On This Date In Raiders History:

December 13, 1969

In the regular-season finale, the Raiders welcomed the Kansas City Chiefs to the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in a game to decide the AFC West. The Raiders came in at 11-1-1, while the Chiefs came in at 11-2.

The teams battled and the Raiders emerged victorious with a 10-6 victory. A Charlie Smith touchdown catch from quarterback Daryle Lamonica in the fourth quarter proved to be the difference in the game. Lamonica finished with 188 passing yards but also threw two interceptions. He found Smith for an eight-yard score to put the Raiders up 10-0. The offense could not do much and their leading rusher was Marv Hubbard with just 39 yards.

On defense, the Raiders held the Chiefs to just one touchdown and 194 total yards. The Chiefs were able to move the ball on the ground but managed just 47 yards through the air. The Raiders were unable to force any turnovers but kept the Chiefs out of the end zone.

That season, the Raiders finished 12-1-1 and lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship.
