Raiders overcome early season slide to move into tie for 1st

While this game is important to the Raiders, it is more crucial to the Chiefs, who can not afford to lose with the Los Angeles Chargers also tied for the division lead and playing a weaker opponent at home this week. Jared Cook and Michael Crabtree have combined for 1,048 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Amari Cooper has 42 receptions.

4 of the Oakland Raiders calls a play against the New York Giants during their National Football League game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on December 3, 2017 in Oakland, California. Defensively, the Chiefs are yielding 22.8 points and 382.2 total yards (252.8 in passing and 129.4 in rushing) per game.

If losing teams like the New York Giants and New York Jets can beat Kansas City, then why not Oakland? Smith has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last eight games. Daniel Sorensen leads the Kansas City Chiefs with 78 tackles, Justin Houston has 8.5 sacks and Marcus Peters has three interceptions. Oakland has the most hard slate, including a road trip to Kansas City, hosting the Cowboys, traveling to Philadelphia, and then heading to Los Angeles for their final game. The Chiefs have won five of the past six meetings and have gone 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus AFC West opponents.

The Raiders would bounce back with two consecutive wins over two of the worst teams in football. They have ascended over the past month into a three-way tie atop the AFC West with the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders.

For the Chiefs, they were just swept by all three NY teams-make that lesser NY teams. On the flip side, Oakland is 2-7-1 ATS in its last 10 games overall and 2-12 SU in the team's previous 14 during Week 14.

The Chargers also have a favorable schedule, hosting the Redskins, traveling to Kansas City, traveling to the Jets turf, and hosting the Raiders.

The Chargers are the hot team right now. While Chiefs fans aren't the most optimistic right now, this division is still in play for Kansas City.
