Chiefs Can Tie Raiders for AFC West Lead
AFC West bragging rights will be on the line on Thursday when the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs meet at Arrowhead Stadium.
Oddsmakers currently have the Chiefs listed as 3-point favorites versus the Raiders, while the game’s total is sitting at 46½.
The weather conditions just may help the 9-3 Chiefs cool off the hot 10-2 Raiders. The battle is for control of the AFC West. Oakland is the leader and the Chiefs sit a game behind. But Kansas City won the first game between the teams 26-10 back in October in Oakland. Since that game the Raiders have not lost. They have racked up six consecutive victories by an average margin of nine points. Carr has become the first player in NFL history to throw five game-winning touchdown passes in the fourth quarter or overtime in a season.
The Raiders have a half-dozen victories this season that came with strong fourth-quarter comebacks. It’s a mentality that’s changed around Oakland with Del Rio in charge.
