This was one of the most insane games I've seen from the Kansas City Chiefs in a long time. The Oakland Raiders took down the Chiefs in Oakland on Sunday, 20-17, in overtime.
There were a ridiculous amount of penalties (stopped counting after 25), Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe to take the lead late in the game, Sebastian Janikowski tied up with seconds remaining and Jason Campbell threw a long bomb to set the Raiders up into field goal range in overtime.
Ouch. Frustrating. Unbelievable.
The Chiefs definitely made their mistakes in the game but had plenty of opportunities to close it out. Dwayne Bowe dropped a key third down pass that would have helped KC close it out. They allowed the Raiders to drive into field goal range with about two minutes left in the game as they held onto a 20-17 lead.'
The Chiefs leave Oakland with a half-game lead in the AFC West. This is a completely different division now.
