The Kansas City Chiefs dominated the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, 28-0, in a game that included six interceptions from two Raiders quarterbacks. One of those guys, Carson Palmertold 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area that he knew about 15 plays last weekend.

"Oh man, I knew like about 15 plays and we ran the same 15 plays over and over again," Palmer said.

Dang. That's not very many. Head coach Hue Jackson said after the game that he never planned to start Palmer (what's that, Adam Schefter?) and Palmer told 95.7 that he getting the call to play was a "complete shock."

"I was told I was not going to play. I didn't know the offense, I also hadn't been training and working out. So it was a complete shock to me at halftime when he told me, 'Hey, you know we're going to get you in, in the third quarter.'"

Luckily for the Chiefs, the game still counts despite the Raiders putting in a quarterback that wasn't prepared.

OK, we're done with Oakland. Let's move 100 percent of our focus onto San Diego (sorta like the Chiefs players have done).
