Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 36-yard field goal 2:13 into overtime giving the Oakland Raiders a 16-13 victory that kept alive their playoff hopes and eliminated the Chiefs from contention. The kick came moments after Kansas City tied the game on a touchdown pass from Kyle Orton to Dwayne Bowe.
The Chiefs were down 13-6 when Dexter McCluster took a screen pass and raced 49 yards inside the Raiders five. Orton hit Bowe with a three yard TD pass to tie the game with 1:02 left in regulation.
After forcing the Raiders to punt, the Chiefs got back into field goal range for Ryan Succop had his 49 yard game winning attempt blocked. Succop also had an attempt blocked at the end of the first half snapping his streak of 21 straight field goals (one shy of the team record.)
Orton finished the game 21 of 36 for 300 yards, but was picked off twice including once in the end zone. That pick came after Bowe dropped a touchdown in the end zone the play before.
Had the Chiefs won, they would have traveled to Denver next week where Orton would have faced his former team with the AFC West title on the line. Instead, the division will come down between the Broncos and Raiders.
