The battle of the worst of the AFC West this weekend in the Bay Area. You really can’t look at this game any other way. Kansas City comes in trying to turn things around after giving up 54 points at home to the Buffalo Bills. Oakland has other plans I’m sure.
The Raiders come home after playing their best game of the season last Sunday in a 31-10 victory over the Denver Broncos. Oakland’s defense was up to the task in taking the division leaders down in front of their hometown fans. Oakland has had a string of disappointing home games this season. After squandering chances to beat San Diego and Carolina and then getting crushed by the Falcons, Oakland can add another home win to it’s record by just playing smart and coming in with a similar game plan that they applied last week.
I can’t see any reason why the Raiders won’t win this game. I mean, it’s Kansas City! Even Jamarcus Russell and company should be able to put yards and points on the board over KC’s inept defense.
It will be a huge disappointment if the Raiders don’t win this one, given KC is going to be missing Patrick Surtain and Donnie Edwards, two of their best defensive players. Oakland wins this one 37-12.
