Raiders Vs. Chiefs Update: Kyle Boller Ineffective, Carson Palmer Warming Up

This first half couldn't have gone much worse for the Oakland Raiders. Their star running back is playing hurt and their starting quarterback is hurting every Raiders fan by playing.

Kyle Boller is pretty much the reason the Raiders are trailing 14-0 at halftime, as two of his turnovers (one a pick-six) led to both of the Chiefs touchdowns. He seemed to be getting it going by completing five straight passes in a two minute drill to try and get Oakland a score, but he then underthrew a deep ball that was intercepted by Brandon Carr to end their second best offensive possession (Oakland was stuffed at the goal-line on their first possession).

The calls for Carson Palmer are growing louder and louder as the game goes on. It looks like Raiders fans are going to get their wish, as Palmer has put on his helmet and is starting to warm up on the sidelines after another ineffective three-and-out by the Raiders to start the third quarter.

To talk about the Raiders, hit up Silver and Black Pride. To talk about the Chiefs, best to turn to Arrowhead Pride.
