The Chiefs looked like the September Chiefs vs. the Raiders

The Chiefs looked like the September Chiefs vs. the Raiders

The Chiefs' beleaguered defense paved the way for a 26-15 win at Arrowhead Stadium that snapped a four-game losing streak and allowed Kansas City to retain at least a share of the AFC West lead.

That was exactly the case in a 26-15 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 14.

Tight end Travis Kelce had seven receptions for 74 yards and Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 75 yards as the Chiefs avenged an earlier one-point loss at Oakland.

Carr, who is now 0-4 in Kansas City, was just 11-of-23 passing for 69 yards with an interception and a passer rating of 36.3 through three quarters.

Carr was 24 of 41 for 211 yards with a touchdown and two picks, a far cry from his performance when the teams met in October. After a game where they got embarrassed by Josh McCown and the New York Jets, fans anxious that the Chiefs defense was no longer a solid unit.

The volatile young star was suspended by coach Andy Reid this week for a series of embarrassing incidents, including the throwing of an official's flag into the stands in the Meadowlands.

So did Kansas City's offense, which produced for the second straight week as offensive coordinator Matt Nagy called the plays. Starters Terrance Mitchell and Steven Nelson played that well.

But Cooper, who was a last-minute decision to play, reinjured his left ankle on a sweep play when Raiders running back DeAndre Washington rolled up on him in the first half. But the Raiders offense couldn't do anything with it once again, going three-and-out and punting the ball back to Smith. Tyreek Hill led three Chiefs receivers with more than 70 yards receiving with 75 yards.

The Chiefs played so well without Peters that it's natural to wonder whether they would be better off without him against the Chargers, even though his one-game suspension is finished. Trainers were seen working on Cooper's left ankle. The Chiefs missed starting C Mitch Morse with a sprained foot.

Chiefs: get another AFC West contender when the Chargers visit Saturday night.
