Grades for the Raiders' 15-0 win against Kansas City:
Quarterbacks: B Carson Palmer was unspectacular, especially in the red zone, but he avoided the critical mistake.
Running Backs: A Darren McFadden had tough fourth-quarter yardage, and Mike Goodson popped a 43-yard run.
Receivers: D Highly forgettable day for the pass catchers.
Offensive Line: A Some of the holes for McFadden were extra wide, and Palmer wasn’t sacked — or hardly touched.
Defensive Line: A Three of Oakland’s four sacks came from defensive linemen. Andre Carter hit Quinn two other times.
Linebackers: B Philip Wheeler had a team-high 7 tackles and a sack.
Defensive Backs: A Gritty game for this battered group, led by S Matt Giordano and CB Joselio Hanson.
Special Teams: B Seabass bailed out Raiders with 5 FGs. But what the heck was Denarius Moore doing on those punt returns?
Coaching/Overall: B The Raiders handled their business against an atrocious team, but need to find a way to score touchdowns.
