ALAMEDA — Oakland's Kevin Burnett isn't sure yet what exactly the Raiders will try to do to slow down the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs this week.

It might not matter what the plan is the way the Chiefs have played while winning their first five games.

That's why even as he buried himself in the film room trying to find an edge, Burnett realized the Raiders will likely have to go off script if they're going to give Kansas City its first loss of the season.

"Nobody's (stopped the Chiefs) so far," Burnett said Thursday. "We're going into uncharted waters. You want to go execute your game plan, but everybody's game plan works on the practice field. It's not until Sunday when you see whether it works or not."

Part of Oakland's offseason defensive makeover, Burnett is sometimes at his best when freelancing on the field.
