Posted Dec 10, 2017

Kansas City returned to its winning ways on Sunday with a convincing victory over the Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Oakland Raiders, 26-15, at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to snap their four-game losing streak and move to 7-6 on the season.

The Chiefs outgained the Raiders by 140 yards on the afternoon, holding Oakland off the scoreboard until midway through the fourth quarter.

The Raiders mustered a late rally after finally reaching the end zone, scoring 15 points in the final quarter of play, but the Chiefs ultimately held on for the victory.

Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith completed 20 of 34 passes for 268 yards, finding tight end Travis Kelce a team-leading seven times for 74 yards.

Tailback Kareem Hunt added 116 yards and a touchdown on the ground, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark on the season early in the fourth quarter. Hunt is just the second rookie in franchise history to rush for 1,000 yards, joining the late Joe Delaney (1981). 

Running back Charcandrick West ran for a touchdown of his own later in the game, dashing for a 13-yard score.

Kicker Harrison Butker chipped in four field goals for Kansas City, including a 53-yard kick in the first quarter. Butker’s second kick marked his 26th field goal of the season, breaking the franchise record for field goals by a rookie. 

The Chiefs return to Arrowhead next week to take on the Los Angeles Chargers in primetime on Dec. 16.
