On This Date In Raiders History:
December 16, 2012
The Raiders and Chiefs came into their Week 15 matchup with just five combined victories, but the Raiders were looking for a season sweep of their division rivals.
The offenses were unable to find the end zone and Raider kick Sebastian Janikowki’s five field goals provided the only scoring in the 15-0 victory. He kicked field goals of 20, 30, 41, 50 and 57 yards en route to his second-most field goals in one game. He had a chance to tie his career-high but missed a potential sixth field goal. The Raiders were able to move the ball on the ground, as Darren McFadden finished with 110 yards and Mike Goodson ended with 89 yards. Carson Palmer added another 182 yards through the air but they were unable to score a touchdown.
On defense, the Raiders pitched a shutout behind four sacks and an interception of Chiefs’ quarterback Brady Quinn. Desmond Bryant, Andre Carter, Tommy Kelly and Phillip Wheeler each recorded a sack, while Joselio Hanson picked off Quinn for the only turnover.
That season, the Raiders finished 4-12 and failed to make the playoffs.
