The Raiders tied a franchise record by allowing the Chiefs just 10 rushing yards. In two games this season, Oakland limited Jamaal Charles, who entered Sunday's contest as the NFL's No. 5 rusher, to 14 yards on 14 carries.

The Raiders' 40:06 time of possession was their fourth-highest of all time, and most in a decade.

LB Rolando McClain, recently suspended — and then reinstated — by the team, and DT Richard Seymour both were inactive for Sunday's game. Seymour has missed six straight games with knee and hamstring injuries.

Carson Palmer moved into second place on the Raiders' single-season list for both pass attempts (562) and yardage (3,987).

Sebastian Janikowski moved into a tie for second place (with John Kasay) on the NFL's all-time list with 42 field goals of 50 or more yards.

Lechler's first punt of the game was the 1,000th of his NFL career.
