Locker Room Buzz: Kansas City Chiefs
By Adam Teicher
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Observed in the locker room after the Kansas City Chiefs' 24-7 win over the Oakland Raiders:
Record noise: Chiefs fans set a Guinness Book of World Records mark for an outdoor event by registering 137.5 decibels during the fourth quarter. The previous record was 136.6 decibels set by a Seattle Seahawks crowd. Even before Chiefs fans set the record, it was loud at Arrowhead Stadium. The Raiders had three penalties each for delay of game and false start. “I give this to the crowd," coach Andy Reid said, referring to the six penalties. “That’s pretty impressive."
Breaking the streak: The Chiefs broke a six-game losing streak to the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium. The previous Chiefs victory happened in 2006, when they were coached by Herm Edwards. The Chiefs have changed coaches three times since. They have just three players who were on the roster the last time they beat Oakland at home: linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson and punter Dustin Colquitt.
Injury report: The Chiefs played parts of the game, including the end, without left tackle Branden Albert. He hyperextended his elbow, returned to the game and bruised his knee. Nose tackle Dontari Poe sprained his ankle but stayed in the game.
