Revenge game for the Chiefs! The Raiders picked up a huge upset win in the first meeting between the sides at Arrowhead. Can the Raider complete a sweep of the World Champs or will Mahomes and the Chiefs even up the scores with their divisional foes?
The Raiders win in Kansas remains not only the only blip on the Chiefs otherwise perfect 8-1 record but also the only interception Mahomes has thrown this season was against the Silver & Black otherwise it’s been a perfect unblemished season for Mahomes and the Chiefs. On Offense of course it’s been consistently productive but the Defense has been fantastic especially against the pass.
The Raiders have been one of the better teams in football this season so far and if they manage a second win over the Chiefs will really put the NFL on high alert and it’s not something I think is beyond the realm of possibility after all they’ve done it once and have a play caller in Jon Gruden who seemed to have the Chiefs Defense schemed up perfectly in their first meeting.
I actually like the upset here. The Raiders are playing good football and seem to have the bit between their teeth when playing the Chiefs and with the odds on offer here I’m going to take the Raiders to upset the Chiefs again here.
PREDICTION: RAIDERS 33 – 30 CHIEFS
