Here's a quick recap of all the games between the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders in Kansas City since that last Chiefs victory almost six years ago. We'll start with that actual game.

November 19th, 2006 - Kansas City Chiefs - 17, Oakland Raiders - 13

The Chiefs jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in this game on Larry Johnson's 5-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter. The Oakland Raiders responded with 13 unanswered points to close out the first half to take a 13-7 lead into halftime.

The Chiefs defense came out and shutout quarterback Aaron Brooks and the Raiders in the second half of this game. A Lawrence Tynes 37-yard field goal in the third quarter closed the gap at 13-10 before another Larry Johnson touchdown run early in the fourth quarter gave the Chiefs the 17-13 lead and eventual victory. Johnson finished the game with 31 carries for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Chiefs moved on to 6-4 while the Raiders fell to 2-8.

The Chiefs did not turn the ball over at all in this game.

November 25th, 2007 - Kansas City Chiefs 17, Oakland Raiders - 20

Justin Vargas led the Oakland Raiders to this victory on 22 carries for 139 yards and a touchdown. It was the first 100+ yard performance from an Oakland Raiders running back in Kansas City in 29 years.

Kolby Smith was the bright spot for the Chiefs offensively as he finished the day with 150 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. Chiefs starting quarterback Brodie Croyle finished the day 12-23 for 145 yards and an interception.

The Chiefs actually led this game into the fourth quarter before a 14-yard TD run from Vargas with just over 9 minutes remaining gave the Oakland Raiders the lead and eventual victory. The Chiefs fell to 4-7 while the Raiders improved to 3-8.

September 14th, 2008 - Kansas City Chiefs 8, Oakland Raiders 23

This was the game in which Jamarcus Russel finished 6-17 for 55 yards and a victory as the starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders. Yeah, seriously.

Running backs Darren McFadden and Michael Bush had a field day for the Raiders combining for 254 yards on 37 carries with a touchdown a piece. The Chiefs didn't actually score in this game until late in the fourth quarter with just four minutes remaining on a pass from Tyler Thigpen to Tony Gonzalez to make it 16-8. A late touchdown run from Michael Bush sealed the game for the Raiders at 23-8.

The Chiefs starting quarterback for this game was Tyler Thigpen and he finished 14-33 for 151 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Larry Johnson finished with 22 yards on 12 carries. The Chiefs fell to 0-2 on the season while the Raiders improved to 1-1.

September 20th, 2009 - Kansas City Chiefs - 10, Oakland Raiders - 13

This was Matt Cassel's debut in Kansas City. In another display of No.1 pick ability Jamarcus Russel finished the day 7-24 for 109 yards, and a victory for the Oakland Raiders. How, just how?

Each team could only manage a field goal in the first half before Sebastian Janikowski's 54-yard field goal in the third quarter gave the Raiders the lead at 6-3. Then with just under 3 minutes to play in the game Matt Cassel hit Dwayne Bowe for a 29-yard touchdown pass to give the Chiefs the 10-6 lead.

But with just over a minute remaining in the game Darren McFadden scored on a 5-yard touchdown run to give the Raiders the 13-10 victory. Bobby Wade was the Chiefs leading receiver with 72 yards on 6 receptions. The Chiefs fell to 0-2 while the Raiders moved to 1-1.

January 2nd, 2011 - Kansas City Chiefs 10, Oakland Raiders - 31

We all remember this game as the Chiefs got blown out at home to end the regular season a few days after offensive coordinator Charlie Weis announced his decision to move on to the University of Florida. It was also the game where former Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer was inducted into the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame at halftime.

Matt Cassel finished the game 11-33 for 115 yards and two interceptions in one of the worst games of his career. Jamaal Charles finished the game with 87 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown. He also just narrlowly missed Jim Brown's record of 6.4 yards per carry on the season and he finished the season at 6.38.

Current Chiefs cornerback and former Raider, Stanford Routt, added a pick six late in the fourth quarter of this game that extended the Raiders lead to 31-10. Michael Bush finished the game with 137 yards on 25 carries and added a touchdown.

Cassel was sacked seven times in this game as the Chiefs fell to 10-6 and the Raiders evened up their season record at 8-8. The Raiders finished the season with a perfect 6-0 record in the division but missed the playoffs. Heh.

December 24th, 2011 - Kansas City Chiefs - 10, Oakland Raiders - 13

They all sting but this one stung a lot. It will forever be known as the game the Chiefs could have gone back to the playoffs had they not had a couple of blocked field goals.

Carson Palmer and Kyle Orton had a battle royale of adequate quarterback play as each finished the game with one touchdown and two interceptions. Sebastian Janikowski hit a 31-yard field goal with just under three minutes left in the game to give the Raiders a 13-6 lead late in the fourth quarter.

Kyle Orton then led the Chiefs down the field with under two minutes remaining in the game with a large chunk of yardage coming on a 49-yard pass play to Dexter McCluster. It set up the 3-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe that tied the game with just over a minute remaining.

The Chiefs defense forced a 3-and-out on the ensuing Raiders possession and got the ball back with a chance to win. We all know what happens after this and it just makes me angry so I will stop there.

That brings us to this Sunday. Hopefully we can end this ridiculous streak and get back to beating our hated rival on our own field.

What else do we all remember about these games?
