The Kansas City and Oakland offenses were relatively quiet through two quarters Sunday, and the Raiders hold a 13-6 halftime lead over the Chiefs at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium.
Oakland took a 6-0 lead thanks to Sebastian Janikowski field goals of 36 and 35 yards. But the Chiefs rallied, as Ryan Succop connected from 30 and 42 yards to tie the game. The Raiders finally found the end zone with 49 seconds remaining in the half when Carson Palmer hooked up with Denarius Moore for a nine-yard touchdown.
Brady Quinn started at quarterback for the Chiefs, but he was knocked out of the game late in the first quarter with an apparent head injury. Quinn completed 2-of-4 passes for one yard and an interception, and he fumbled once. Matt Cassel came on in relief and completed 7-of-10 passes for 110 yards.
The Chiefs haven't had much of a ground game, evident in Quinn leading the team in rushing with 18 yards on two first-half carries. Dwayne Bowe caught two passes for 53 yards to lead Kansas City receivers in the first 30 minutes.
Palmer has completed 9-of-17 passes for 139 yards, one touchdown and one interception, which came on his first throw of the game. Darren McFadden has 17 rushing yards on 12 carries, and Moore has 83 yards and three receptions to go with his touchdown.
