Join The Internet Is In America on Sunday, Oct. 16, for our LIVE play-by-play (well, more like possession-by-possession, but that shit is deathly for SEO) coverage of week 6's Raiders vs. Chiefs game. The shenanigans begin at 4 p.m. eastern time (with updates every commercial break) so be sure to bookmark this shit before kickoff. And as always, do us and yourselves a kindness and let all your fellow Raiders fans know what we're up to by posting links to our coverage on your social media pages. Hey, we're all in this together, remember (#silverandblacklivesmatter)...12:36 p.m. - OK, I promise, unlike last week's aborted #SDvsOAK coverage, I won't accidentally delete the whole damn blog at the beginning of the third quarter. Like, super duper promise, for real, ya'll.
12:38 p.m. - A whole lot of Raiders are questionable for today's outing, including Taiwan Jones, Matt McCants Malcolm Smith and Clive Walord. We know for sure Latavius Murray isn't suiting up for the game.
12:39 p.m. - Meanwhile, the only noticeable scratch for the Chiefs is linebacker Justin Houston.
12:40 p.m. - Vegas has K.C. as a -2 point favorite, with a 46 over/under. Interestingly, the Raiders have covered the spread twice this season as underdog. And oh yeah, they also won both of those contests.
2:52 p.m. - All right, heads up folks. Mrs. Internet Is In America hasn't made the grocery store rounds yet, which means the likelihood of me being back in time for the 4 p.m. start is about negative zero percent. All that to say? I'll get to writin' when I get to writin'.
4:53 p.m. - All right, I am back in. The score is knotted up 7-7 at the 10 minute mark of the second quarter.
4:54 p.m. - Charles gets a good block and picks up a 16-yard run. K.C is now at the OAK 35.
4:55 p.m. - And a 26-yard pick up puts Kansas City right at the OAK 5.
4:56 p.m. - Charles runs it up the gut for a six-yard touchdown run. And Santos misses the PAT. Chiefs still lead it, 13-7.
4:58 p.m. - Raiders take over around their own 25. Cooper gains 12 and a new set of downs.
5:01 p.m. - Richard with a six, maybe seven yard run.
5:02 p.m. - Third and seven coming up. And Cooper takes it down to the K.C. 37 on a 24-yard pick up. And now the Chiefs are challenging that Cooper stepped out of bounds.
5:05 p.m. - The refs say it is indeed a catch and it costs Kansas City a timeout.
5:07 p.m. - Holmes gets eight yards on a nice catch and run.
5:08 p.m. - The back gets crushed behind the line for a considerable loss.
5:09 p.m. - Third and five. Roberts bobbles away the ball a yard shy of moving the chains. They go for it on fourth and five. Carr has to chuck it out of bounds.
5:11 p.m. - Chiefs take over at their own 32. The Chiefs get about three yards on the run.
5:12 p.m. - A 38-yard pick up for K.C. Amerson totally got torched on that one.
5:13 p.m. - There's the two minute warning.
5:14 p.m. - Charles tripped up, he gets about three on the play.
5:16 p.m. - Second and 7 at the OAK 30. The receiver is stopped shy of the first down marker.

5:20 p.m. - Cooper with another pick up in Chiefs' territory.
5:21 p.m. - Walford takes it well within field goal range. Carr spikes it with one second left. Here comes Sea-bass. Of course he makes it.
5:23 p.m. - Our score at halftime? Kansas City leads it 13-10.
5:25 p.m. - The Chiefs are clearly winning the run game, with 65 yards on the ground compared to Oakland's 28. However, the Raiders are outyarding K.C by air, 169 yards to 113.
5:26 p.m. - Oh, and Amari Cooper has 117 yards on just nine carries. Keep an eye on this one, fantasy footballers - the Coop may very well be on the verge of a 300-yard game.
5:37 p.m. - Touchback for the Chiefs, so they'll take over at their own 25.
5:38 p.m. - Conley gets a 13-yard pick-up.

6:27 p.m. - Coop with another 10-yard pick-up.

6:39 p.m. - The back cannot make it to the first down marker. Chiefs punt it away.

6:47 p.m. - Second and three for the Chiefs. Ware stopped behind the first down markers. And that's the two-minute warning.
