The Chiefs finally lost last week taking some lustre off this matchup.
So is the fact that Oakland is slipping into irrelevance in the division and the conference. They are coming off a tough division loss.
I am not sure I ever believed KC was the best team in the league but I understand why others thought so. They will look to get back at it.
Oakland can prove a lot if they can deal the Chiefs another loss. That is a nice narrative but it doesn’t mean it is going to happen.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs lost their first game of the season against Pittsburgh last week. All losses suck but this wasn’t all that pretty.
Rookie RB Kareem Hunt has taken the league by storm this season but in this one he was a non factor – 9 rushes for 21 yards.
Without that balance there was way too much on Alex Smith. He didn’t make any major mistakes but he has thrived this season with being able to hit some surprise big gainers.
Oakland is not a very good defensive team which might be the antidote for both of the players above but righting things on the road is tough.
The Chiefs have a lot of banged up players so the short week is doing them no favours.
I am not sure if the Raiders will be able to take advantage similarly but the Chiefs were destroyed on the ground by Le’Veon Bell and the Steelers. Pittsburgh ran for almost 200 yards.
They were not able to put much pressure on Big Ben which is too bad because he has been really shaky this season.
The Chiefs will get another quarterback who has been struggling this week in Derek Carr. He has not had the season we all expected.
Oakland was supposed to be a contender this season. They started 2-0 but have now lost four in a row with Kansas City coming to town. Carr being hurt has made things difficult as it emphasizes their lack of depth.
Carr did not look great in coming back to action against San Diego last week. The home game against the 1-4 Chargers should have been a soft landing spot but he looked like a player not quite right coming back to the fold.
Top target Amari Cooper was a nonfactor and has been all season no matter who was throwing the ball. He has yet to crack 70 yards in a game this season.
Michael Crabtree is better suited to being the secondary option because he doesn’t have the speed to punish defenses deep.
The Oakland defense is OK. They give up yards but have not given up many points this season, just 21 per game.
Khalil Mack is a difference maker and has 4 sacks but the rest of the talent around him is not all that fearsome.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Chiefs -2.5
With the Chiefs losing this looks like a buying opportunity for me. This is not a showdown among top teams like we were hoping for.
NFL Free Week 7 Score Prediction: Kansas City 27 – Oakland 21
This one might move on you so if you are on the Kansas City side I wouldn’t wait around. They should win in methodical fashion.
Look for Derek Carr to be sharper but I am not expecting a shootout.
