Darrius Heyward-Bey Fumbles; Chiefs Lead Raiders, 3-0

The Kansas City Chiefs started the game with the ball and quickly had to punt it away to the Raiders. Oakland took the ball, on their first offensive play of the game, ran an end-around to Darrius Heyward-Bey, who fumbled the ball as he was tackled. Jovan Belcher caused the fumble and Derrick Johnson picked it up giving KC the ball back at the 17 yard line.

The Chiefs again went three and out before kicking the field goal. The final drive was four plays, five yards and took 44 seconds. Ryan Succop hit a 30-yard field goal.

The Chiefs lead the Raiders, 3-0, with 11 minutes remaining in the first quarter.

The Chiefs started the game with some trickery as Matt Cassel and Thomas Jones lined up in shotgun formation. Cassel motioned out to the right and the direct snap went to Thomas Jones who couldn't do anything with it.
