10. Chiefs 28, Raiders 0: Oct. 23, 2011

After an 0-3 start to the 2011 season, the Kansas City Chiefs were coming off two straight wins. Coming off a bye, the Chiefs had to go on the road and win to have a .500 season. Kansas City did that, but in one of the best defensive performances the team has ever had.

Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis scored the game’s first touchdown on a pick-six on a 59-yard return. The Chiefs got offensive touchdowns from fullback Le’Ron McClain and cornerback Javier Arenas.

But it was the defense that allowed the Chiefs to stay ahead the entire game. In the game’s only touchdown in the fourth quarter, Brandon Flowers got an interception and ran 58 yards to the end zone, flexing his muscles in front of a hostile and frustrated Raiders crowd.

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel threw two interceptions in this game. However, there were two more quarterbacks who did worse.

Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller threw three interceptions in the first half against the Chiefs. Raiders head coach Hue Jackson made a change at halftime, putting Carson Palmer under center for the Raiders. But the result was the same. Palmer threw three interceptions against the Chiefs. Both Boller and Palmer were responsible for three interceptions a half as each also threw a pick-six.

The six interceptions from the Chiefs defense not only helped the team win, but also shutout the Raiders in front of their home crowd. It was the first six-interception game for the Chiefs since 1984 against the Seattle Seahawks.
