Kansas City quarterback Steve Fuller said he felt no pressure when he came off the bench in the third quarter of today's game against the Oakland Raiders.
"It was a good situation in that there was really no pressure at all on me. We're down, 17-0, and I can get in there and more or less try to make things happen," Fuller said after rallying the Chiefs to a 28-17 victory that gave them sole possession of first place in the AFC West.
Fuller, sidelined until today by knee problems, directed three drives that ended with touchdown runs by rookie Billy Jackson.
Jackson, playing for the injured Joe Delaney, who was knocked out of action early in the second half, scored on one 23-yard run and a pair of three-yard plunges.
The Chiefs had rushed for only 14 yards in the first half.
Linebacker Gary Spani stopped an Oakland threat in the last minute by running 91 yards for a touchdown after recovering a fumble. Linebacker Charles Jackson forced the fumble, blindsiding Oakland quarterback Marc Wilson at the Kansas City 10.
Kansas City improved to 6-2; the Raiders fell to 3-5.
The Raiders took a 17-0 halftime lead. They were aided by the punting of Ray Guy -- who continuously pinned the Chiefs within their own 20.
