He also caused a fumble, sort of. Cheifs Squeek out 12-10 victory over Raiders - Kansas City Star


Chiefs squeak out 12-10 victory over Raiders


The Kansas City Star


JOHN SLEEZER | The Kansas City Star


OAKLAND, Calif. | Sure, the Chiefs may be struggling. But there’s one thing they can still do — beat the Oakland Raiders.


The Chiefs won their ninth straight against their longtime nemesis Sunday, holding on for a 12-10 victory at McAfee Coliseum.


And hold on they did. Oakland had one last chance after forcing the Chiefs to punt with 1 minute, 46 seconds to play. Raiders quarterback Daunte Culpepper completed three straight passes that got the Raiders to their 41, but his fourth throw went into the arms of Chiefs safety Jarrad Page at midfield.


Oakland drew to within 12-10 on Sebastian Janikowski’s 37-yard field goal with 5 minutes, 49 seconds to play.


The Chiefs forged ahead 12-7 by converting three third downs on a 74-yard fourth-quarter touchdown drive.


Quarterback Damon Huard, scrambling to avoid the rush, converted a third-and-10 play by hitting rookie Dwayne Bowe for a career-best 58-yard reception to the Oakland 16. Huard converted a third-and-5 play by spinning away from the rush and spotting running back Larry Johnson along the sidelines for an 8-yard gain to the 3.


Johnson then lost a yard, gained 3 yards to the 1 and scored on a second-effort run behind guard Brian Waters with 11:30 to play. The Raiders challenged the score, saying Johnson was stopped short of the goal line, but replays upheld the call on the field.


The Chiefs, leading by five points, elected to go for a two-point conversion, but Huard’s pass for Bowe was incomplete.


The Raiders took a 7-6 lead with 2:37 left in the third quarter after Chiefs kicker Dave Rayner shanked a 30-yard field-goal attempt.


Johnson bolted for a career-best 54 yards to the Oakland 29, but the Chiefs, leading 6-0, were unable to punch the ball in, and they paid dearly.


On the first play after Rayner’s miss, Culpepper arched a deep sideline pass to Jerry Porter, who had gotten behind cornerback Patrick Surtain for a 59-yard gain to the Chiefs’ 21.


Then, Culpepper found Ronald Curry by himself in the back of the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown pass, and the extra point gave Oakland its 7-6 lead.


The game marked the return of running back Priest Holmes, who was activated on Saturday after spending the last two years on injured lists after suffering a head/neck injury on Oct. 30, 2005.


Holmes entered the game with 2:26 to play in the first quarter. He caught a checkdown pass from Huard and was stopped in his tracks for a 6-yard loss.


The Chiefs jumped out to a 6-0 lead on field goals of 41 yards in the first quarter and 32 yards in the second quarter by Rayner.


The Chiefs had to settle for the second field goal after coming up with a fumble by Raiders punt returner Chris Carr, who was inadvertently bumped by teammate Nnamdi Asomugha, who was trying to block Kansas City’s Rashad Barksdale. Jon McGraw recovered at the Oakland 29, but the Chiefs were unable to muster a first down and had to call on Rayner.


The Chiefs held Oakland to one first down and 12 net yards in the opening quarter, but the Raiders had a chance to draw to within a field goal in the opening quarter when they crossed into Kansas City territory for the first time.


Facing a fourth and 1 at the Kansas City 17, the Raiders chose to go for the first down instead of a Janikowski field-goal attempt, but Chiefs defensive tackle Alfonso Boone submarined and stopped Justin Fargas for no gain

All this kid needs is a few years of tutelage and you will see him move up to 3 on someone's depth chart. Couldn't be in a better situation in my opinion, learning from a hard nose former defensive back-- Herm Edwards.
