Sounds About Right: Raiders On Pace To Break Single-Season Penalty Record

Did any of you know that the 1998 Kansas City Chiefs are the most penalized team in NFL history? That's the year of the infamous Monday Night Meltdown against the Denver Broncos and I guess I forgot that those Chiefs were the most penalized of all-time.

Surprised it's not the Oakland Raiders who hold that record?

Me too. But that's not to say the Raiders won't hold that record by the end of this season.

As undisciplined as those Chiefs were, this season's Raiders might be even worse. They lead the league in penalties and penalty yards are on pace to shatter the marks that the Chiefs set in 1998. This season's Raiders have committed 140 penalties, putting them on pace for 160, two more than the record-holding Chiefs. This season's Raiders have lost 1,202 penalty yards and are on pace to lose 1,374, 70 more than the record-holding Chiefs.

It would be fitting that the Raiders break this record this year.
