Raiders keep safe QB, hex over Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Carson Palmer walked off the field at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Raiders had won for the sixth straight time, and looked just like he did at the start.
Not a grass stain on him. No laundry detergent needed.
Palmer passed for 209 yards and two touchdowns while having all the time he needed in the pocket to beat the Chiefs again. "Phenomenal," Palmer said. "I don't think my jersey needs to be washed."
Oakland nearly became the third straight team to keep the Kansas City offense out of the end zone.
The Chiefs haven't led in a game this season, the first time since at least 1940 that a team has gone this long without a lead, according to STATS LLC.
Matt Cassel returned to replace quarterback Brady Quinn, who left in the first half with what the Chiefs called a head injury.
