In a game where both starting quarterbacks have been under strong pass-rush pressure, the underdog Raiders scored first at Kansas City.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor connected with wideout Denarius Moore on a 39-yard touchdown to give Oakland a 7-0 lead with 8:47 left in the second quarter.

Pryor has been sacked three times, as has Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. The Chiefs’ offense has especially struggled, with Smith completing just five of his first 14 attempts for 52 yards.
