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.

Jason Campbell threw a 47-yard pass to rookie Jacoby Ford in overtime to set up a 33-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski that gave the Oakland Raiders their biggest win in eight years, a 23-20 victory over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Matt Cassel’s three touchdown passes included a trick play that caught San Francisco completely flat-footed and the surprising Kansas City Chiefs remained unbeaten with a 31-10 whipping Sunday of the hapless, winless 49ers.
