Raiders prepare for Week 2, welcome in Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City Chiefs

The Oakland Raiders turn around on a short week and stay at home in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 of the regular season. The matchup will mark the earliest the two clubs have squared off in regular season action since 2009, when the two teams played at Arrowhead Stadium, also in Week 2, and the Raiders escaped with a 13-10 victory. The Chiefs have won the last three contests and hold a 63-52-2 advantage over the Raiders in the all-time regular season series. Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. PT this Sunday, Sept. 15 as both teams enter the Week 2 AFC West showdown 1-0.

The Silver and Black opened 2019 on Monday Night Football against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 and left with a 24-16 victory, giving Head Coach Jon Gruden his 100th career regular season win. QB Derek Carr led the team down the field on the opening possession on a 10-play, 72-yard drive that culminated in a TD pass to newcomer WR Tyrell Williams. The team never looked back after scoring on the opening series, as Carr went on to set a new season-opener career-high with a passer rating of 121.0 after completing 84.6 percent of his passes (22-of-26) for 259 yards and one TD. RB Josh Jacobs scored two times on the ground and totaled 85 rushing yards on 23 carries, while Williams ended up tallying his first 100-yard game as a Raider. On the defensive side of the ball, DE Benson Mayowa tallied two sacks and a forced fumble, one of just two players in the NFL to do so in Week 1, and first-round pick DE Clelin Ferrell chipped in with his first career sack.
