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.
WR Denarius Moore produced a 58-yard catch-and-run that marked a season long for the second-year player and the third-longest catch of his career. The play was the fourth play of 58 or more yards for the Raiders this season and helped set up a 36-yard field goal.
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.
QB Carson Palmer connected with Moore for a 9-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, giving the veteran signal-caller his 175th career passing touchdown.
K Sebastian Janikowski kicked field goals of 36, 35, 29 and 32 yards, improving to 32-for-36 all-time at Arrowhead Stadium.
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.
LB Rolando McClain recorded his first sack of the season, getting to QB Brady Quinn for a 7-yard loss in the first quarter. It was McClain's first sack since an 8-yard sack on Dec. 18, 2011, against Detroit. McClain increased his career sack total to seven.
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.
S Matt Giordano picked off a Brady Quinn pass in the first quarter and returned it 21 yards to set up a field-goal drive for the Raiders. Giordano's last interception also came at Kansas City, during a 16-13 overtime win for the Raiders on Dec. 24, 2011.
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.
DE Matt Shaughnessy provided a quarterback pressure, helping force Brady Quinn to throw the first-quarter interception by Giordano.
S Tyvon Branch knocked away a pass in the end zone intended for Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki on a third-and-nine play in the second quarter, forcing Kansas City to settle for a 30-yard field goal.
DT Richard Seymour notched his team-leading third sack of the season, dropping QB Matt Cassel for a 3-yard loss in the second quarter. After recording a sack last week against Jacksonville, Seymour has recorded sacks in consecutive games for the first time since the 2010 season.
LB Philip Wheeler posted a 12-yard sack on a third-and-three play from the Oakland 12-yard line to force a Chiefs field goal. It marks Wheeler's first sack as a Raider and just the third of his career. Wheeler last posted a sack as a member of the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 6, 2011, against the Atlanta Falcons.
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.
TE Brandon Myers had a career-long 29-yard reception on a pass from QB Carson Palmer in the second quarter. Myers' catch eclipsed his previous career long of 26 yards set during the season opener against San Diego.
LS Jon Condo recovered a muffed punt by Chiefs PR Javier Arenas on the 11-yard line with 1:39 left in the first half, setting up an Oakland touchdown drive. It marked Condo's second career fumble recovery, following a recovery on a muffed punt on Sept. 26, 2010, at Arizona.
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.
DT Tommy Kelly recorded a fumble recovery on the first play from scrimmage in the second half setting up a field-goal drive.
The fumble recovery was the third of Kelly's career and his first since Oct. 16, 2011, against Cleveland.
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey posted a 32-yard touchdown catch-and-run in the third quarter, scoring on his only reception of the game. It was Heyward-Bey's second touchdown catch of the season, following a score against the Steelers on Sept. 23.
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.
CB Pat Lee picked off a fourth-quarter pass from Chiefs QB Matt Cassel, marking the first-career interception for the fifth-year player. He was also credited with a career-high two passes defensed in the win.
