Sunday, they were already losing the perception battle before they even took the field.That’s because the New York Jets - who dominated the Raiders 34-3 a week before - were humiliated by the previously winless Bengals in an early game.

Phillip Lindsay was bottled up on the ground, and former Missouri standout Drew Lock — who grew up in the Kansas City suburb of Lee's Summit — struggled not only with the conditions but a suddenly stout Chiefs defense.

That included Kansas City running back LeSean McCoy and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, both of whom were delayed by the crawling traffic in getting to pregame warmups.
An hour before kickoff, dozens of workers were clearing off the yard lines, end zones and sidelines as the snow swirled inside the stadium.
