Raiders vs. Chiefs: Oakland keeping win in perspective

Peter Aiken

The Oakland Raiders have won two games in a row for the first time this season.

The Oakland Raiders have won two games in a row for the first time this season, after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs, 26-16, on Sunday.

The win was Oakland's first on the road this season and improved them to 3-4 on the year, one game behind the Denver Broncos for first place in the AFC West division.

Oakland defensive tackle Tommy Kelly told Paul Gutierrez of CSNSportsBayArea.com that the team is keeping the win over Kansas City in perspective, as it's not going to mean anything if the team loses this Sunday at home to Tampa Bay.

Head coach Dennis Allen added: "this one's only important if we're able to go out and win the next one."

The Raiders have beaten the Jaguars and Chiefs in consecutive weeks, two teams that are a combined 2-12 on the season.

The Buccaneers are 3-4 and coming off a 36-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings last Thursday.
