Thursday Night Football features two of the biggest surprises in the NFL this season.
The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs enter play at 10-2 and 9-3, respectively, which makes for a very interesting game here on Thursday.
The Raiders just keep on winning and it seems as if nothing can slow this team down.
Oakland enters play winners of 6 straight games and comes in off a win over the the Bills in shootout fashion as they put up 38 points with their impressive young core.
The Raiders erased a 15 point deficit, as QB Derek Carr played through a pinky injury in the come from behind win.
Carr finished with 2 touchdowns on 19 of 35 passing, as he continued to keep the team on the field and kept the drives moving. He once again protected the ball, not throwing any interceptions which has been his biggest key this year.
He has his offensive line to thank as well. The Raiders have allowed a league low 12 sacks against.
Latavius Murray got the job done on the ground to help take the load off Carr. Murray finished with 82 yards on 20 rushes and added a pair of touchdowns in the win.
The duo will have to do just as much here, as this could turn into another shootout, like Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City had a bit more drama than the Raiders on Sunday that resulted in their 2nd win of the season.
The Chiefs trailed 28-27 with just 2 minutes to go and saw the Falcons going for two to make it a 3 point game.
Eric Berry, who already recorded a pick six in the game, intercepted a pass and ran it back to give the Chiefs a 29-28 win.
Kansas City’s defense continues to be the biggest key to their success, as they lead the league in takeaways.
The Chiefs have forced 25 turnovers thus far, doing it in a variety of ways.
Kansas City took down Oakland early this season, thanks to their defense who had two very timely forced turnovers in what eventually was a 26-10 win.
Look for the Chiefs to try and control the tempo here offensively, as they don’t want Derek Carr on the field, able to get into a rhythm early on.
Kansas City has won 10 of their last 11 home games, but have gone just 4-7 ATS in that span.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Kansas City -3
The Chiefs are playing extremely well at home and with this being a small number to cover, expect their defense to fluster the young Raiders offense.
