2. The Chiefs secondary needs to cause some havoc.

The Raiders are a good passing team, evident by ranking eighth in the NFL, passing for an average of 266 yards per game. Current Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, has been something of a savior for Oakland, because of their streak of bad QBs over the past few years.

Their wide receivers are anchored by the fourth-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Amari Cooper. While his first year has seen some ups and downs the rookie has accumulated a total of 851 yards and four touchdowns. The also have veteran Michael Crabtree, formerly a teammate of Alex Smith from San Francisco, who has six touchdowns on the year.

They also have running backs that can catch the ball out of the backfield such as running back Latavius Murray and fullback Marcel Reece. The Raiders know that the Chiefs secondary, while good, can get burned on occasion with speed on the outside, much like Cooper’s. KC will need to shut down the rookie and keep its eyes open on the other receiving threats of the Raiders in order to win and keep the streak alive.
