Chiefs Improve to 6-0 After Defeating the Raiders, 24-7

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs remarkable turnaround in 2013 continued on Sunday as they defeated the Oakland Raiders 24-7 to improve their record to 6-0.

For the first time since 2003, the Chiefs are undefeated after six games. What makes it even more impressive is that the team won two games all of last year.

Running back Jamaal Charles led the way for the Chiefs on offense. He carried the ball 22 times for 78 yards with two touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 50 yards.

Quarterback Alex Smith was steady as he completed 14 of 31 passes for 128 yards with no touchdowns, but also no interceptions.

Meanwhile, the loss dropped the Raiders to 2-4 on the season.

Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor completed 18 of 34 passes with 216 yards with a touchdown, but he also tossed three interceptions.

Even though the Chiefs could only generate 216 yards on offense, their defense held the Raiders to 274 total yards of offense.
