The Chiefs prepare for the Raiders who are struggling on offense and defense as they try to get past their four game losing streak.
The Chiefs actually practiced on Tuesday and there weren’t many changes from the injury report from Monday. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Mitch Morse were both limited as they try to make their way back from injuries. Albert Wilson again didn’t practice but I’m thinking they believe he will play as they released Marcus Kemp earlier this week. Tyreek Hill again practiced in full and the Chiefs overall look to be getting much healthier but more likely to be next week.
Looking at this game on Thursday night it doesn’t look like a good match up for the Raiders. They have a defense that hasn’t played well and their offense is struggling too. The Chiefs as a whole played poorly against the Steelers but the Raiders don’t have the offense going or the defense to compete. Kansas City should be able to take an even more commanding lead in the AFC West after the game on Thursday night.

The Chiefs have an interesting stretch of games coming up over the next four games. What as once thought of as a tough part of the schedule is all of a sudden looking much easier. The Raiders are 2-4 and the Broncos haven’t beat anyone with a winning record. The Dallas Cowboys are 2-3 and the Giants finally got their first win against the Broncos. Heading out of the bye week we know Reid’s history is great so you would think they should be 9-1 heading into the home stretch. If they can get through to the bye week without another loss they should be in great shape for the number one seed in the AFC.
