Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes at Arrowhead Stadium as the Raiders secured a second straight win with a 26-16 success against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field-goals from four attempts for Oakland (3-4) who won for the first time on the road since beating the same opposition in December last year.
The Chiefs (1-6), who have now lost four in a row, registered their lone touchdown with just 2:27 left courtesy of a Dexter McCluster catch, but remarkably have still not led a game in regulation this season.
Janikowski and Ryan Succop traded two field goals each as the game was tied at 6-6 in the second quarter, but the Raiders took the lead into half-time as Palmer hit Denarius Moore in the end zone after the Chiefs' Javier Arenas fumbled a punt.
Again the teams traded field goals, but the Raiders put the game to bed as they went 80 yards in just six plays for another score in the third.
Palmer connected with a 36-yard touchdown pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey as Oakland opened a decisive 23-9 lead.
Janikowski would add another field goal at the second time of asking after his initial missed attempt was called back for a foul on the play, while McCluster's late score was merely a consolation for the Chiefs.
