Really, when you look back at Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, it was a single quarter that did the Oakland Raiders in.
Granted, that quarter featured the buzzsaw that is Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense, but nevertheless, the Raiders were able to limit Andy Reid and Co., for three of the four frames Sunday afternoon at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
That said, the Silver and Black still ultimately fell 28-10 to their AFC West rival, and will now have to re-group in a hurry as they prepare to enter the gauntlet of their 2019 schedule.
I’m sure we’ll discuss the next portion of the schedule a lot coming up, but before we do, let’s look at the playtime percentages from Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, and see what we can learn from the numbers.

DC makes history – Derek Carr’s final line wasn’t the most impressive of his career – he completed 23 of 38 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions – but during the course of the game, No. 4 made a little history. Per usual, Carr played all 65 offensive snaps, and on a second quarter pass to tight end Darren Waller, the former Fresno State Bulldog officially passed Ken Stabler to become the franchise’s all-time leading passer. Carr now has 12,196 career passing yards, 118 more than Stabler.
Josh Jacobs keeps running hard – I know that it probably won’t be much solace after Sunday’s result, but it sure looks like the Raiders hit the jackpot with Josh Jacobs. After an impressive regular season debut last week, Jacobs played 30 snaps (46%) against the Chiefs, carrying the ball 12 times for 99 yards when all was said and done. For those of you keeping track at home, the rookie now has 212 all-purpose yards two weeks into his NFL career.
Williams finds the end zone… again – I think Tyrell Williams is going to like playing at the OACC. The former Charger – of both San Diego and Los Angeles – has now officially played two home games as a member of the Silver and Black, and No. 16 has scored in each contest. In Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, Williams played 61 offensive snaps (94%), and hauled in five catches for 46 yards and the aforementioned touchdown.
Whitehead fills up the stat sheet – Once again, Tahir Whitehead was all over the place in the Raiders’ Week 2 clash against the Chiefs. The athletic linebacker played 63 defensive snaps (83%), finishing his afternoon tied for the team high with seven tackles, as well as three tackles for loss.
Mayowa keeps getting home – Through two weeks, it sure looks like Benson Mayowa is having fun wearing the Silver and Black for the second time. With his 1.5 sacks Sunday afternoon, the rangy defensive end now has 3.5 sacks on the season, which ranks him behind just Shaquil Barrett for the top spot in the NFL. While Mayowa played just 18 snaps (24%) against Kansas City, he made the most of his time on the field, totaling three tackles, one tackle for loss, two quarterback hits, one forced fumble, as well as the 1.5 sacks.
Conley returns – After a really scary collision that resulted in him getting carted off against the Denver Broncos, cornerback Gareon Conley returned in a big way Sunday afternoon at the OACC. Conley earned the start against Kansas City, playing 74 snaps (97%), and finished his day with three total tackles.
