Crennel said he’s focused on picking up wins down the stretch, even though the Chiefs are in position for the first overall pick in the NFL draft. And even though he’d never acknowledge it, Crennel knows that his job could be on the line _ along with that of general manager Scott Pioli _ once the season comes to an end.

After playing the Raiders, Kansas City finishes up at home against Indianapolis and at Denver.

“We’ve just got to keep finding ways to get better,” safety Tysyn Hartman said. “I mean, that’s what today’s all about, getting in and watching film and watching the game, and then getting on to next week.”
