The Oakland Raiders can grab a piece of first place with a win on Sunday, and here are three bold predictions for the game inside Arrowhead Stadium.

Fresh off of a devastating 34-3 loss, the Oakland Raiders are currently in second place in the AFC West, and are still very much in the hunt for the playoffs. While last week's performance was less of a fluke than a show of what can happen when you underestimate a team, it was a wake up call for a young team that has been playing good football for three out of the past four weeks.

This Sunday, the Raiders will travel to Kansas City, where the 7-4 Chiefs will be waiting fresh off of their bye week. The Chiefs have done very well under Andy Reid coming off the bye, and with cold temperatures on the horizon, the Silver and Black head into that game as a 10-point underdog.

Still, this is a Raiders team that has surprised everybody this season, and are more than capable of going into Arrowhead Stadium and coming away with a victory. In order to do so, they will have to play a complete game on both sides of the ball, something they failed to do this past weekend against the lowly New York Jets.

Leading up to this must-win game which could propel the Raiders into a tie for first place in the AFC West with the Chiefs, lets look at some bold predictions for the game.
