Oakland-Kansas City halftime notes

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

  • Allowing the clock to run out at the Oakland 8-yard line at the end of the half is inexcusable. With the score tied at 3-3, Kansas City needed to get points. That could really come back to bite Kansas City in the second half.

  • Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell has is having an awful game. He has completed 3 of 12 pass attempts.

  • Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel yards just 75 yards passing, but he is doing a decent job leading Kansas City down the field.

  • New Kansas City receiver Bobby Wade is giving the Chiefs a spark. He has three catches in his Kansas City debut.

  • Oakland linebackers Kirk Morrison and Thames Howard have combined for 15 tackles.
