Raiders up 13-6 at halftime, Chiefs still haven’t led

Carson Palmer AP

The Chiefs haven’t led this season.

And at this point, it’s a decent bet they may not.

After losing “starting” quarterback Brady Quinn to a head injury, former starter Matt Cassel led them to a pair of field goal drives which felt like progress, considering it was 6-6 late in the first half.

But then Javier Arenas fumbled an attempted fair catch just before halftime, giving the Raiders a short field.

Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer made them pay three plays later, hitting Denarius Moore for a quick touchdown and a 13-6 lead at the break.

The Chiefs lead the league in turnovers, and have allowed 86 points off those givebacks (10 today). Teams don’t get to be 1-5 by accident.

    jetropolitans – They haven’t led for a single second of a game, technically. They tied a game to send it to overtime and won in overtime. So they’ve “led,” they just haven’t led for a technical second.

    One team has a QB and the other doesn’t.

    That was PI on Routt on the first play from scrimmage. But all the talking heads saw was a chance to rail on DHB without cause.
