The Raiders may not be an elite team but at 4-1 they have the record of one. Expected to break through and make a playoff run they are certainly not to be taken lightly.
With the Broncos having lost they are tied for the AFC West lead and have a great chance to put even more distance between them and K.C.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET with Oakland looking to continue to prove they are playoff worthy.
K.C. was off last week so they should not be surprised by anything the Raiders do…in theory.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are 2-2 and it does not look like they are going to be quite as sharp as they were a year ago when they made the playoffs. With this group you kind of know what you are going to get every week.
Sometimes it is good enough and sometimes it isn’t.
The last time we saw KC they were getting whipped in Pittsburgh, in fact both of their losses this season have been on the road.
The offense is nothing to fear but Kansas City can still play defense, or at least has the players to make us think they still can because the numbers are not that great so far.
KC has to be about the most boring team in the NFL these days.
They are neither good nor terrible and they always seem to beat the bad teams but they are hard to get excited about. Especially with a defense giving up 23ppg.
I want to give Andy Reid some props because I know he will have his team prepared off a bye but this does not look like a great spot to me.
It looks like the Raiders may be lucky but at the same time they set the tone in their opener and sometimes the game favours those teams that are willing to take a lot of chances.
Three of their four wins have been by a field goal or less.
The offense was supposed to be realy good this year and so far that has come through. With Derek Carr leading the way they are third in yards and 5th in points. They have really good balance too, they are not just bombing away.
The defense is last in yards allowed though, they are going to have to improve on D if they want to compete all season long.
Khalil Mack has not been the force of nature that we was a year ago. Bringing in Bruce Irvin to rush off the edge was supposed to help him but he has not found his rhythm yet.
Look for Oakland to continue to be able to put up yards even against KC.
Even if they are stifled a little I expect they will be in a good spot because the Chiefs offense allows them to not need be perfect.

With the way they have been pulling out close games it is hard to imagine they can’t get this one at home. They might even roll them.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Oakland 27 – Kansas City 17
This one will probably be settled early. If the Chiefs are on their game they will establish the pace, if not look for the Raiders to get up early and not have to win it late.
