If you bet the under on Sunday's Kansas City Chiefs-Oakland Raiders game, our condolences are with you.

The Chiefs answered any worries with a dominant win over the Raiders on Sunday, giving them a two-game lead heading into the final month of the season. This week, the Raiders take on the Chiefs with a chance to draw even with the Chiefs.

Oakland had a strong first quarter from running back Josh Jacobs (eight carries for 55 yards), but three first half turnovers doomed the Raiders. He also threw an interception to Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill, who returned the pass 46 yards for the score to give Kansas City a commanding 21-0 lead with 3:42 left in the second quarter, which is all the Chiefs needed to take total control of the game. Thornhill also stuffed a Raiders fourth-and-short play in the second quarter by tackling wide receiver Trevor Davis.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was on his way back to Downing Street and Basu said he would be giving him a full briefing. The City of London police, the force responsible for the business district, urged people to stay away from the area.

Carr, 28, in the losing effort yesterday to division rival Chiefs, threw 20/30 for 222 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and one fumble. Carr is now 2-10 in his career against Kansas City.

Prior to the bye week, the Chiefs played the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football and Mahomes wasn't his usual self in that game either, going 19 of 32 for 182 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while getting sacked once.

For Chiefs fans, winning the game was good. The reigning MVP looked 100 percent back from his knee injury suffered on October 17, rushing for a 13-yard touchdown to give Kansas City a 14-0 lead in the second quarter. That just shows how far the defense has come this year and how even when the Chiefs' MVP quarterback isn't having his best day, the team can stay in the game and keep the team afloat.
