Series History – During week 13 this season Kansas City was victorious 34-20 at Oakland. The Chiefs have won the last 2 meetings.

Prediction – The Raiders would like to finish their season at .500, which would be a 5 game improvement over last season. Meanwhile the Chiefs are rolling, ever since their 1-5 start they are 9-0 and still have a chance to win the AFC West division title. With a win and a Broncos loss the Chiefs would clinch the division title. I think that motivation alone will have them ready to pounce on the Raiders.
