Raiders 31 Chiefs 10


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Michael Bush rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown and the short-handed Oakland Raiders beat playoff-bound Kansas City 31-10 Sunday to gain a unique NFL distinction.

The Raiders (8-8) finished 6-0 in the AFC West, the first team since the 1970 merger to go unbeaten in the division and not make the playoffs. The Chiefs (10-6) were 2-4 in the division, but will host a playoff game next weekend as AFC West champions.

Two of Oakland's best players, running back Darren McFadden and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour, were inactive because of injuries. But the Raiders dominated in just about every way while handing the Chiefs their first home loss.

Interesting, considering the Chiefs are the home team. That means the Chiefs are 1 point underdogs on a neutral field. Probably questions about the Chiefs motivation.
No one is talking about where or not the Chiefs will rest players, probably cause it has no effect on the other teams (unlike the Bears-Packers game). The Chiefs will be the #3 seed unless they lose and the Colts win. The only possible way this could hurt them is if they meet the Colts in the AFC Championship game. They don't appear to have any major injuries that require and/or would be helped by an extra week of rest. Todd Haley has said that the Chiefs won't rest players and will try to win the game.

I don't think this could have worked out worse for Todd Haley and co. Cassel looked bad, got beat around, and they are getting thumped by a division rival that isn't going to the playoffs.

I just read on ESPN.com that "sources" are saying Tom Cable won't be back in Oakland. Why the heck is Cable out? He got this Raider team playing real physical, and more importantly, did it while playing like a team. I think he has (had) this franchise in the right direction. Leave it to Al Davis.
