Raiders vs. Chiefs 2012: Blog reacts to another tough Oakland win

Peter Aiken

The Raiders are still in the thick of the AFC West and are slowly developing an identity as a team.

The Raiders love playing in Arrowhead Stadium and they once again went into the Kansas City Chiefs' home and came out with a win, 26-16, on Sunday.

Silver and Black Pride noted that this win was similar to last week's win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It wasn't pretty. It won't get any style points. But it still goes in the win column like any other victory and the Raiders will take whatever they can get.

The defense locked up Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and took advantage of four turnovers by the Chiefs, who came into the game leading the NFL in turnovers. They knocked starting quarterback Brady Quinn out of the game and did a good job on his backup, Matt Cassel.

The Raiders got 114 rushing yards from Darren McFadden for only his second 100-plus rushing game of the season.

It was the Raiders' sixth straight win at Arrowhead and they are now 3-4 on the season, which ties them with the San Diego Chargers for second in the AFC West behind the division-leading Denver Broncos, who are 4-3.
