Chiefs @ Raiders

Recommended Posts





The Chiefs have gone 8-2 against the Raiders since Andy Reid became head coach in 2013. The two losses both came in Oakland on late touchdowns -- in 2014 on a James Jones TD with 1:42 left and in 2017 on a Michael Crabtree TD with no time remaining.

Kansas City has won 19 of its last 20 divisional games, with the lone loss coming last year at Oakland. Only two teams have ever won 20 of 21 divisional games: the 1985-87 Bears and the 1998-2000 Titans.

Oakland was down just three points entering the fourth quarter last week in Baltimore, but the Raiders were outscored 14-0 in the final stanza. Oakland has been outscored by 6.5 points per game in the fourth quarter this season, which would be the second-worst mark in the Super Bowl era (2007 Rams -6.7).

The Chiefs are averaging 7.05 yards per play, which would be the best by any team in NFL history, surpassing the 2000 Rams (6.98). The Raiders are allowing 6.54 yards per play, which would be the third-worst mark by any team in NFL history, behind only the 1934 Reds (6.76) and the 2015 Saints (6.64).

In his last game before the bye, Patrick Mahomes became the first player in NFL history to tally at least 450 passing yards and six touchdown passes in a loss, as the Chiefs came up short against the Rams, 54-51. Mahomes also threw three interceptions, becoming the first player with at least six TD passes and three interceptions in a game since fellow Chief Len Dawson on November 1, 1964 vs. Denver.

Derek Carr has gone six straight starts without throwing an interception, one shy of the longest streak in franchise history (Rich Gannon, seven straight in 2001). Carr is also completing 68.5 percent of his passes this season, which would break Gannon's franchise record of 67.6 percent, set in 2002.
