AFC West Week 13 preview and predictions: Raiders, Chiefs battle for first
By Brad Weiss
Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs
The Oakland Raiders invade Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, where they will look to pick up a win and move into first place in the AFC West. However, the Kansas City Chiefs will be waiting, and coming off their bye week, they should be able to put together a solid gameplan against a Raiders team that looked terrible this past Sunday.
Their last time out, the Raiders were blown out on the road by the New York Jets, falling 34-3 to Sam Darnold and company. Derek Carr struggled mightily, they could not get anything done on the ground, and the Raiders defense was absolutely shredded by Darnold and the Jets sub-par passing game.
Carr has struggled inside Arrowhead Stadium, and with the Chiefs coming off their bye week, they will likely take care of business at home. Even with a loss, the Raiders playoff hopes are not dashed, but they need to pick up the play over the last four games of the season to make the postseason in their last season in the Bay Area.
