KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Trent Green looked and felt just like new. He was at his best when Kansas City needed him most.After passing for barely 50 yards in his return from a 10-week layoff, the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback coolly threw for 50 yards in one game-winning fourth-quarter drive. Hitting three of five in the final minutes, Green set up Larry Johnson's 1-yard go-ahead touchdown run and rallied the sluggish Chiefs past injury-riddled Oakland 17-13.
Trent Green has led the Chiefs to seven straight wins against the Raiders, but the victory margin was seven points or less in all seven. That equals the second-longest such streak in NFL history (that is, consecutive wins by seven points or less vs. one team). The Eagles had an eight-game streak vs. the Redskins (1992-1996).

|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
Trent Green returned to the starting lineup for the Chiefs but it was Larry Johnson (right) who stole the show with 154 yards rushing and two touchdowns. It was apparent from the outset that they were just trying to get Green's feet wet. He attempted only 16 passes for the day.
It was a struggle for much of the day for Green, too, but he showed great leadership and poise on K.C.'s late fourth-quarter TD drive, hitting a few key throws. For the Raiders it was another disappointing loss. Veteran QB Aaron Brooks, who returned to the starting lineup, led them inside the 10 on a potential game-winning drive, but in true Brooks-like fashion, he threw an interception to seal the deal for the Chiefs.
Gonzalez missed his first game since 1999 with a shoulder injury. The Raiders have lost 11 straight to AFC West opponents since a 25-24 victory at Denver on Nov. 28, 2004. It was the seventh straight victory for Kansas City over Oakland, all by seven points or fewer.
