The positive vibe that accompanied the news that Kyle Boller would earn the start for the Oakland Raiders today was validated within the first few minutes. That’s because the Kansas City Chiefs defense took advantage of an errant Boller throw and Kendrick Lewis intercepted and returned it all the way to the end zone. The result: Kansas City leads the game 7-0.
After a rocky start with several penalties against the Chiefs, it’s nice to see the Chiefs taking the lead on the road against a formidable Raiders team. If Boller keeps it up, however, you’d better believe Hue Jackson is going to put in his prized possession of Carson Palmer.
