Chiefs vs. Raiders: Final Predictions

Kirby Lee/Image of Sport-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to salvage their season (or at least some respect) today when the Oakland Raiders come to town.

Records aside, this game is about the rivalry. The Raiders and Chiefs have both fallen on hard times but that never fails to take away the sizzle from these games.

Oakland has won five straight games at Arrowhead Stadium, a trend that the Chiefs need to put an end to today.

I don’t feel right picking the Raiders over the Chiefs but that is what I’m going to do again today. I said a few weeks ago that I was done picking the Chiefs to win until they showed me some evidence that they are capable of doing so. Thus far, that hasn’t really happened. In fact, in my estimation, the Chiefs have played just four quarters of decent football all season long.

The Chiefs are more than capable of beating the Raiders but being capable hasn’t stopped them from losing so far, so there is no reason to believe that will change today.

Something is broken in KC.

Raiders 30, Chiefs 12

What are your final predictions for today’s game?

    The Chiefs can win, we have the unknown of who Quinn is or isn’t, but what does that all mean? The Chiefs are a pretty crappy team this year.

    But it is the raiders…..I cannot EVER predict the raiders win a game. i also would not bet a dollar the Chiefs will win in 2012. So with both feet, here goes. Chiefs 17 raiders 10. Just not all that happy about saying it in public

    my final prediction is chiefs win a sloppy game 16 – 13 over the raiders. the chiefs will not lead in this game…..
    my madden 12 silulation (i update the rosters of all teams to the 2012 season. so it was the ’12 chiefs vs the ’12 raiders when i silulated it. and yes this was on the ps3.) had the chiefs over the raiders in a VERY defensive game 6 – 3.
    then i played madden 12 against the raiders as my chiefs and offcourse i kicked the shit out of them 30 – 0 (yes i had quinn as my qb)
    well, time to go 2-5. yes? well, i hope…..ha ha GO CHIEFS! CRUSH THE RAIDERS!

    The faider streak in Arrowhead ends today! The Chiefs Halloween curse on our opponents over rules (See dolts 2010 & 2011). By the way we own them in the Red Hole 8-1 over the last 9 years most recently 28-0. I know this year has sucked but the good is there if you look a little harder. Quinn will look like the top 1st round pick he was supposed to be and we will throw the ball down the field opening up the field for Charles to school the classless faiders = CHIEFS 24 faiders 15

    Damn hurricane sandy is screwing up the signal pretty bad. Hope we have power to be able to watch the game. Hope the threads today are filled with good detailed commentary!!

    • Chief Hokie

      True that, I am in VB as well. Haven’t noticed any signal problems yet but the wind sure is picking up.

  • Chief Hokie

    Chiefs win 13-10

  • Lyle Graversen

    Brats on grill, beer in hand, I’m feeling positive.

    KC 24 oak 13
