Chiefs 20 - Raiders 17: Key AFC West Battle Coming Down To The Wire

The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs are adding another incredible battle to their historic rivalry. After the Raiders came back to take a 17-13 lead, the Chiefs have driven back down the field to take a 20-17 lead. The Chiefs started at their own 15 yard line and proceeded to drive 85 yards thanks to a huge raiders fumble and capped the drive with a 20 yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe.

The Raiders had forced a three and out but Nick Miller fumbled the subsequent punt and the Chiefs recovered on the Raiders 30 yard line. The call was somewhat questionable but the Raiders used up all their challenges and thus could not challenge the play. The Chiefs then moved thirty yards in five plays and scored their go ahead touchdown.

The Chiefs just forced a Raiders punt and Shane Lechler put up a rare poor punt. The Chiefs start on their own 45 with 4:04 remaining in the game, looking to run out the clock on the backs of Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles.
