Just in case you missed the Oakland Raiders vs Pittsburgh Steelers game, you missed out on DE Richard Seymour punching Big Ben Roethliberger’s lights out!! On Pittsburgh’s 3rd TD of the game, Big Ben celebrated with his teammates and had some words to say to Seymour, Seymour must not have enjoyed the little words that he was able to hear, because he dropped Big Ben with an open-hand punch to the throat. Isn’t this just Raider football?!? Just a bunch of criminals on the field with a bunch of criminals applauding that play?!?! Sure, everyone would love to get a swing at Big Ben, but leave it to a Raider player to lay him out!

The Raiders were frustrated at the poor play overall by the team. The offense struggled to move the ball on the Pittsburgh defense finishing the game with 182 total yards of offense and only 3 points on the board. The defense allowed 431 yards of offense and 35 points for the Steelers. Starting Raider QB Jason Campbell looked like he was playing scared, fearing the Steelers blitzes on him. He was replaced in the game for Bruce Gradkowski who was equally ineffective.

The Raiders now have a record of 5-5 and the Chargers have the opportunity to equal that record tomorrow night on Monday Night Football. The Raiders will have a home game next week against the Miami Dolphins. Oakland Raiders 3 – Pittsburgh Steelers 35

Arizona Cardinals vs Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs regained sole possession of first place with their victory over the Arizona Cardinals today. Matt Cassel led his team to the victory with 2 TD passes to Dwayne Bowe and Thomas Jones also added 2 TDs in the game. Dwayne Bowe has become a prime time receiver for the Chiefs catching a TD in his 6th straight game of the season.

The Chiefs improved to 5-0 at home this season and now hold a record of 6-4 on the season. Their next opponent will be the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle. Hopefully they can continue their road woes in week 12. The Chargers will need to keep pace with the Chiefs on Monday Night with a victory over the Broncos. The Chargers cannot afford to fall to 2 games behind the Chiefs with an upcoming road game at the Indianapolis Colts.
