The Raiders defeated the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium for the sixth-straight season, registering a 26-16 victory.
The win marked the Raiders’ first road triumph of the season, and first since defeating the Chiefs, 16-13, in overtime on Dec. 24, 2011.
The Raiders scored a touchdown near the end of the first half, marking the seventh time this season that the Silver and Black have scored in the last two minutes of a half. The Raiders have scored three touchdowns and recorded four field goals in the last two minutes of a half through seven games this season.
The Silver and Black committed just two penalties for 20 yards in the win.
The Raiders out-rushed the Chiefs, 135-102, led by RB Darren McFadden’s 114 yards. After rushing for just 16 yards in the first half, Oakland’s ground game totaled 119 yards in the second half.
The win marked the first for the Raiders against an AFC West opponent this season.
RB Darren McFadden totaled a season-high 114 rushing yards on 29 carries, marking his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season.
McFadden eclipsed the 3,000-yard mark for his career, finishing the game with 3,065 career rushing yards. He is the 12th player in franchise history to rush for more than 3,000 yards.
McFadden’s 29 rushing attempts marked a season high and the second most of his career, following a 30-attempt performance on Sept. 19, 2010, against the St. Louis Rams.
McFadden recorded a 28-yard run in the fourth quarter, marking his second longest run of the season. He also broke off a 19-yard run on a third-quarter drive. His longest rush of the season came on a 64-yard touchdown scamper against the Pittsburgh Steelers at O.co Coliseum on Sept. 23.
Moore finished the game with five catches for 96 yards and one touchdown, just short of his third 100-yard receiving game of the season.
On Moore’s second catch of the game, he eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for his career. His average of 18.1 yards per reception through his first 56 career catches ranks fifth among active players.
Janikowski has now kicked 43 consecutive field goals from less than 40 yards, having last missed such an attempt on Sept. 23, 2010, at Arizona.
McClain was credited with his first career forced fumble on the sack.
McClain’s sack set up a second-and-17 play that resulted in an interception for the Raiders.
The pick marked the first interception of the season for Giordano, who led the Raiders with five picks and ranked fifth in the NFL with 130 interception return yards last season.
Wheeler was credited with tackles on three straight plays in the third quarter, forcing a Kansas City punt. He accumulated a game-high 11 solo tackles.
QB Carson Palmer connected with WR Denarius Moore for a 9-yard touchdown pass, marking Moore’s fourth touchdown catch of the year.
Moore recorded a touchdown for the third straight game, marking his longest career streak. It is the first time a Raider has recorded touchdown receptions in three straight games since TE Zach Miller posted touchdown catches in three consecutive games from Sept. 26-Oct. 10, 2010.
The fumble recovery was the third of Kelly’s career and his first since Oct. 16, 2011, against Cleveland.
QB Carson Palmer tossed a touchdown pass for the sixth time in seven games this season, connecting with WRs Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey for scoring strikes.
Palmer extended his active streak of 200-yard passing games to 13 straight games, a franchise record.
LB Vic So’oto recorded a special teams tackle on a fourth-quarter punt, marking his first tackle as a Raider.
