NFL roundup -- Chiefs top Raiders as fans break record

Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Andy Reid swore he could feel the ground shake.

Alex Smith couldn't hear himself talking to his teammates. Dwayne Bowe said the deafening din inside Arrowhead Stadium reminded him of college.

Just imagine what it must have been like for the Oakland Raiders.

Buoyed by the loudest crowd to attend an outdoor sporting event, the unbeaten Chiefs took advantage of three second-half interceptions thrown by Terrelle Pryor to pull away for a 24-7 victory Sunday.

It was the first time in seven meetings at Arrowhead Stadium that the Chiefs (6-0) had beaten the Raiders (2-4), and it allowed them to press on with the second-best start in franchise history.

The Chiefs won their first nine games during the 2003 season.

"Every win is a great win, and when you can win with a crowd like this, it makes it even better," Reid said. "That was loud, real loud. The ground was shaking."

According to an official from Guinness World Records, the volume reached 137.5 decibels in the closing minutes of the game, breaking the record of 136.6 set by Seahawks fans earlier this year.

"I was sitting there on the sideline and I could tell, it's a hard environment to execute in," said Smith, who threw for just 128 yards but didn't make any big mistakes. "It was pretty special."

It wouldn't have been nearly as special without a win.

Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns, and the Chiefs had 10 sacks while ending a three-game skid to the Raiders (2-4). They also held Darren McFadden, a thorn in their side, to 52 yards rushing.

"We were right there in the game, and we were punching back and forth," said Pryor, who threw for 216 yards and a touchdown. "I lost the game for us."

That's because the Chiefs turned his three interceptions into 17 points. The first led to Charles' go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, the second resulted in Ryan Succop's 33-yard field in the fourth quarter and Husain Abdullah returned the final one 44 yards for a score with 1:35 left.

Part of the problem, Pryor said, was the combination of crowd noise and a patchwork offensive line.

On one possession, Pryor was twice whistled for delay of game penalties because third-string center Mike Brisiel couldn't hear him. Oakland also had a false start on the same drive, which ended in a punt.

The Raiders finished with 11 penalties for 68 yards.

"It's a tough environment, but we've got to be mentally strong as a team," Pryor said. "I know sometimes I let it get away from me with the delay of game. Like I said, it's experience."

Oakland actually struck first in the second quarter when Denarius Moore beat Chiefs defensive back Marcus Cooper, starting in place of the injured Brandon Flowers, on a quick slant over the middle. Moore caught the pass from Pryor in stride and went 39 yards for the touchdown.

It remained 7-0 until the waning minutes of the first half, when the Chiefs took over at the Oakland 45. Pass interference on the Raiders' D.J. Hayden on third-and-10 kept the drive alive, and Charles squirmed the 7 yards for the tying score with 1:06 left.

The Chiefs were poised to take the lead early in the third quarter, but Hayden stripped Donnie Avery of the ball inside the Oakland 10 and Charles Woodson recovered it. But the Raiders gave it right back when Kansas City brought a blitz and Pryor lobbed a pass that Quintin Demps picked off.

PATRIOTS 30, SAINTS 27

The visiting Saints (5-1) had taken a 24-23 lead with 3:29 remaining on Drew Brees' 34-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills, but the Patriots survived an interception by Keenan Lewis on their first snap after Garrett Hartley's 39-yard field goal made it 27-23.

Brady started the winning drive with completions of 23 yards to Julian Edelman, 15 to Austin Collie and 6 to Aaron Dobson. But he threw two incompletions before connecting with Collie for a 9-yard gain on fourth down and a first down at the 17.

Then came the winning throw into the left corner of the end zone.

"I think the thing is there's a lot of character and mental toughness and that really showed," Brady said. "We were down but not out."

PACKERS 19, RAVENS 17

At Baltimore, the Packers (3-2) lost receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones to leg injuries, but survived as Aaron Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson and Mason Crosby kicked four field goals.

Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers' first road win of the season.

The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (3-3) had won 13 straight at home against NFC foes. But even without injured linebacker Clay Matthews, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and had five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk.

BENGALS 27, BILLS 24, OT

Mike Nugent's 43-yard field goal with 6:44 left in overtime won it after he missed a 34-yarder in regulation.

Brandon Tate's 29-yard punt return to the Bills 33 set up the decisive score. Andy Dalton went 26 of 40 for 337 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception as the Bengals (4-2) got their first road win of the season.

