(Kansas City, Missouri-AP) -- Oakland knocked Kansas City out of the playoff picture by beating the Chiefs in overtime, 41-to-38. The Chiefs had a 14-to-0 lead in the first three minutes without putting their offense on the field. They were up 17-to-0 before the Raiders ripped off the next 21 points to start a battle that went back and forth the rest of the day. The lead changed hands six times. Former Chiefs quarterback Rich Gannon was 35-of-47 for 324 yards and three touchdowns for the Raiders. Joe Nedney hit a game-tying field goal from 38 yards out with 45 seconds left to tie the score, then nailed a 33-yarder to win the game in overtime. The Chiefs end the season with a 9-and-7 record. The Raiders put an 8-and-8 mark in their record book.
