Once again, the Oakland Raiders flew home from Arrowhead Stadium without a win in tow.
What has become an increasingly challenging place for the Silver and Black to win stayed that way Sunday, as Patrick Mahomes and Co., handled business, beating the Raiders 40-9.
Following back-to-back losses, Head Coach Jon Gruden’s team now sits at 6-6, with a Week 14 clash against the Tennessee Titans coming up quickly, the Raiders will have to regroup in a hurry to stay in the AFC playoff hunt.
However, before we shift focus to the Titans; let’s take a look back at the playtime percentages from Sunday’s loss, and see what we can learn from the numbers.

Josh Jacobs reaches yet another milestone – Stop me if you’ve heard this before; Josh Jacobs broke another Raiders’ record Sunday afternoon. Well, such was the case for the All-World rookie, as he became the first rookie in franchise history to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark in a season. When all was said and done, Jacobs played 34 offensive snaps (57%) against the Chiefs, and carried the ball 17 times for 104 yards. Through 12 games, Jacobs has 1,061 yards and seven touchdowns.
Darren Waller hits the century mark – Josh Jacobs aside, there really weren’t a ton of offensive highlights against the Chiefs, but the play of Darren Waller was no doubt one. The athletic tight end played 55 offensive snaps (92%) Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium, and hauled in a team-high seven receptions for 100 yards. Waller’s 100-yard day was his third such day of 2019.
The o-line goes the distance – Once again, the Silver and Black’s starting offensive line (Miller, Incognito, Hudson, Jackson and Brown) played every offensive snap (60) in the Week 13 clash against the Chiefs. Not only did the big fellas up front help spring Josh Jacobs and the running backs, but they held up in pass protection as well, surrendering just a pair of sacks to the Kansas City defense.
Maxx Crosby keeps the hot streak alive – I don’t know if there is any Raiders’ defender consistently playing at a higher level right now than Maxx Crosby. While the dynamic rookie didn’t technically tally a sack against the Chiefs, he did fill up the stat sheet once again. Crosby played 64 snaps (96%) Sunday afternoon, and totaled four tackles, two tackles for loss, and was in Mahomes’ face for much of the Week 13 battle.
Mo Hurst gets Mahomes – The Raiders totaled one sack Sunday afternoon, and it belonged to second-year lineman Mo Hurst, giving him 3.5 total on the year. When the final whistle blew, Hurst had played 33 defensive snaps (52%), and had recorded the aforementioned sack as well as one tackle and one quarterback hit.
Trayvon Mullen holds up – Yes, I know the Raiders surrendered 40 points to the Chiefs on Sunday, but I really think the play of the rookie cornerback was a positive takeaway from the Week 13 match at Arrowhead. Mullen played every defensive snap save one (66), and finished his day with two tackles, two passes defensed, and he really should have gotten credit for his second interception of the year as well.
