This was another must win game for the Raiders, playing at rival Kansas City against an awful Chiefs team. Coming into this game, the Chiefs had not held a lead in regulation all season long and had been plagued by poor play from quarterback Matt Cassel and replacement Brady Quinn. A lot was at stake for Oakland, including the team’s first road win of the season and first two-game winning streak of the season.
The question was how the Raiders would respond given that they had listed 20 players on the weekly injury report. The running game has been severely lacking and the team defense has been less than desirable. Quarterback Carson Palmer is on pace to pass for 4600 yards, but he is ultimately judged by wins and losses. Against the Chiefs, his personal stats were modest, but the Raiders came away with the victory.
