The 10 sacks were a factor in the game. The interceptions made the difference.

The Chiefs (6-0) and Raiders were tied 7-all in the third quarter when Pryor threw the first of his picks, a rainbow off his back foot into the middle of the field. Jamaal Charles finished off the drive with his second touchdown run to give Kansas City its first lead of the game.

The second interception came as the Raiders (2-4) were trying to drive for a tying score, and this time the Chiefs' Ryan Succop kicked a 33-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.

Husain Abdullah returned the final pick 44 yards for a touchdown with 1:35 left in the game.

"We were right there in the game and we were punching back and forth," Pryor said. "We turned the ball over, and like I said, I lost the game for us. I'm going to fall a lot, but I'm going to get up. That's how it is. I'm going to get up and I'm going to come swinging."
