After back-to-back games on the road, the Oakland Raiders returned home to face the Kansas City Chiefs in a Week 13 meeting at O.co Coliseum.
The Raiders fell to the division rival Chiefs 34-20, dropping their overall record to 5-7 with four games left on the schedule.
Next up for the Silver and Black is another division game as they travel to Colorado to take on the Denver Broncos Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Before we fully shift our focus to the Broncos; let's take a look back at who played against the Chiefs and for how many snaps, and see what we can learn from taking a closer look at the numbers.
Clive Walford Paces The Tight Ends– After a quiet start to his rookie campaign in Oakland, the rookie tight end from Miami has really come on as of late for the Raiders. While he only played 28 snaps (35%) in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, he caught all 5 passes intended for him, for 53 yards and provided yet another offensive weapon for quarterback Derek Carr.
Michael Crabtree Finds The End Zone, Again –The veteran wide receiver played 64 snaps (81%)
against the Chiefs and was tied for the team lead with 5 receptions. He also secured his 7th receiving touchdown of the year and became the third Raider since 2005 with at least 7 receiving touchdowns in a season (Randy Moss in 2005, Denarius Moore in 2012).
Olawale Proves Effective Yet Again– In addition to his 19 special teams snaps (70%), the punishing fullback also played 12 snaps (15%) on offense. Although he played sparingly on the offensive side of the football, Olawale was once again effective, carrying the ball twice for 16 yards (8.0 avg.) and also hauling in one pass as well.
Mack Has A Monster Game– Somewhat lost in the disappointment of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs is the stellar play of defensive end Khalil Mack. He played 48 snaps (94%), totaling 8 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 tackles for loss and 3 quarterback hits.
Woodson Hits Another Milestone **– Sunday's game at O.co Coliseum marked the 250th in Charles Woodson's Hall of Fame career. Woodson's play didn't disappoint either as played 50 snaps (98%), recording 5 total tackles, a forced a fumble and 2 fumble recoveries against the Chiefs. Not a bad day at the office for the 39-year-old.
Mario Edwards Jr Active Against The Chiefs– The rookie from Florida State enjoyed another quality outing against the Chiefs Sunday afternoon. When all was said and done he played 48 snaps (94%), recording 1 sack, 1 tackle for loss and 1 quarterback hit.
