Tyreek Hill delivered a 78-yard punt return for the Chiefs after fans were chanting his name in anticipation of a big play. "I don't think I've ever seen anything like what happened tonight, that one scene," quarterback Alex Smith said "I've never seen a stadium chant a name like that and then he houses it. It gave me chills."

Since 2001, teams with a minus-3 turnover differential have a .094 winning percentage. The Chiefs won tonight with a minus-3 differential, thanks to a defense that allowed just six points off turnovers.

Raiders QB Derek Carr threw for 117 yards, the 2nd-fewest in a game by a QB with at least 40 attempts. The Elias Sports Bureau notes that the record of 110 was set by Jesse Palmer for the Giants against the Panthers in 2003. It was the last game of Palmer's career.

Derek Carr's four fantasy points tonight are his third-fewest in a game in his career (2, 2014 Week 13 and 2015 Week 1). Five of his 15 worst single-game point totals have now come against the Chiefs.

NFL 

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Raiders missed multiple opportunities tonight to put points on the board, but give credit to the Chiefs and that defensive game plan, too. The Kansas City secondary was aggressive. A lot of press-man. Technique and physicality. Challenge the release. Derek Carr finished with only 117 yards on 17-of-41 passing. Chiefs get the 21-13 win at Arrowhead.

NFL 

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Chiefs beat Raiders 21-13 to kick off NFL Week 14. The ViewFromVegas is they also covered as 3.5-point home favorites and the game stayed under the betting total of 46 points. Both teams are 10-3 and tied atop the AFC West with three games left, but the Chiefs hold the tiebreaker as they swept the season series.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

The Raiders and/or Derek Carr decided to play jump ball with the Chiefs' active and playmaking defensive backs on third and fourth downs. They chose poorly. Low percentage plays on must-have downs are a bad combination.

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.
