The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to continue their fantastic 2013 season with their 11th win at the expense of the struggling Oakland Raiders. A win for Andy Reid's team would clinch the Chiefs' first playoff appearance in three seasons.
The Chiefs made a nice recovery last week win a win over the floundering Washington Redskins, a much-needed victory after they had lost their three previous games. The Chiefs defense will be looking to repeat last week's performance, when they limited the Redskins to 257 total yards.
Another big game from Jamaal Charles -- he ran for a season-high 151 yards -- wouldn't hurt either. Considering the Raiders defense has allowed nearly 300 combined rushing yards over their last two games, Charles should be looking forward to this one.
While there very well may be people out there picking Oakland -- they are likely people known as "Raiders fans" -- the experts here at SB Nation are all picking the Chiefs. So are the experts at ESPN and CBS Sports, so while there is no such thing as a sure bet in the NFL, this might be about as close as you can get.
