Chiefs 23, Raiders 17

Chiefs' streak hits team-record 10

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Smith looked down at his phone in the Chiefs' locker room, moments after leading his team to its franchise-record 10th straight victory.

"Just checking messages," he said, grinning.

Not checking scores. Turns out, Smith already knew Denver had knocked off San Diego to deny Kansas City the AFC West title.

But by beating the Raiders, the Chiefs kept their roll going into their playoff opener next weekend in Houston.

The Raiders mustered only a field goal on offense until a touchdown in the final minutes in the final game for 18-year veteran and All-Pro safety Charles Woodson.

"I would have liked to walk off the field with a win," said Woodson, who began his career with Oakland in the same stadium on Sept. 6, 1998. "There's nothing like going out there between the lines every Sunday afternoon or whatever day you play. I had such a great time doing it."
