OAKLAND -- After a week of speculation, Kyle Boller started at quarterback for the Raiders against Kansas City on Sundayas expected.

Several national media outlets, and some local, had newly-acquired Carson Palmer getting the start, even though he had not taken a meaningful snap since January.

But on the the Raiders' third play, a 3rd-and-6 from the Kansas City 48-yard line, Boller threw into double coverage along the left sideline and safety Kendrick Lewis jumped the play and returned the interception 59 yards for a touchdown.

Interesting to note, though, that Terrelle Pryor was in one play earlier, lining up as a receiver and going into motion before setting under center and taking the snap on 3rd-and-1. But he was called for a false start.

Fans began chanting for Palmer after the Boller pick-six.
