Thursday Night Recap: Chiefs Beat Raiders, 21-13
Tyreek Hill scored two touchdowns and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Oakland Raiders, 21-13, on Thursday night. Kansas City (10-3) seized control of the AFC West with the win.
The Chiefs broke out to a 21-3 lead before halftime. Oakland (10-3) never hit its stride as quarterback Derek Carr finished 17 of 41 for 117 yards passing.
Alex Smith passed for 261 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The eventual game-winning score was Hill’s 78-yard punt return for a touchdown.
The Raiders had a chance to rally, but they couldn’t convert two Smith turnovers into touchdowns early in the second half. As a result, they may not host a home playoff game should they qualify for the postseason.
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had five catches for 101 yards.
