Chiefs rushing offense (F): For the second time this year, the Chiefs simply couldnt match the physical might of Oaklands front.

The Kansas City Star
Chiefs passing offense (F): Brady Quinn threw plenty of short passes that did little damage.
Chiefs rushing defense (D-): The Chiefs were frequently blown off the ball.
Chiefs passing defense (C-): The Chiefs forced one fumble but otherwise failed to pressure Carson Palmer into mistakes.
Chiefs special teams (B+): A great game by Dustin Colquitt but, of course, it didnt matter.
Chiefs coaching (D): Theres little imagination to KCs offensive plan but perhaps they dont have the players to make it work.
Key play: Justin Houston tipped a third-down pass from the Chiefs 2 that forced Oakland to kick a field goal.
Key stat: The Chiefs had a total of minus-10 yards on their three first-down plays.
Key play: Jamaal Charles had a 42-yard run wiped out because of Jon Asamoahs holding penalty.
Key stat: The Chiefs had no first downs on any of their six possessions.
Key play: Brady Quinns pass on fourth and goal went to Jamaal Charles in the field of play rather than another player in the end zone. Charles didnt score and the Chiefs came away with no points.
Key stat: The Raiders chewed up almost half of the period on an 81-yard drive to a field goal.
Key play: Quinns fourth down pass to Jon Baldwin with more than nine minutes left was incomplete, ending Kansas Citys last good scoring chance.
Key stat: The Chiefs were 0 for 3 on fourth down in the period.
Player of the game
Punter Dustin Colquitt put four of his seven punts inside the 20 and had a net average of almost 52 yards.
Reason to hope
The Chiefs held the Raiders without a touchdown.
Reason to mope
The offense appears to be getting worse.
The Chiefs finish their home schedule on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
