Raiders On Pace To Break The '98 Chiefs Penalty Record This Weekend

The Oakland Raiders have had an incredible run on penalties this season highlighted by last week's 15-bagger against the Kansas City Chiefs. As we noted last week, the Raiders are coming very, very close to breaking the penalty record currently held by the '98 Chiefs.

The Mercury News lays out where the Raiders currently stand:

With 155 penalties for 1,294 yards, the Raiders appear to be locks to surpass the existing records of 158 penalties and 1,304 yards, set by the Kansas City Chiefs in 1998.

That's four penalties and 11 yards to break the record. If the Raiders game against the San Diego Chargers this weekend is anything like last week's, they'll have that locked up by the end of the first quarter.

So, what do you think? Do the Raiders break the record?

It seems fitting that Oakland holds a record like this.
