KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns, the Kansas City defense harassed Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor into throwing three second-half interceptions and the Chiefs remained unbeaten with a 24-7 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.
After winning just twice last season, Kansas City continued the second-best start in franchise history. The Chiefs won their first nine games during the 2003 season.
The Chiefs piled up 10 sacks while ending a three-game skid to the Raiders, and a six-game losing streak against them at Arrowhead Stadium.
Pryor threw for 216 yards and a touchdown, but his interceptions proved costly.
The first led to Charles’ go-ahead touchdown run, the second led to Ryan Succop’s fourth-quarter field goal, and Husain Abdullah returned the last one for a touchdown to seal the win.
After Abdullah’s clinching TD, Arrowhead Stadium once again became the loudest stadium in the NFL.
An official from Guinness World Records told The Associated Press confirmed that Chiefs fans broke the world record for an outdoor sports stadium previously set by Seahawks fans during a game against San Francisco earlier this year.
The Chiefs have long claimed that their facility is the loudest in the NFL.
The record-setting attempt was planned by Chiefs fans but with support of the organization, which paid $7,500 to fly an adjudicator from Guinness to Kansas City to document the effort.
