OAKLAND, Calif. -- When the Kansas City Chiefs are at their best on offense, it all starts with the running game.So after passing the ball 50 times in a blowout loss to Pittsburgh two weeks ago, the Chiefs ran over the Oakland Raiders in a 26-10 victory on Sunday.Spencer Ware ran for a career-high 131 yards and a touchdown , Jamaal Charles got his first TD back from knee surgery and the Chiefs gained 183 yards on the ground overall in a thorough victory over what had been the surging Raiders.It really felt like we did get one-dimensional and then we got back to us, which is balanced and mixed, quarterback Alex Smith said.Were throwing a lot of different looks at you -- run and pass. Spreading the field, I thought we did a great job taking our shots today, and when we did, hitting them.After being stopped on the opening drive, the Chiefs (3-2) moved the ball with ease against the Raiders (4-2), who once again struggled on defense, but didnt get the offensive performance to overcome that this week.Ware gained 163 yards of offense and scored Kansas Citys first TD on a 2-yard run. Charles made the most of his most extensive playing time since his season-ending knee injury last year.After having just two carries against Pittsburgh two weeks ago before the bye, he had nine runs for 33 yards and a TD against the Raiders.The line did a great job helping us move the ball up the field, Charles said. The quarterback and wide receivers did a great job looking the balls in. And it was all the way around on the offense.STALLED OFFENSE: The Raiders scored a touchdown on the opening drive and then were limited to three points the rest of the way as Derek Carr committed two turnovers and the running game never got going. Amari Cooper had nine catches for 117 yards in the first half, but just one for 12 yards after that as the Raiders were thoroughly beaten.Its never what theyre doing, its what we do, Cooper said. We just need to execute better. Play how we practice. Do the things we practice in practice.BIG-MAN TD: Dontari Poe makes the most of his offensive chances. Kansas Citys 346-pound defensive lineman has two career TDs on two rushes. His first came late last season against San Diego.He added another on Sunday. With the Chiefs facing third-and-goal from the 1 in the third quarter, Poe came in as an eligible receiver. He initially lined up in the backfield before shifting out wide right. He then took a lateral from Smith and bulled with way into the end zone for the TD .They both were pretty good, Poe said. Theyre both worth six. I love them all.SPREADING IT AROUND: Smith was extremely efficient all game. He completed 15 straight passes at one point and had just three incompletions in 22 passes. He didnt target a single receiver more than four times and completed at least two passes to seven different players.CALLING THE SIGNALS: After a Week 2 loss at home to Atlanta, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he took over play-calling duties late from defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. Del Rio hinted he might take a bigger role in calling the defense in the future, but said he didnt do it against the Chiefs.Kenny has the headset, Del Rio said.WHATS NEXT: The Raiders prepare for a two-game trip to Florida. They face Jacksonville next Sunday and will stay in Florida the following week to practice before taking on Tampa Bay on Oct. 30. Kansas City returns home to take on New Orleans.---Online:AP NFL website: and Damion Ratley Hoodie . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The odds stacked against his underdog side, Croatian captain Zeljko Krajan was brimming with confidence Sunday morning before the reverse singles matches in the Davis Cup quarterfinal tie against United States.Marin Cilic and Borna Coric backed up their captains belief in a stirring rally, winning matches to give Croatia a 3-2 comeback victory at the Tualatin Hills hard courts.Today, I knew they were going to bring the quality, Krajan said.Cilic got in started, beating John Isner 7-6 (11-9), 6-3, 6-4. Coric then topped Jack Sock 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.The U.S. lost for the fourth time in 161 tries when leading 2-0 lead in a Davis Cup tie.After the United States swept the singles matches Friday, Cilic and Ivan Dodig kept Croatia alive Saturday with a four-set victory over twins Bob and Mike Bryan in doubles.Its really unbelievable, Krajan said. I would say shocked from this win. Looking back on Friday and being 2-love down and then playing against the Bryans yesterday, it didnt look very positive for us.Croatia will host France -- a 3-1 winner at the Czech Republic -- in the World Group semifinals Sept. 16-18. Croatia reached the semifinals for the first time since 2009. It won its only Davis Cup title in 2005.In the other semifinal, defending champion Britain will host Argentina.Cilic set the tone for the comeback against Isner, a decision that was closer than the score indicated. Cilic won a marathon tiebreaker in the opening set, then broke Isners serve once in the next two sets to pull out the win.The opening set was riveting. Isner was hot, allowing Cilic to win only one point during his first 25 serves. But the American was unable to break Cilic, forcing a tiebreaker. Cilic won a couple points off Isners serve late in the tiebreaker to pull out an 11-9 win, setting off a torrent of emotion along the Croatia sideline.That was definitely a tough task, but I stayed in there mentally, Cilic said. I was very, very focused.Isner was clearly disappointed he didnt get the jump on Cilic.The fiirst set was critical.dddddddddddd Felt like I definitely was the better player in the first set. Didnt get paid off, but thats on me. He came up with the goods when he needed it. That gave him a lot of confidence, I think, Isner said.U.S. captain Jim Courier disagreed that momentum swayed in Croatias favor after Cilic pulled out the first set.Thats not the way we look at it. First sets can be critical ... these matches are won on small margins. There are a couple points that go our way, and were sitting here with a smile on our face instead of a little disappointment, Courier said.Unlike Fridays first singles match, when Cilic lost after leading Sock by two sets, the worlds No. 12-ranked player finished off Isner by breaking him in the ninth game to pull out a 6-4 win.Cilic is 6-0 against Isner.The 19-year-old Coric is becoming a reliable closer for Croatia. It was the second time this year Coric won a fifth and deciding match to win a Davis Cup tie.I have to be honest. I like that kind of situation, Coric said. I like it more than playing on Court 27 somewhere, somewhere far away from the crowd. I just like the big stage more, when its more important.After splitting the first two sets against Sock, Coric won the final two sets by breaking the Americans serves four times. Corics performance was decidedly stronger than his three-set loss to Isner on Friday.I was much more relaxed, Coric said. I was hitting the ball, going for the points. I just wasnt waiting for him to miss, because I knew I cannot play like that because hes going to kill me with the forehand.Sock, who beat Cilic in a five-setter Friday, was upbeat despite dropping the finale.Obviously, I had chances and opportunities that I didnt convert. Thats tennis. Some days its firing and some days theyre missing a little bit. He played a great match, Sock said.Croatia is 4-0 in Davis Cup ties against the United States.
