The stadium was nearly empty in the 4th quarter of a glorified practice game against an LA team that didn't really want to play . . . Here's the roundup for this contest that wasn't . . .
Kansas City AFC Champ Chiefs
The 8-4 Chiefs are two games ahead of the 6-6 and second-place Raiders in the AFC West. They swept the season series, having also won in September when the teams played in Oakland.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Patrick Mahomes threw for a touchdown and ran for a touchdown, Juan Thornhill returned a pick 46 yards for another score, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the bumbling Oakland Raiders 40-9 on Sunday to seize control of the AFC West.
Cringe In Kansas City
The Oakland Raiders had a chance to at least avoid heading into halftime without points when kicker Daniel Carlson lined up for a 44-yard field goal. But of course, the football gods are cruel and denied them the three points. In fact, they tormented the Raiders.
Compulsive Gamblers Hate The Kansas City Chiefs
The late-afternoon matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders got out of hand quite quickly as the Chiefs gave their divisional rivals the business. Most casual viewers turned off the game because, well, why would you keep watching? Some fans, however, had some money on the final score.
Tired Of Winning
There was a lot riding on this game for both the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, but clearly the Raiders didn't think so. The Chiefs rolled the black and silver in this one, proving once again that they're the best in the AFC West.
And so . . .
Fanboys might celebrate this victory but the entire contest was mostly a display in mediocrity that might or might not foreshadow that team's playoff future . . .
