    In a rematch of just 2 weeks ago, the Chiefs would look to keep their slight division lead and playoff hopes alive in Oakland. Alex Smith and company would get off to a fast start in the first half and never look back. Smith would toss a TD to Dwayne Bowe and Dunta Robinson would score on a pick 6 en route to a 17-0 halftime lead. The Raiders would have a chance to get on the board late in the second quarter, but LB Justin Houston would burst through the line and stop Darren McFadden on a 4th and short attempt in the red zone just before the half.

    Oakland, however, would come out in the second half and swing the momentum back their way, putting up 10 points in the 3rd quarter to cut the lead to 7, heading into the 4th. Besdies Terrell Pryor's long TD pass to TE Kellen Winslow, neither team would be able to reach the end zone in the 3rd. Kanas Cit would add a field goal early in the 4th to go up 20-10, and late in the 4th, Jamaal Charles would reach the end zone to put the visitors ahead 27-10 with near 2 minutes left. Pryor would then put together a quick scoring drive in under 1 minute, hitting Titus Young for his second TD pass on the day. But from there, Oakland's luck would run out as the Chiefs would recover the onside kick attempt, giving them the 27-17 win. Good game CSteud

    Kansas City now sits atop the AFC West standings at 8-6, with the pesky Chargers right behind at 7-7. The Chiefs would win the division title with a win and Chargers loss, or 2 Chargers losses in the final 2 weeks of the regular season. Otherwise, if the Chiefs lose the last 2, then the Chargers would just need 1 win in the final 2 games as they hold the tiebreaker by sweeping the Chiefs this season.
