What a game we have going on right now in Oakland between the Kansas City Chiefs and the home team Raiders!

Oakland was once down 21-3 during the first quarter of today’s game and are now within four points of one of the top teams in the conference. Starting quarterback Matt McGloin is starting to get things moving and moving fast.

Most importantly, their defense hasn’t panicked just yet despite allowing 35 points and a huge game by running back Jamaal Charles. The score was set up by a sack and strip on Alex Smith.

McGloin connected with tight end Mychal Rivera to bring this team closer to the Chiefs. I thought the Chiefs had this game in the bag after their first quarter performance, but you can never really count a team out in this league no matter what the score happens to be.

We’ve seen some amazing come backs, but this will be a highlight of the day considering who it was against.
