NFL changes one of Hali’s sacks vs. Raiders to a tackle

Scratch one of the Chiefs’ 10 sacks from last Sunday’s victory over the Oakland Raiders.

The league determined that Raiders quarterback Terrell Pryor was running the ball on an option and not looking for a receiver on a fourth-quarter play in which Tamba Hali was credited with a sack for tackling Pryor for a four-yard loss.

So Hali’s total for the game dropped to 2 1/2 sacks.

The Chiefs, with 30 sacks for the season, are still on pace for 80, which would shatter the NFL record of 72 set by the 1984 Chicago Bears.
