Chiefs vs. Raiders 2012: KC closes in on No. 1 pick

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City has at least a top two pick in the NFL Draft.

Sunday was the first time that the Kansas City Chiefs have been shut out in over two years. Their last shutout loss came in December 2010 against San Diego, but Sunday's loss at Oakland clinched a last place finish for the Chiefs. As SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride stated, it was a new low for a season already full of low points:

There was nothing pretty about Sunday's game in Oakland. The Raiders and Chiefs are both bad. The Raiders were just less bad on this day. If you didn't watch the game, I'd recommend not going back and watching it. Could be hazardous to your health.

The Kansas City defense did not give up a touchdown, but Sebastian Janikowski connected on five field goals and the Raiders defense kept Kansas City off the board. The Chiefs earned just seven first downs and had 119 yards of total offense on the day.

The rushing game was even worse for Kansas City. The Chiefs earned only 10 total yards on the ground with Jamaal Charles getting 10 yards on nine carries a week after rushing for 165 yards against Cleveland. There was only one turnover, however, on a Brady Quinn interception.
