The Chiefs wasted the chance Thursday night to command the AFC West race.

Raiders win thriller against Chiefs (1:48)

Chiefs coach Andy Reid defended Marcus Peters after the cornerback was penalized for unnecessary roughness for his hit on Oakland quarterback Derek Carr. “He's a runner,'' Reid said of Carr. “That was a QB draw play. Once you do that you're declared a runner until that whistle blows. He was playing and I'm not going to knock him for that . . . Once he's (running), he's no different than a running back. That's the rule.''

Smart call on the game-winner for the Raiders. Move the pocket with Derek Carr and target Michael Crabtree in the end zone. And how about the throw from Carr? Low and to the outside. Excellent ball placement. The DB in coverage can't make that play.
