Raiders snap Chiefs long no turnover streak and other superlatives

One of the more interesting stats coming into this game for the Chiefs was their streak of games without committing a turnover on offense. They had won 5-straight games in large part due to having no turnovers in any of those games. That streak ended Sunday in the first half against the Raiders.

Not surprisingly, it was Charles Woodson who near single-handedly ended that streak. Not only was he in on the turnover that broke the streak, but he did it twice.

The turnover that snapped the streak was a fumble by Jeremy Maclin on the first play of the second quarter. Woodson recovered it to give the Raiders the ball near midfield. Later in the second quarter, tight end Travis Kelce caught a pass over the middle, and Woodson came over and flat out took the ball right out of his arms, and returned it 38 yards and set up the Raiders' second touchdown just before half time.

This game was a milestone of sorts for Woodson. It was his 250th NFL game. That's the most of any active defensive player and tied with former Raiders punter Shane Lechler for the fourth most among all active players.

Woodson now has 34 career forced fumbles and 15 fumble recoveries, with 10 coming as a Raider.

Here are a few other milestones and superlatives in the Raiders' 34-20 loss Sunday against the Chiefs:

Derek Carr had a rough fourth quarter to say the least; throwing three interceptions, the most of his career. But amidst those picks, he also set some marks.

Carr passed 3,000 yards on the season, making him the eighth ever NFL quarterback with 3,000 passing yards in each of his first two seasons.

He also becomes the fifth quarterback with 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons, joining Andy Dalton, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.

Carr completed passes to 11 different receivers in Sunday's game, marking a new season high. The Raiders have completed passes to at least 10 different receivers four times this season.

Carr threw his 11th touchdown pass of 25-or-more yards this season to WR Michael Crabtree in the second quarter, giving him the most 25-yard touchdowns in the NFL.

Michael Crabtree is the first Raiders player with at least four receptions in 12 straight games to begin a season. He had five in this game.

Amari Cooper's 69 yards receiving put him at 920 yards on the season. He is the third rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger with 900 yards through his team's first 12 games (Anquan Boldin in 2003 and Randy Moss in 1998).

DE Khalil Mack contributed on three of the team's four sacks today, two of them assisted, giving him two total sacks on the afternoon. Altogether, Mack finished with a team-high eight tackles (five solo), two sacks, two tackles for loss and three quarterback hits, according to unofficial press box statistics.

Mack now has 9.0 sacks on the season, the most by a Raider since 2010 (Kamerion Whimbley, 9.0).

Clive Walford's five receptions for 53 yards are the most catches and yards for him in the rookie's career.

Marquette King saw each of his first three punts pin Kansas City inside its own 10-yard line. He finished the game with four punts for 39.5 yarders per punt, three punts inside the Chiefs' 20-yard line and a 52-yard long.
