The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Oakland Raiders in convincing fashion Sunday. The Chiefs, who scored 24 points to the Raiders 7, won the game on the strength of their defense, as they have most of the year.
The Chiefs recorded 10 sacks of Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor and intercepted him three times, including one returned for a touchdown.
Oakland was playing without much of its starting offensive line, and it showed on the field. The Raiders were flagged for numerous false start and holding penalties, though some of that can be attributed to the decibel record-setting crowd at Arrowhead. The noise was at times so loud that players couldn't hear the referees' whistles on the field.
Kansas City moves to 6-0 on the season, while Oakland falls to 2-4. The game was the first of a three-game home stand for the Chiefs, who take on the Houston Texans next week. The Raiders head back to Oakland to begin a two-game home stand that starts with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
