the Chiefs. Our defense wins our games. The offense again needed a short field to score. The Chiefs scored on drives of 57, 16 and 74 yards. I have to nominate Damon Huard's 58 yard pass to Bowe in the fourth quarter as Huard's all time best play.

Off to write the recap. Glad to have the win and glad to be undefeated in the AFC West.
