Larry Johnson. He rushed for 112 yards in 24 carries and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Johnson also had a season-long 54-yard run in the third period.
There were several. The Raiders continued to hurt themselves with mistakes, including committing a penalty downfield after punter Shane Lechler was run into, which would have given the Raiders a first down. The offensive line again deserves mention. The running game, so mighty only recently, was stuffed again, held to 55 yards.
Never miss a local story.
Raiders quarterback Daunte Culpepper was intercepted by Jarrad Page in the final minute, and the Chiefs beat the Raiders for the ninth time in a row.

THEY SAID IT
"I wish I could have that back, but I can't, so I've just got to learn from that. I thought we could go down and win the game."
-- Culpepper, on his clinching interception
"As bad as our offensive performance was, with our defense playing the way it did and not turning the ball over, we had a chance to win."
-- Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin
"It's one of those things where as a player you look back and say to yourself '... wish we would have kicked a field goal. ... It's one of those things were if you don't get the first down, you don't get points out of the drive, Kiff looks like a bad coach."
-- Raiders running back LaMont Jordan, who was stopped on fourth down in the second quarter at the Kansas City 17-yard line
The Raiders had six possessions in the first half. The results: Five punts and a stop for no gain on fourth and 1 from the Kansas City 17-yard line. How do their fans maintain their sanity?
