Raiders...23 Chiefs...8

September 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Oakland Raiders, with plenty of help from Kansas City, set aside all their backbiting and turmoil long enough to win a game.

Rookie Darren McFadden ran for 164 yards and a touchdown and Sebastian Janikowski kicked a team-record 56-yard field goal, leading the Raiders to a 23-8 victory over an inept Chiefs team that tried three quarterbacks.

Lane Kiffin, amid reports that his job is in jeopardy, won for only the fifth time in 18 games as coach of the Raiders.

The Chiefs' young defense gave up 300 yards rushing, including 90 by Michael Bush, who all by himself beat the Chiefs' 55 yards on the ground. Kansas City started 0-2 for the third time in three years under Herm Edwards and has lost 11 regular-season games in a row.

In using three quarterbacks, the Chiefs had only 65 net yards at halftime and barely managed to avoid their first home shutout since 1994.

Quoteworthy: "They came out and knocked us off the ball and ran the ball down our throat." -- Herm Edwards, Chiefs coach
