KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -
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 straight win at Arrowhead Stadium.
Sebastian Janikowski was perfect on four field-goal attempts, and the Raiders (3-4) nearly became the third straight 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 straight 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 straight game.
The Chiefs have lost four straight and still have not led in regulation this season.
Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn is being evaluated for what the team called a "head injury" after leaving in the first half of their game against Oakland on Sunday.
Quinn was starting in place of Matt Cassel, who was benched after a weak start to the year but entered the game when Quinn got hurt.
Quinn was hit hard on a sack by Rolando McClain on the Chiefs' third possession, and then took another shot when he threw an interception off his back foot.
Cassel came into the game for the Chiefs' next series.
Cassel sustained a concussion three weeks ago against Baltimore and missed a game at Tampa Bay before getting benched. He was cleared to practice during the Chiefs' bye last week.
Defensive end Glenn Dorsey will miss his fourth straight game with a left calf injury when the Chiefs play the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Dorsey sustained the injury in practice before the Chiefs' game against San Diego. He was listed as questionable on this week's injury report.
Ropati Pitoitua was slated to start in his place.
Also inactive for the Chiefs are backup tight end Steve Maneri, center Bryan Mattison, wide receiver Devon Wylie, safety Tysyn Hartman, linebacker Bryan Kehl and quarterback Ricky Stanzi.
Linebacker Travis Goethel is inactive for Oakland along with defensive end Jack Crawford, cornerback Shawntae Spencer, offensive linemen Lucas Nix and Khalif Barnes, running back Taiwan Jones and quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
