Chiefs can't stop Raiders when it matters

(TSX / STATS) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid needed his pass defense to come up with just one play at the end of Thursday night's 31-30 loss to Oakland and, despite four cracks at denying Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, the defense failed each and every time.

"It came down to a few plays and we've all got to do better, starting with me putting our guys in position to make plays," Reid said. "When you're given that opportunity, then you've got to make it."

The Chiefs surrendered 505 yards to the Raiders. Carr led the way with 417 yards through the air on 29-of-52 passing along with three touchdowns and he wasn't sacked. The secondary failed to make stops at the end of the game, but failure in the secondary haunted the Chiefs all night long.
