In two of the first five weeks of the season, Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston has captured AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Teammate Tamba Hali would seem to have a shot at matching Houston in Week Six.
Hali has led a ferocious Chiefs pass rush on Sunday, notching 3.5 of the club’s eight sacks thus far.
The Raiders’ offensive line, which has dealt with injuries all season, lost center Andre Gurode (knee) and right tackle Tony Pashos (groin) on Sunday.
The Chiefs lead 24-7 late in the fourth quarter.