The Bills (2-4) were led by quarterback Thad Lewis, starting in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Lewis went 19 of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns after being promoted off the practice squad last week. Both touchdown passes came in the fourth quarter, including a 40-yarder to Marquise Goodwin with 1:08 remaining.

SEAHAWKS 20, TITANS 13

At Seattle, Marshawn Lynch ran for two touchdowns and had 155 all-purpose yards, and Richard Sherman came up with his third interception of the season.

Seattle (5-1) won its 11th straight at home despite a long list of mistakes that allowed the Titans (3-3) to hang around into the fourth. There was a careless turnover, missed defensive assignments and a comical muffed field goal attempt that led to the Titans' only touchdown on the final play of the first half.

49ERS 32, CARDINALS 20

At San Francisco, Vernon Davis caught touchdown passes of 61 and 35 yards and finished with a career-best 180 yards receiving, leading San Francisco to its third straight victory.

Colin Kaepernick threw for 252 yards and Frank Gore ran for 101 yards on 25 carries. Kendall Hunter ran for a 6-yard touchdown that sealed it for the 49ers (4-2). Rookie safety Eric Reid made his team-leading third interception and also recovered a fumble as San Francisco forced four turnovers for the second straight game.

Arizona (3-3) lost defensive end Calais Campbell to an apparent right leg injury late in the game.

COWBOYS 31, REDSKINS 16

Dwayne Harris returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown and set up another score with a 90-yard kickoff return as the Cowboys handed Robert Griffin III his first loss in his home state.

The Cowboys (3-3) gave owner Jerry Jones a win on his 71st birthday against the archrival Redskins (1-4).

Tony Romo had just 170 yards passing a week after getting 506 in a 51-48 loss to Denver.

Dallas lost running back DeMarco Murray and defensive end DeMarcus Ware with injuries: Murray left in the second quarter with a sprained left knee, and Ware had a right quadriceps injury.

RAMS 38, TEXANS 13

At Houston, the Texans' woes continued as they dropped their fourth straight. Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, St. Louis added a score on defense and one on special teams to move to 3-3.

Alec Ogletree took an interception by T.J. Yates 98 yards for a touchdown. Yates was in after Matt Schaub sustained an apparent right ankle injury.

Schaub didn't have a turnover after throwing six interceptions, three of them returned for touchdowns in the past three games.

But several other Texans had key gaffes as preseason Super Bowl hopeful Houston (2-4) lost its fourth straight game.

PANTHERS 35, VIKINGS 10

At Minneapolis, Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score.

Adrian Peterson finished with 62 yards on 10 carries and 21 yards on three receptions as the Vikings (1-4) trailed the whole game. The NFL MVP learned Friday that a 2-year-old son of his died in South Dakota of injuries from alleged abuse.

"Anything bad, I try to take good from it," he said. "That's the way I approach life in all situations. I never thought about not playing."

Matt Cassel threw two interceptions, both to Mike Mitchell, and the Panthers (2-3) responded each time with a touchdown.

EAGLES 31

BUCCANEERS 20

At Tampa, Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth. Starting for the injured Michael Vick, Foles finished a long first-quarter scoring drive with a 4-yard run and threw TD passes of 12 and 36 yards to DeSean Jackson, and 47 yards to Riley Cooper.

Foles was 1-5 as a rookie a year ago, with that victory also coming at Tampa Bay (0-5).

LeSean McCoy rushed for 116 yards and had 55 yards on two receptions for Philadelphia (3-3).

STEELERS 19, JETS 6

Pittsburgh (1-4) got its first victory, coming back from the bye to earn the 600th in franchise history, including the postseason, the fourth team to reach the milestone.

That the visiting Steelers did it against the Jets (3-3) is no surprise: Pittsburgh is 17-4 vs. New York in the regular season.

Geno Smith was intercepted twice by a Steelers defense that entered the game as the only team in the league without a takeaway.

LIONS 31, BROWNS 17

At Cleveland, Matthew Stafford threw three of his four touchdown passes in the second half, rallying Detroit.

The Lions (4-2) outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half, sealing their win when Stafford hooked up with tight end Joseph Fauria with 2:01 left. Fauria caught three TD passes for the Lions.

The Browns (3-3) had their chances at a comeback end when quarterback Brandon Weeden's baffling shovel pass with 4:36 left was intercepted by linebacker DeAndre Levy.

Lions running back Reggie Bush finished with 135 total yards, 121 in the second half.
