When you're trying to come back from a 14-7 fourth quarter deficit, it usually helps when you run plays that gain positive yardage. Unfortunately for the Raiders, they had some trouble doing that against Kansas City.

The Raiders started a fourth quarter drive at their own 18-yard-line and moved forward 32-yards before things went sour.

On first-and-10 from the 50, the Raiders were called for a 10-yard holding penalty. On first-and-20, Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor was sacked for a 12-yard loss.

On second-and-32, the Raiders were called for a five-yard delay of game penalty. Things didn't get much better after that either. On second-and-37, Pryor was sacked for an 11-yard loss to make it third-and-48.

The Raiders actually had something positive happen on third down: they didn't lose any yards. Mainly because Pryor threw an incomplete pass.

To add insult to injury, on fourth-and-48 punter Marquette King jacked a 46-yard punt. The kick didn't even make it past the first down marker.

The Chiefs went on to win the game 24-7, improving Kansas City's record to 6-0.
