Kansas City saw their hopes of an unbeaten season die at Arrowhead last Sunday, falling to Pittsburgh 19-13. Kansas City saw a 3-2 first quarter lead get away from them and trailed 12-3 at the intermission before rallying to pull to within 6 with 2:17 left to play. Kansas City had one last rally to take the lead and got as close as Pittsburgh’s 48 yard line before Alex Smith’s pass attempt to WR De’Anthony Thomas fell short of its mark (the two had connected on a 57-yard TD pass earlier in the period). Smith threw for 246 yards and was sacked three times, while Ben Roethlisberger threw for 252 with a TD. Pittsburgh held the Chiefs to 28 yards rushing, holding rookie RB Kareem Hunt to 21, while they rushed for 194 yards, with LeVeon Bell leading all rushers with 179 yards and a TD. Pittsburgh went 4 of 11 on third down conversions and kept the ball for 36:39, while the Chiefs went 3 of 11 on third down, 0 of 2 on fourth down and held the ball for 23:21.

The Raiders saw victory slip away from their grasp last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, falling to their AFC West and instate rivals 17-16. Oakland led 10-7 at the half, held that lead through a scoreless third quarter and led 16-14 with 7:51 left before the Bolts went to work and sent Raider fans home miserable when Nick Novak (San Diego’s second kicker of the season) connected on a 32-yard field goal as time expired. Los Angeles used an 11-play, 78-yard drive that used 4:09 to seal Oakland’s fate, giving them their second win in a row. Oakland outrushed the Chargers 109-80, while Derek Carr threw for 171 yards, a TD and a pair of interceptions. For the Chargers, Philip Rivers threw for 268 yards and a TD to RB Melvin Gordon (Gordon also had a rushing TD as well). Oakland was 6 of 12 on third down (0 of 1 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 27:57, while the Chargers were 6 of 14 on third down, 1 of 2 on fourth down, keeping the pigskin for 32:03.

Including game that were played when the Chiefs were in Houston and known as the Texans and the Raiders played in Los Angeles, Kansas City leads the series 60-51-2, they have outscored Oakland 2,365-2,171 and the Chiefs have come away victors in their last five contest, including sweeping the series last year (Oakland’s last win over the Chiefs came in 2014, when the Silver and Black took a 24-20 win in Oakland).

The first meeting? Week six in Oakland and the Chiefs used a pair of Chris Santos field goals in the second half to win 26-10. Kansas City led 13-10 at the intermission at the Coliseum before they pulled away in the second half, scoring their final 13 points in the contest unchallenged. KC outrushed Oakland 183-65, with Chiefs RB Spencer Ware leading the way with 131 yards and a TD. Smith threw for 224 yards in the contest, while Carr threw for 225 yards with a TD in the loss (Carr was sacked once and picked off once). Kansas City was 7 of 13 on third down tries on the West Coast, keeping the ball for 36:45, while the Raiders were 23:15 in time of possession, going 4 of 10 on third down, 0 of 2 on fourth down.

Kansas City made it a sweep of the series against their AFC West foes, taking a 21-13 win in week 14 at Arrowhead. The Chiefs trailed 3-0 after the first 15 minutes of action before outscoring the Raiders 21-7 to lead by that score at the half. Oakland did manage to outrush Kansas City 135-64, with Raiders RB LeShaun Murray leading the way with 103 yards and a TD. Smith threw for 264 yards and a TD, while Carr led Oakland with 117 yards. The Raiders were 5 of 18 on third down (1 of 3 on fourth down) and ruled the clock, as they held the ball for 31:45, while the Chiefs were 5 of 11 on third down (0 of 1 on fourth down) and held the ball for 28:15.

Oakland was a 1-point favorite in the week six contest and the Chiefs would go on to win by 16, covering that spread. The two teams barely missed the 46 1/2, as Oakland and Kansas City combined for 46 points. When the Chiefs completed the sweep in week 14 in Arrowhead, they were favored by 3 and covered the spread, winning by 8. The 46 over/under was safe as both clubs only tallied 34 points.

The odds makers like the Chiefs as a 3-point favorite on the road and the over/under is 47. Both numbers make a lot of sense. Kansas City’s trying to right itself from the loss at home last week, the Raiders are trying not to lose three games in a row. Kansas City bounces back from their loss to Pittsburgh and wins in Oakland’s back yard, covering the 3.
