KANSAS CITY, Mo. — How the Raiders performed in a 40-9 loss to the Chiefs:
The Raiders didn’t score a touchdown until there were 39 seconds left, marking their first trip to the end zone since a Week 11 win over Cincinnati. QB Derek Carr’s woes at Arrowhead Stadium continued. He threw a pair of interceptions in the first half — one of which was returned for a touchdown. Rookie Josh Jacobs was a bright spot with his fifth 100-yard performance.
The Raiders didn’t surrender too many yards. But the unit committed too many penalties, struggled to get off the field on third down and allowed a 14-play, 75-yard drive in the fourth quarter. Rookie CB Trayvon Mullen looked as if he had the second interception, but a review determined he had committed pass interference.
Kick returner Trevor Davis fumbled in the first quarter and was replaced by Jalen Richard. Then Daniel Carlson missed his fifth field goal this season. Near the end of the game, Carlson’s extra point was blocked and returned for two points.
After winning three in a row at home, the Raiders had a chance to make a run for the lead in the AFC West. But they failed to score a TD in a loss at the Jets and came up short at the Chiefs. The two games show the Raiders have work to do.
