The Kansas City Chiefs have turned around their horrid year into a potential playoff contender for the 2015 season.

As it stands right now, the Chiefs would be in the playoffs and taking on a familiar foe in the Indianapolis Colts; a huge turn around from the thoughts of having the top pick in the NFL Draft. They also have the easiest remaining schedule from the combined records of their remaining opponents, one of which is the hated rival, the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders have been in the bottom have the NFL for a long time, but a good quarterback with offensive pieces around him has turned the woeful team into a real threat. The Chiefs have not played either of their divisional games against them, and this upcoming Sunday marks the first time the resurgent Chiefs travel to the “Black Hole.”

KC, as it stands right now, is favored over the home team to steal the victory from the Raiders, but as fans of the Chiefs know, never count out Oakland. This is an extremely winnable game for the organization, but they know better than to walk in thinking the victory is assured. Who can forget the heart-wrenching defeat last year, when the win-less Raiders beat the Chiefs on a rainy Thursday?

In order for the Chiefs to beat down Oakland, here are three ways the team can leave the black hole
with a victory and get their sixth straight victory.
