Alex Smith played well enough (something like 25c/36att, >340 yards passing, 3TD, 0 Int, 127 rating). But KC's defense, one of the worst in the NFL, couldn't stop didly squat. KC wants to blame officiating, but after KC's defense allowed Raiders offense to rack up 32 first downs, KC has no room to blame anyone but themselves. Plus, KC got away with PI in the endzone late in the game.
With bad defense and bad weather coming, things could get ugly for Chiefs in the last half of season. Saw some interesting W/L stats for Alex Smith in good & bad weather over his career, and its not very good in bad weather. We'll see if Smith can break that trend of his.
As for Oakland, props to that comeback even if vs crappy defense. Been a while since I've seen a game decided with no time left in regulation due to (multiple!#) penalties by KC's defense, which invoked the ol rule a game can't end on a penalty.
The mindless Lynch suspended one game for roughing up an official after coming off the bench when KC's Peters was flagged for PF on hit to Carr.
Speculation is growing that Andrew Luck will sit out the entire season, with possible intent to improve their draft position.
