Dontari Poe was already the heaviest National Football League player on record to score an offensive touchdown.

Ford's sacks happened on successive Oakland possessions in the fourth quarter, with the Raiders forced to play catch-up.

Coming off a 29-point loss at Pittsburgh two weeks ago, the Chiefs could have fallen two games behind the Raiders in the AFC West in the loss column.

A thorough beating by the Kansas City Chiefs did little to change coach Jack Del Rio's opinion of his Oakland Raiders team. The Texans could also move into a tie with Oakland with a win Sunday night when they host Indianapolis.

On third-and-goal, the Chiefs dialed up a trick play to score on a backwards pass from Smith to defensive lineman Dontari Poe.

The Raiders will stay in Florida for the next two weeks as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 23, followed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 30.

Welcome to the first edition of The Good, the Bad and the Andy, where we take a look at what went right, what went wrong and what left us scratching our heads in the Kansas City Chiefs' latest game. "We're going to ask each guy, every player and every coach, 'Do something, do one thing better this week than you did last week'".

Rushing offense: A. The Chiefs' running game dominated the day to the tune of 183 yards on 40 carries, an average of 4.5 yards per run. Del Rio said he's taking a very micro approach this week as he seeks improvements.

The Raiders finally had a promising drive early in the fourth quarter, reaching the Kansas City 20-yard line.

Let's set the scene: The Chiefs are up 13-10 and start the second half with the ball on their own 25. They got wide receiver Albert Wilson lined up on Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack and he got behind him for a 26-yard gain.

Instead, Carr was flushed and fired a floater off his back foot that was picked off by cornerback Marcus Peters, the Oakland native who now has interceptions in each of his two visits to his hometown. On third and goal from the 3, Carr threw to Andre Holmes, who fought off being held to get up and make the touchdown grab.

"Alex threw the ball ideal", Poe said.

The wet field proved to make kicking hard as Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos missed an extra point on the ensuing drive, making the score 13-7. In the meantime, the Chiefs playing well on both sides of the ball, and appear to be ready to challenge for a division title this year.

"We have a real good team", Del Rio said Monday at his weekly news conference.
