KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Carson Palmer threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and the Oakland Raiders stuffed the struggling Kansas City Chiefs 26-16 on Sunday for their sixth consecutive win at Arrowhead Stadium.

Sebastian Janikowski was perfect on four field-goal attempts, and the Raiders (3-4) nearly became the third consecutive team to keep the Kansas City offense out of the end zone.

The Chiefs (1-6) scored their only touchdown with 2:27 left in the game.

Darren McFadden ran for 114 yards, and Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey had touchdown catches for Oakland, which has won two in a row after losing four of its first five.

Matt Cassel threw for 218 yards in place of Brady Quinn, who left in the first half with what the team called a "head injury." Quinn had started his second consecutive game.

The Chiefs have lost four in a row and still have not led in regulation this season.
