Thoughts from the Dark Side:
Kansas City Chiefs
It may not of been pretty, it may not of been exciting or pleasing to the eye, but boy howdy did we get the damn job done! Great shot kids, that was one in a million!
Sometimes all you have left is the "will to win"!
There we were, starting early in the 3rd quarter; with the scoreboard shining Jaguars 20, Raiders 6. All looked as bleak as Padme's death and the Death Star's fate combined!
The Raiders’ passing AND rushing offense still looked horrible, they gave up 10 points off turnovers, discipline was still killing them (thanks linemen) and the defense was still acting like they were playing in wet cement.
There were bad blocks executed and ongoing bad play calls. Fans were begging for Greg Knapp's head like children beg for Halloween candy.

It was the second game this season in which quarterback Carson Palmer has...
It wasn’t pretty, but at the end of the day the Oakland Raiders got the job done. After a terrible first half, the Silver & Black Attack turned the tide after halftime and, counting with a great overall effort by the defense, were able to take the game to overtime and get the victory with a field goal by Sebastian [...]
The Oakland Raiders went back to work Monday with a laundry list of corrections to be made after their 26-23 overtime win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but probably the biggest issue was the play of their offensive line. "They won the battle up front, there's no question about it," Oakland coach Dennis Allen said. "We weren't able to run the ball effectively...
Last week: 29 (-2) Record: 2-4 I went back and forth between the Raiders and Chiefs here, but I ultimately decided to drop the Raiders to this spot, in spite of their overtime home win. If you need Blaine Gabbert to get hurt to beat the Jaguars in overtime at home, you might as well [...]
