SB Nation's partner OddsShark has listed the Chiefs as a 1-point favorite.
The Raiders currently sit at 7-7 with two games remaining. That means the Raiders must win out in order to improve on their breakout season in 2010. While making the playoffs is certainly the primary focus of the Oakland Raiders, there should also be concern for next season. After all of the success and improvement shown by the Raiders, to finish this season with the same or worse record than last season would be devastating for the psyche of the team.
They'll take on the Kansas City Chiefs, a proposition that sounded a lot less tougher a week ago than it does today. That's because the Chiefs, after firing head coach Todd Haley, took the field on Sunday and bested the Green Bay Packers, handing them their first defeat of the season.
Those same Packers beat the Raiders pretty badly just a couple weeks ago, by a score of 46-16. That should give the Chiefs a lot of confidence, especially at home at Arrowhead, a notoriously tough stadium to play in. The Chiefs are not exactly the model of consistency though, with a 6-8 record and the aforementioned firing of their head coach. This could all mean some kind of resurgence, especially with quarterback Kyle Orton under center.
