Chiefs now at 6-0 to start the campaign.
The Kansas City Chiefs maintained their perfect start to the NFL season with a 24-7 win over the Oakland Raiders at the Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
After winning just two games all season last year, the Chiefs extended their second-best start to a season in franchise history, with their better effort coming back in 2003 where they won their first nine games.
Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns, while the Kansas City defence pressured Terrelle Pryor into throwing three second-half interceptions.
While Pryor threw for 216 yards and a touchdown, his interceptions were costly as they led to big scores for the Chiefs as they took control of the clash.
In addition, the Chiefs tied the second-most sacks in a game since they became an official statistic back in 1982, registering 10 sacks on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Alex Smith will have also been disappointed with his performance after he ended the game 14 of 31 for 128 yards with no touchdown passes but perhaps importantly with no interceptions either.
There was also newsworthy events happening off the field, as the Kansas City fans were hoping to break the record for the loudest outdoor sports stadium, which had previously been set by the Seattle Seahawks earlier this year.
It is unclear at this stage as to whether or not they succeeded, but they undoubtedly made their presence known during the game as the optimism continues to grow around the Chiefs.
However, it was disappointment for Oakland as the Raiders slipped to 2-4 with this latest loss, while the Chiefs will be hoping to extend their winning streak to seven games when they host the Houston Texans next Sunday.
Meanwhile, Oakland will have the chance to bounce back in a fortnight’s time as they have a bye week ahead, with their next game coming at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 27.
