Las Vegas Raiders looking for season sweep of Kansas City Sunday night
After splitting the 22 matchups during the 1960s, the Chiefs and Raiders have seen their own run of dominance in the rivalry since. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was the Silver and Black who consistently got the better of the Chiefs, putting together a 24-13-2 record against Kansas City, and capturing three Super Bowls along the way.
From 1975 through the 1978 NFL season, the Raiders won seven straight games in the rivalry, before being swept during the 1979 season, and losing their first game to the Chiefs in Oakland since the 1969 AFL Championship Game.
In the 1980s, the Raiders were one of the dominant teams in football, winning two Super Bowls from 1980 through 1984, and posting a 6-3 record in that span, with one game being cancelled due to a player’s strike. During the 1990s, Kansas City dominated the rivalry, posting a 18-3 record, and from 1989 through the 1999 season, the Chiefs won 19 of 21 games.
The 2000s brought more pain in the rivalry for the Silver and Black, as they lost seven straight in Oakland, and nine straight overall. Oakland dominated early in the decade, winning four straight, but it was all downhill after the 2002 campaign.
