Bracketology: Kentucky (for now) takes a dip

Big Blue Nation didn't like losing at home to UCLA. It's probably fair to say it won't like falling from a No. 1 seed -- or being matched up against a team that already knocked off a major power this season.

Travis Kelce reached 100 receiving yards in each of his last four games. According to Elias, he joins Tony Gonzalez (Chiefs, 2000) & Jimmy Graham (Saints, 2011 & 2013) as the only other tight ends in the last 50 years with four consecutive such games.

Bad snap? Bad hold? Either way, the Raiders could not take advantage of their third takeaway of the game as Marquette King dropped the inside snap on a Sebastian Janikowski field-goal attempt. King has not had a good night, getting mocked by Travis Kelce after Tyreek Hill's 78-yard punt return for a TD.

Khalil Mack has recorded a sack in 8 straight games. According to Elias, that's tied for the longest streak by a Raider (Lance Johnstone in 1998) since sacks became official in 1982.

As anti-climactic as it was - replay had to confirm that Latavius Murray crossed the goal line, while Murray was already bundled up on the bench - Murray tied Hall of Famer Marcus Allen for third-most rushing TDs in franchise history with his 12th score, just before halftime. Pete Banaszak had 16 rushing TDs in 1975 and Allen had 13 in 1984.

The Spurs are 814-815 all-time on the road, and can get to .500 win a victory here over the Chicago Bulls. San Antonio pulled that off, it would be the only NBA franchise currently at .500 or better on the road all-time, per Elias.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has talked all season long of "complementary" football, that is, when all three phases of the game play well at the same time. So what do you call it when all three phases look, well, bad, at the same time? You call it a 21-10 halftime deficit that would have been worse were it not for the offense waking up late and Latavius Murray getting his 12th rushing TD of the season with 14 seconds to play in the half.

Iowa's 78-64 win over rival No. 25 Iowa State is a major victory for a Hawkeyes team that recently lost to Nebraska-Omaha and suffered a lopsided loss to Virginia a few weeks ago. It's the kind of the game Fran McCaffery's team can use to get its season back on track.

Timing is everything. Last offseason, in a crowded free agent market, nobody really wanted Dexter Fowler. He turned down a lowball offer from the Orioles, returned to the Cubs, had the best season of his career and became a Cubs legend. Now he's headed to the Cardinals pending a physical, basically the same player as a year ago except a year older ... and reportedly about $80-$90 million richer.

Chiefs jump to a 21-3 lead over the Raiders on the Tyreek Hill punt return. Ridiculous speed. But I also like Hill's ability to set up the first defender after the catch. That allowed him to make one cut and get up the field.

A hopeful note for Raiders fans from ESPN Stats & Information: Oakland is 3-2 this season in games during which it has trailed by 10 or more points. The Cowboys (2-0) are the only other team with a winning record in that situation. The Raiders, of course, would have to show some life tonight on offense before they can begin thinking about improving on that mark.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith has already thrown for 202 yards (11-of-16) and a TD in the first half vs. the Raiders. Smith is targeting middle of the field routes, finding the matchups with TE Travis Kelce and making off-scheduled plays to move the sticks. Chiefs lead 14-3 over the Raiders.

NFL 

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs have focused in recent weeks on getting tight end Travis Kelce the ball in the open field where he can do what he does best -- run after the catch. Kelce did just that on his 28-yard reception that set up Kansas City's second TD of the game. Kelce, with 59 receiving yards, appears on his way to his fourth straight 100-plus-yard game. The Chiefs lead 14-3 midway through the second quarter.

The Chiefs already have completed five passes of 15 yards or longer. Remember the Raiders are without starting safety Karl Joseph tonight and placed CB D.J. Hayden on IR last week.

Tyreek Hill is fast but speed alone is not what makes him a deep threat. He's also a solid route runner who tracks the ball well. He didn't have much to track on his 36-yard touchdown catch that gives the Chiefs a 7-3 lead. Alex Smith put the ball in an ideal spot.
