Chiefs Get Feel Good Win Against Hapless Raiders

New, comments


It wasn't pretty, exciting or convincing. But the Kansas City Chiefs got a win.

The Chiefs topped the Raiders 20 to 13 this afternoon in a rather boring contest.

Here are a few key points from the game:

  • The Chiefs played excellent on 3rd down with a 53% conversion rate.
  • Larry Johnson ran effectively on 22 carries for 92 yards.
  • Thigpen really zeroed in on Tony Gonzalez today. TG caught 8 passes for 110 yards. Bowe caught 2 passes and a few other players caught one.
  • The Chiefs defense played one of its best games of the year. We cut down on missed tackles and we contained the run as best we could.

At the end of the day, a win is a win. This feels great.
