Raiders vs. Chiefs: Oakland RB Darren McFadden says it was a great game

Darren McFadden got a little carried away with his adjectives following the Raiders 15-0 victory against the Chiefs Sunday.

Although those who were forced to watch might not agree, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden called Sunday's 15-0 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs "an overall great game for us," according to CSN Bay Area.

That's a bit of a hyperbole for a contest that featured two teams who failed to put a single touchdown on the board. Then again, when you win for the first time in seven games, you'd probably be willing to call a 2-0 final score a "great game."

The Chiefs and Raiders combined to go 0-for-4 in the red zone Sunday in what was only the second shutout by Oakland in the history of this rivalry. Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski provided the only offense on the day as he connected on field goals from 20, 50, 57, 30 and 41 yards away.

From a glass half full analysis, this was McFadden's best game of the season in terms of total yardage (149), but it also was the eighth time in 10 games this season that he's been held under four yards per carry (3.7 on Sunday).
