Fourth quarter summary: Brodie Croyle’s 19-yard pass to Dwayne Bowe gave the Chiefs possession at the Oakland 30. An Oakland face-mask penalty moved the Chiefs to the 16, but the drive stalled and Dave Rayner was wide left with a 33-yard field-goal attempt.

Daunte Culpepper’s 38-yard pass to Miller on the first play put the Raiders in Chiefs territory. He then hit Porter for 35 yards to the Chiefs’ 14. Fargas scored on the next play.

Croyle hit Tony Gonzalez on passes of 12 and 14, both on third down, to get the Chiefs into field-goal range. They later faced a fourth and one from the 23, but passed on a field-goal attempt. Smith was stopped for a one-yard loss.

Second quarter summary:

After a 28-yard punt by Dustin Colquitt, the Raiders took over at the Chiefs’ 48 early in the period. The Chiefs requested a video review after Daunte Culpepper passed 16 yards to Jerry Porter along the sideline on third and 10 to the Chiefs’ 21. The play was reversed because Porter never had possession and Janikowski came on to kick the field goal that had plenty of room to spare.

Brodie Croyle’s 24-yard pass to Dwayne Bowe got the Chiefs close to midfield on their possession. An 18-yard pass to Eddie Kennison on the next play put the Chiefs at the Oakland 38. Kolby Smith carried on the next four plays. He gained 22 yards, putting the Chiefs at the 16. The Chiefs pulled Smith in favor of Gilbert Harris, a former practice squad player who dropped a pass and fumbled out of bounds. Then settled for the field goal.

Zach Miller fumbled after catching a short pass on Oakland’s possession and Benny Sapp recovered for the Chiefs at the Raiders’ 26. After John Welbourn was penalized for holding, Smith dropped two short passes and the Chiefs punted, downing it at the Oakland 5.

Three runs allowed the Raiders to pick up a first down, but they eventually punted shortly before halftime.

Second quarter scoring:

Oak: FG Janikowski 54; 6 plays, 11ards, 2:56 drive time, 10:39 remaining.

KC: FG Rayner 30; 11 plays, 68 yards, 5:09 drive time, 5:30 remaining.

First quarter:

Brodie Croyle wasted little time throwing his first interception as a starting quarterback at Arrowhead Stadium. Safety Michael Huff jumped into the passing lane when Croyle tried to get the ball to Dwayne Bowe and his interception gave the Raiders the ball at the Kansas City 26. But the Chiefs held and forced the field goal.

Thanks in large part to Kolby Smith’s 19-yard run on fourth and one, the Chiefs moved into field-goal range. Then his 16-yard run put the Chiefs at the Oakland 12. Smith finished the drive with his TD run. He had 55 yards on the drive.

First quarter scoring:
