Thursday Night Football games are often not exciting and sometimes it seems that they are hurting the overall product. Well, that won’t be the case in Week 14 as we have one of the best matchups on Thursday Night Football. These two teams are battling for the divisional title and Playoff positioning making this duel extremely important.
Raiders are the leading the AFC right now. They have the same record as the New England Patriots, but they have the tiebreaker based on the strength of victory. The company from Oakland was impressive in the second half of the match against the Bills as they scored 29 to knock off Buffalo.
Chiefs had a tough week and a tough matchup against the Falcons in Atlanta, but they were able to squeak past Matty Ice and his crew after that two-point conversion gone bad for Atlanta. They are good all-around football squad, but will that be enough for them to get the job done against one of the best offensive teams in the league?
This game will take place at Arrowhead, which is a big advantage for the Chiefs. They have one of the best home crowds in the league. Raiders will have a tough time scoring against this defense, at that stadium.
This is a hard duel to pick. Raiders are for real, but they need to beat the Chiefs in order to make a big statement to the rest of the NFL. Chiefs are difficult to handle at home, and we are picking them to win this game.
Kansas City will be able to slow down Carr and company just enough to outscore them and end up victorious. This won’t be a low-scoring contest, but Raiders won’t reach that high points number as they usually do. We are going to roll with the Chiefs finish at 28:24 and take over as the best in the AFC West.
