KANSAS CITY (AP) — Michael Bush rushed for 137 yards and a touchdown and the short-handed Oakland Raiders beat playoff-bound Kansas City 31-10 Sunday to gain a unique NFL distinction.

The Raiders (8-8) finished 6-0 in the AFC West, the first team since the 1970 merger to go unbeaten in the division and not make the playoffs. The Chiefs (10-6) were 2-4 in the division, but will host a playoff game next weekend as AFC West champions.

Two of Oakland’s best players, running back Darren McFadden and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour, were inactive because of injuries. But the Raiders dominated in just about every way while handing the Chiefs their first home loss.
