The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are ready for Week 7 of the National Football League. This is the Thursday Night Football Game of the Week between AFC West teams. The Oakland Raiders come into the game as losers of four straight games. The Raiders are coming off a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last week.
The Kansas City Chiefs are also coming off a loss. The Chiefs were 5-0 to start the season, but lost on Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs continue to lead the division over second place Denver, who is 3-2 on the season. In this game, the Kansas City Chiefs are -3 over the Oakland Raiders.
Raiders In a Must Win Spot
The Oakland Raiders, led by head coach Jack Del Rio are pretty much in a must win situation here in Week 7. The Raiders cannot afford to lose their fifth straight game. The Raiders in their four losses have scored just 53 points. In the two wins over the Titans and Jets to start the season, Oakland was scoring 35.5 points per game.
The offense for the Raiders has seen Derek Carr miss some time, which is part of the reason they are 27th in all of the league in passing yards. Oakland’s Michael Crabtree leads the team with 25 receptions, 304 yards and 5 touchdowns on the season.
Kansas City Looking to Remain Unbeaten on the Road
The Kansas City Chiefs have three wins on the road already this season. In those three road games, the Chiefs have scored 36 points per game. The Chiefs could not get the offense going, in the loss to the Steelers, as they finished with just 13 points. The Chiefs on the season are second in all of the NFL with 29.5 points per game.
Tyreek Hill leads the Kansas City receiving core with 390 yards on the season. He has caught 30 passes, and has 2 touchdowns as well. Kareem Hunt is the running back for Kansas City since Spencer Ware went down with an injury. Hunt has rushed 106 times for 360 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Chiefs Keep Raiders Struggling
The Kansas City Chiefs have some outstanding offense. They did not show it in the loss to the Steelers, but the expectation is that they will get back on track in this game. Look for Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill to have a monster nigh over the Raiders defense that maybe has some decent numbers, but are not real strong.
The Oakland Raiders are just not right. Something is not clicking with the Raiders, and the nation will get a chance to see that on Thursday Night Football. The Kansas City Chiefs are going to win this game over the Oakland Raiders. Bet on the Kansas City Chiefs -3 over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football.
