Raiders tie franchise record for losses

The Oakland Raiders season of futility continued on Saturday night with a 20-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. It was their eighth straight loss and tied a franchise record for losses in a season, matching the 13 losses they accumulated in 1962.

Ironically, the 1-13 mark they amassed in 1962 came the year before Al Davis took over as coach of the team before eventually owning the club.

Much like previous weeks, turnovers led to opposition points. Two first half fumbles from quarterback Andrew Walter, both of which were recovered by Jared Allen, led to ten Kansas City points. Both came inside Oakland territory.

Walter (27-for-37 for 226 yards) turned the ball over four times, tossing two interceptions inside Kansas City territory.

Sebastian Janikowsi opened up the scoring with a 25-yard field goal and added two more boots, from 37 and 53, to account for the Raiders points.

Eddie Kennison's only catch of the day put Kansas City ahead for good in the first quarter. Larry Johnson would add a touchdown run off a turnover in the second quarter and Lawrence Tynes hit two field goals to provide the final margin. Johnson rushed 31 times for 135 yards.

Ronald Curry caught 11 passes for 106 yards and has snared 28 passes over the last three weeks after catching 29 passes over the first 12 games.

Nnamdi Asomugha added his eighth interception of the year.
