KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If Lane Kiffin does get fired by the Oakland Raiders, he might want to apply for employment in Kansas City.Amid escalating reports that Kiffin was in trouble with owner Al Davis and could be dismissed almost any time, the Raiders rushed for 300 yards Sunday and handed their harried young coach a 23-8 victory over the mistake-prone Chiefs. Kiffin has only five wins in 18 games with the Silver and Black, but two have been at Kansas City's expense.

Chadiha: NFL's 'temp' position
Lane Kiffin could wake up Monday celebrating a Sunday victory -- but out of a job as Raiders head coach. Kiffin's "what, me worry?" approach is a wise one to take, writes Jeffri Chadiha. Story
It was the Chiefs' first 2-point conversion in almost two years, and the first time KC had three quarterbacks complete a pass since Dec. 31, 2006 against Jacksonville. ... Mario Henderson made his first NFL start, replacing left tackle Kwame Harris, who was on Oakland's inactive list with a knee injury.
