Chiefs-Raiders Score: KC Takes 14-0 Halftime Lead

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs are dominating the Oakland Raiders through one half of play and capitalizing on the Raiders' mistakes, which have happened early and often. It's 14-0 at halftime in favor of the Chiefs.

The Raiders started Kyle Boller and not Carson Palmer in this game and he's already thrown three interceptions already to Kendrick Lewis, Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr. Lewis took his back for six points and the rest of the defense looks good. The first half highlight, besides the interceptions, was the awesome goal line stand that resulted in zero points for Oakland. Derrick Johnson is having a heck of a game as well.

The Chiefs offense has looked sharp, too, with Matt Cassel throwing a meaningless interception at the end of the first half. Cassel has completed 11-of-19 passes for 125 yards including five balls to Dwayne Bowe for 59 yards. Steve Breaston has added 49 yards receiving. Jonathan Baldwin recorded his first NFL catch, a first down. The Chiefs have a touchdown from Le'Ron McClain (although he fumbled the ball before breaking the goal line, which was recovered by Jon Asamoah, so if there is a stats correction then this one could get changed to give Asamoah the touchdown).

The Chiefs special teams is involved as well with punter Dustin Colquitt pinning the Raiders at the one and two yard line on a pair of punts. Impressive stuff from him.

It's 14-0 and things are looking good for the Chiefs.
