The Raiders trail 21-3 after a putrid first half that saw them turn the ball over fourtimes and give up easy points to the Chiefs, who are playing for the top seed in the AFC.

The bright spot for the Raiders has been the tough running of Doug Martin, who despite losing a fumble has 83 yards on 16 carries and has been trucking Chiefs players. Derek Carr has 114 yards passing but two costly interceptions.

Pat Mahomes threw an interception to Gareon Conley just before halftime, but otherwise is 10/17 for 148 yards and a TD pass to Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs haven’t been able to run very much, and have only 19 yards rushing in the half against what has suddenly become a pretty good defense against the rush in the last couple weeks.

Can Oakland make it a game in the second half and cut down on mistakes? Let’s find out!
