The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs are engaged in a tough war in their Week 13 game as both teams try to stay alive in the postseason hunt for one more week. Through the first half of play, it has been far from a low-scoring affair. The score remains tied 3-3, which has been the score since the latter portion of the first quarter.
Midway through the second quarter, the Raiders appeared to have caught a huge break on a brilliant play. Sebastian Janikowski lined up for a 53-yard field goal attempt. It turned out to be a fake play as the ball was snapped to tight end Brandon Myers, who scrambled into the end zone for an apparent touchdown. It was waved off, however, as the Raiders snapped the ball after the play clock had wound down and were charged with a delay of game penalty. Janikowski attempted the subsequent 58-yard field goal, which fell just short, bouncing off the crossbar.
Kickers for both teams are 1-for-2 in their field goal attempts. Carson Palmer has thrown two interceptions, while Kyle Orton has thrown one. Both teams have been charged with over 50 yards of penalties, while each gaining less than 160 total yards.
