KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs entered Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders with 21 sacks through the first five games.

When the final second ticked off the clock at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs had 31 on the season.

Ten sacks against an AFC West bitter rival. Ten sacks in a game.

“That is crazy,” safety Quintin Demps said in the Chiefs locker room after Sunday’s game. “I hope you all fantasy people started the Chiefs D.”

Even other Chiefs players were unaware of the havoc the Chiefs defense put on the Raiders.

“Ten sacks?” linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “I didn’t know it was 10. I got about two of them. Everybody’s trying to eat around here, everybody’s hungry, everybody’s thirsty. We’re not done yet, 6-0.”
