Oakland Raiders must be feeling pretty good about themselves right now. They are 4-1 to start the season and playing great football on the offensive side of the ball. After watching Denver losing to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday Night Football, they know how important this game is. A win against the Chiefs would put them right at the top of AFC South.
Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a bye week, and they are fresh and ready. Jamal Charles says he feels fully healthy and ready for a big workload against the Raiders. Them having Charles back will help both in the passing game as well as in their running game. Raiders have 32nd ranked defense, and it seems that Chiefs’ running back has the perfect matchup on paper.
Raiders are bad on defense but have one of the best offenses in the whole NFL. They are ranked 4th in the NFL on offense with Derek Carr running the show. They are giving him great protection as he was hit only 11 times so far and sacked five times. He has great weapons around him in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, and he is making the most of it.image source: nflview.com
Raiders are looking like a Playoff ready team. They have a chance to make that next step this weekend and to overtake Broncos in the divisional rankings after Week 6. We think they will win this game in a high-scoring affair. Oakland Raiders will survive the Chiefs and end up victorious with the final score being 30:27.
