In week 1 the Chiefs traveled to Oakland to take on the Raiders. The first quarter was a quarter filled with great defense. The Chiefs had 2 long drives but sputtered out in the redzone. The score at the end of the first was 6-0, Chiefs. Something changed in the second quarter and the offenses started finding their groove. The second quarter saw 3 TD's being scored. Chiefs running back Austin had a rushing TD, Agalor had a receiving TD and the Raiders threw for 1 TD. The score at the end of the first half was 20-10. To start the second half, it looked like it might be a long day for the Raiders. They threw an INT to start the half but the defense came up big again. They forced another FG attempt. This time it was too much for Chiefs kicker Randy Bullock and the kick was short. The Raiders capitalized and threw another TD pass. The Chiefs answered with a TD of their own on a screen play to Tavon Austin. The 3rd quarter ended with the score, Chiefs 27, Raiders 17. To start off the 4th quarter, the Raiders found a weakness in the Chiefs defense and busted a long TD to close the gap. The score was now 27-24. The Chiefs couldn't get anything going when they needed to and were forced to punt. The Raiders starting to drive down the field looking for the winning score. Chiefs SS Rashard Gray came up with a big INT to stop the Raiders long drive. But once again, the Chiefs couldn't get anything going and had to give up the ball again. With 1:32 seconds left, the Raiders offense was firing on all cylinders again as they drove down the field to take the lead. With 45 seconds to go, the score was Raiders 31, Chiefs 27. The Chiefs still had all 3 time outs and used them effectively to get themselves in hail mary range. Newly acquired QB, Beau Spriggs threw up a prayer and Michael Floyd came down with it at the 1 yard line. The Chiefs quickly called a time out with 1 second left on the clock. Instead of just trying to pound the rock, the Chiefs came out in a passing formation. Jump ball to Kendall Wright was swatted out of his hands at the last second.
