Chiefs sweep of Raiders all but locks up division title

Raiders’ Jon Gruden speaks out on Derek Carr’s play this season

With their victory, the Chiefs advanced to 8-4, while the Raiders fell to 6-6.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' offense were not in explosive form, but Mahomes threw one touchdown and ran for one more in a 175-yard passing day. That would not be the first interception Carr would throw in the first half, but at least the first one was not returned to the house for a touchdown.

Oakland started with the ball, and the drive the tone for their day. This week, the Raiders take on the Chiefs with a chance to draw even with the Chiefs. Raiders kick returner proceeded to fumble the ensuing kickoff, and though they had the ball deep in Oakland territory, the Chiefs were not able to capitalize. Thornhill also stuffed a Raiders fourth-and-short play in the second quarter by tackling wide receiver Trevor Davis. Carr is now 2-10 in his career against Kansas City.

The defense actually didn't have a bad showing.

A lot went wrong during the Chiefs' blowout 40-9 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, and Gruden didn't try to hide his disgust at the penalties, turnovers and a awful field-goal attempt.

A plane crash in South Dakota has left nine people dead, including a pilot and two children, officials say. Brule County States Attorney announced Saturday evening that nine of the plane's 12 passengers died.

While rookie running back Josh Jacobs rushed for 104 yards on 17 carries, the Raiders quickly became a one-dimensional offense because of the Chiefs' big lead.

A Daniel Carlson missed field goal late in the second quarter would send the two teams to the locker room with the Chiefs holding a three-touchdown lead. Just one of the Chiefs' remaining four regular-season opponents has a winning record as of today.

From there, LeSean McCoy strolled in for an easy score. Rookie running back Darwin Thompson drove for his first National Football League score from four yards out as Kansas City took over nine minutes off the clock.

But a review worked in the Chiefs' favor in the third quarter when the Raiders intercepted a pass in the end zone.

That opponent is defending Super Bowl champion New England.
