Glendale Community College product on wrong end of nailbiter

For five weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs and head coach Andy Reid, a Glendale Community College alumnus, were on top of the National Football League with a 5-0 record.

In just five days, not only did the Chiefs fall from the ranks of the unbeaten, but they suffered a second loss.

Kansas City suffered an especially bitter defeat Thursday night, losing on the last play of the game to the host Oakland Raiders, 31-30, in a key AFC West battle.


With the defeat, not only did Kansas City fall to 5-2, but the Chiefs have given up ground to the second-place Denver Broncos (3-2) and third-place Raiders (3-4).

The Raiders moved to the Kansas City one-yard line with eight seconds left.

After one offensive pass interference call versus the Raiders and two holding calls against the Chiefs, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit Michael Crabtree for a game-tying touchdown with no time left. An extra point sealed the victory.

Kansas City has 11 days off before hosting Denver in another pivotal AFC West contest on Oct. 30.
