The Raiders defeated the Kansas City Chiefs at O.co Coliseum Sunday, 15-0.
The victory marked the first shutout by the Silver and Black since a 24-0 win over the Chiefs on Dec. 28, 2002, in Oakland.
Against the league's No. 5 rushing offense, Oakland limited the Chiefs to just 10 yards on the ground, tying a franchise record for fewest yards rushing by an opponent. The mark was set on Dec. 10, 2000, vs. the New York Jets.
In two games this year, the Raiders limited Jamaal Charles – the league's No. 5 rusher entering the week, coming off three straight 100-yard games, to 14 yards on 14 carries. He had nine carries for 9 yards today. Charles (748 carries, 4,257 yards, 5.7 avg.) needs two more carries to officially qualify and rank as the No. 1 rusher of all-time in terms of average per carry.
Oakland's 40:06 time of possession was its fourth-highest total of all-time, and most since a 40:15 mark, Dec. 28, 2002, vs. KC.
The Raiders allowed just 119 total yards, the lowest amount surrendered by the Silver and Black since a 6-0 victory on Oct. 6, 1975, at San Diego.
Oakland set a season high with 203 net rushing yards, marking the most since rushing for 234 yards on Sept. 25, 2011, vs. the New York Jets.
Oakland finished 3-5 at home this season. They also finished 3-5 at home last year.
The Raiders are 4-0 this season when scoring in each quarter.
On Nov. 18, for this first time this season, the Raiders played a full game with the five offensive linemen they'd projected to start at the end of training camp. In five games since, the raiders have averaged 4.5 yards per carry (568 yards on 127 carries), 13th in the NFL during that span.
The Raider defense recorded a season-high four sacks, with DT Desmond Bryant, DE Andre Carter, DT Tommy Kelly and LB Philip Wheeler each getting to QB Brady Quinn.
Oakland's offensive line did not allow a sack, marking the third time this season that the line has not allowed a sack. The Raiders are 2-1 in contests in which they do not allow a sack this season.
The Raiders held a 9-0 lead at halftime, marking the first time that Oakland has shut out an opponent in the first half since Oct. 31, 2010, vs. Seattle.
The Raiders held the Chiefs without a first down in the first half, the first time an NFL team has done so since Jacksonville held Baltimore without a first-half first down on Oct. 24, 2011.
Oakland's defense limited the Chiefs to minus-2 yards rushing in the first half, the fewest by an NFL team since St. Louis held Carolina to minus-5 yards on the ground on Oct. 31, 2010.
The minus-2 yards rushing in the first half were the least by a Raider opponent since the Silver and Black held New Orleans to minus-5 yards on the ground on Nov. 20, 1995.
The Raiders turned a second-quarter interception by CB Joselio Hanson into a field goal, marking the 12th time this season that the Silver and Black has scored points following a takeaway.
The Raiders' field goal as time expired in the first half marked the 11th time this season that Oakland has scored within the final two minutes of the first half. The Raiders scored within the final two minutes of the first half in nine straight games before having the streak snapped on Nov. 18, vs. New Orleans.
The Raiders have scored an NFL-leading 82 points at the end of the half this season.
Four players – Matt Giordano, Joselio Hanson, Michael Huff and Phillip Adams (each with two – now have multiple interceptions, most by a Raiders team since 2008, when DeAngelo Hall (3), Chris Johnson (3), Rashad Baker (3) and Gibril Wilson (2) did it in 2008.
FB/RB Jamize Olawale made his NFL debut, becoming the 12th Raider to make his first NFL appearance this season. Olawale joined OL Tony Bergstrom, DT Christo Bilukidi, LB Kaelin Burnett, LB Miles Burris, DE Jack Crawford, WR Juron Criner, LB Carl Ihenacho, C/G Alex Parsons, RB Jeremy Stewart, WR Rod Streater and CB Brandian Ross as Raiders that have seen action in their first NFL game this season.

The game marked McFadden's 12th-career 100-yard rushing contest. The Raiders are 10-2 in games in which McFadden tops the 100-yard mark.
With 30 rushing attempts, McFadden tied a career high, set on Sept. 19, 2010, vs. St. Louis.

Janikowski's 57-yard field goal at the end of the first half marked a season long and his longest since booting a 59-yarder on Dec. 26, 2010, vs. Indianapolis.
It marked the first time that Janikowski has kicked multiple field goals of 50-or-more yards since he kicked three on Oct. 9, 2011, at Houston.
