The Kansas City Chiefs have had trouble starting fast this year but they did just that on Sunday as Kendrick Lewis picked off Kyle Boller's first pass attempt and, boom, KC had a 7-0 lead over the Oakland Raiders.

The Chiefs didn't stop there adding three more touchdowns en route to a 28-0 victory, the first shutout in Oakland in these two teams' 52-year history.

Overall, I think you have to give the team an A for their performance.

The defense clearly gets an A. Anytime you shut an opponent out in the NFL you deserve all the praise coming your way, especially with a whopping six turnovers. The offense wasn't as strong but they still put together a pair of scoring drives that ended in touchdowns, not field goals. Special teams was solid as well as Oakland didn't have any kick or punt returns, something that haunted KC the last time these two teams played in Oakland.

Give us your grade of the Chiefs in the poll below.
