What to watch for

After starting the season 3-4, the Kansas City Chiefs have won five straight games on their way to the top of the AFC West. The Raiders will need to step up in all three phases to stop the momentum of Patrick Mahomes and Co., but their biggest challenge will be facing KC's defense, which has allowed only 11.2 points per game since their win streak began in Week 8.

Though the Chiefs beat the Broncos 22-9 on Sunday night, offensive stars Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce struggled in the game, recording just 49 receiving yards between the two of them. If the Raiders defense can limit these two playmakers, while Carr and the offense get going, things could trend the right way for the Silver and Black.

Series history

The Chiefs hold the all-time series lead 67-53-2 against the Raiders, dating back to the two teams' first meeting in 1960 when the Chiefs were known as the Dallas Texans. In their last matchup on Nov. 14, 2021, the Chiefs took home a 41-14 victory over the Silver and Black.
