The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs are squaring off in Week 16. Through three full quarters of play, the game remains a low-scoring affair, as the score stands at 10-6 in favor of Oakland entering the final quarter.
Penalties continue to be a huge problem for Oakland, as they have been all season. Just as one example: on a kickoff return early in the third quarter, the Raiders had both twelve men on the field and committed an illegal block in the back. They have 14 unforced penalties through the first three quarters.
The Raiders were finally able to find the end zone midway through the third quarter, as quarterback Carson Palmer launched a deep bomb to Denarius Moore for a 61-yard touchdown pass that put the Raiders up 10-3 at that point. The touchdown was much needed as both teams are having a lot of trouble capitalizing on red zone opportunities.
Ryan Succop closed the gap a bit for the Chiefs as he nailed a 20-yard field goal to bring the score to 10-6.
