Andy Reid has lost only twice following a bye week in his coaching career, and his success continued Sunday as the Kansas City Chiefs ended the Oakland Raiders' three-game win streak with a 26-10 win on the road.
Missing Latavius Murray (toe) for a second consecutive week, Oakland's rookie running backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard failed to take advantage of a Chiefs defense that entered with the fourth-worst rushing defense, combining for just 57 rushing yards.
Instead it was the Chiefs pounding it on the ground as wet conditions and wind made play at Oakland Coliseum tough on both kickers and runners.
Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos missed a field-goal attempt and an extra point, while Sebastian Janikowski also missed a field-goal attempt. The wet football caused problems for Raiders QB Derek Carr, who fumbled twice, losing one in the fourth quarter.
Gone are the days of Jamaal Charles easing himself into the Chiefs offense. The explosive back returned for his first real action since tearing his ACL in October of last season. Charles finished with 33 yards and his first touchdown since September 2015. Spencer Ware led the Chiefs with 131 yards on 24 carries as the Chiefs rushed for 183 yards and a team with three touchdowns, including this rush from 346-pound defensive lineman Dontari Poe.
