Raiders vs Chiefs: AFC West Clash Begins NFL Week 12 Betting Card
Kansas City Chiefs: Slow start has given way to a winning run
Since opening the season with a 2-3 record, Kansas City has turned it on as the Chiefs have posted five straight wins by a combined 122-70 final score. Two of the wins were on the road (23-20 over San Diego and 17-13 over Buffalo) and Kansas City is coming off a 24-20 home win over the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks. KC varies vastly on both sides of the ball as they are 4th in rushing yards and 31st in passing yards on offence while they are 1st against the pass but just 25th versus the run on defense. After lighting up Seattle for 178 total yards, RB Jamaal Charles gets a Raiders run defense that ranks 27th and is allowing 129.8 rushing yards per game.
Oakland Raiders: Running out of chances to avoid a winless season
Although they are a long way from breaking the almost unbreakable record, from 1976-1977 the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 26 consecutive games, the Raiders are getting close to joining the Detroit Lions as the only other team to lose 16 games in a single season. As it stands right now, the Raiders have lost 16 straight games dating back to a 23-19 Week 12 home loss to Tennessee last season. During their imperfect run, Oakland has been outscored by a 475-280 count – including a 268-152 margin in their ten losses this season. The Raiders rank last in total offense and points scored as they average 276.4 yards and 15.2 points scored per game this season.
Chiefs vs Raiders Prediction
We sense a possible prime time blowout here as the 11 TNF games have had an average 34-14 final score with nine being decided by 13 points or more and six by 20 plus. The Raiders can’t run the ball, the Chiefs biggest weakness on defense, and rookie QB Dereck Carr (9 INT 6 FUM) is going to see waves of red all night as Kansas City sits tied for third with 30 sacks. In their five home games Oakland has lost by 16, 24, 3, 11 and 24 points. In the middle of their 2-5 late season swoon last year, Kansas City rolled into the Black Hole and ripped the Raiders 56-31 during Week 15 action – Charles scored five touchdowns.
