Raiders vs. Chiefs halftime score: Late Denarius Moore touchdown puts Oakland up 13-6

What looked like a field goal battle finally got a touchdown. Carson Palmer found Denarius Moore from nine yards out late in the second quarter to give the Oakland Raiders a 13-6 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs at halftime.

The touchdown was set up by a muffed Javier Arenas punt. He put the ball on the turf and the Raiders jumped on it at the Kansas City 11. A two-yard run by Darren McFadden and incomplete pass later, Palmer connected with Moore and Oakland was in front.

It's been a big day for Moore, who set up the Raiders' first field goal when he took a bubble screen 58 yards. He has just three matches on the day, but they have gone with 83 yards and a touchdown so he is shining.

Before the muffed punt and touchdown, the two teams traded field goals. The Raiders struck first, then they added a second field goal, but the Chiefs answered with two of their own.

Matt Cassel is in at quarterback for Kansas City after Brady Quinn left with an injury and he had looked good. He has completed seven of 10 passes for 110 yards and has added 11 yards on the ground, leading the Chiefs on both of their scoring drives.
