Kansas City (5-1) at Oakland (2-4), 8:25 p.m. on NBC and NFL Network. Capulets vs. Montagues.

Dogs vs. cats.

Hatfields vs. McCoys.

Crips vs. Bloods.

North vs. South.

Batman vs. The Joker.

Superman vs. Lex Luthor.

They’re rivals.

They don’t like each other.

They’re in the same division.

Don’t expect any exchange of Christmas cards between them.

They meet in the week seven opener on the West Coast as Kansas City and Oakland meet in AFC West action. Both teams are coming off tough losses at home, with the Raiders trying to catch up to the first-place Chiefs.

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.

Philadelphia (4-1) at Carolina (4-1), 8:25 p.m. on NFL Network. Carolina and Philadelphia open action in week 6 as the Eagles make their way down the East Coast for a Thursday night meeting with the Panthers. Both teams enter the Thursday contest with wins under their respective belts.

The Eagles manhandled Carson Palmer (291 yards, TD) and the Arizona Cardinals 34-7 at Lincoln Financial Field last Sunday afternoon. Philly led 21-7 at the break before scoring their final 13 points of the contest in the second half unchallenged. Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw for 304 yards and four TDs in the win in the City of Brotherly Love, while the Eagles outrushed the Desert Angry Birds 122-31. Philadelphia went 9 of 14 on third down tries and kept the ball for 35:47, while Arizona was 4 of 14 and 2 of 3 of 3 on third and fourth downs, holding the ball for 24:13.

while the Eagles were blowing out Arizona, the Panthers and Cam Newton needed to hold off the Detroit Lions last Sunday in the Motor City by a final of 27-24 at Ford Field. Carolina led 17-10 at the break and 27-10 after three quarters before the Lions roared back to make the contest a 7-point affair when Matthew Stafford and TE Darren Fells connected on their second TD pass of the quarter.

Neither club breached or came anywhere near the 100-yard rushing barrier but Detroit did outrush Carolina 50-28, while Stafford threw for 229 yards and was sacked six times (Newton threw for 355 yards and three TDs, while being sacked three times). Carolina went 7 of 16 on third down tries in the win, keeping the ball for 35:23, while the Lions were 5 of 13 on third down, 0 of 1 on fourth down and kept the ball for 24:37.

Philadelphia leads the series 6-3 and the Eagles have outscored Carolina 230-178. Carolina did come away with a win in the last meeting, taking a 27-16 win over the Eagles in Charlotte in 2015, while Philly’s last win in the series came in 2014 in the City of Brotherly Love by a final of 45-21.

Carolina’s favored by 3 1/2 in the Tar Heel State and the over/under is 45. Right now, both teams are leading their respective divisions, which could mean a possible playoff rematch. Carolina struggled against Detroit, while the Eagles took care of business last Sunday in Philly. Eagles keep the status quo going. Philly covers the 3 1/2 on the road and takes the win.

New England (2-2) at Tampa Bay (2-1), 8:25 p.m. on CBS and NFL Network. Week 5 kicks off on Thursday night at 8:25 p.m. Eastern on CBS/NFL Network/Amazon Prime with an interconference showdown in the Sunshine State as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New England Patriots at Raymond James Stadium.

The defending Super Bowl champs lost their second game at home last Sunday, falling to Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers 33-30 at Gillette Stadium. New England led 17-16 at the half before Carolina roared back in the final 30 minutes of action. Carolina would eventually take a 23-16 lead with 2:47 left in the third when Newton tossed a 16-yard TD pass to WR Devin Funchess. Newton, who threw for 316 yards and three TDs, would later score from seven yards out with 12:58 left in regulation.

New England would eventually pull even when Brady (307 yards, two TDs) and WR Danny Amendola connected on a 1-yard TD strike with 3:09 left. Carolina then went on to use that remaining 3:09, taking a 10-play, 46-yard drive that would send Pats fans home sad when Graham Gano, who missed an extra point earlier in the contest, booted a 48-yard field goal as time expired.
Carolina outrushed New England 140-80 and the Panthers were 6 of 9 on third down tries and held the ball for 28:53 (which included the final drive of the game), while the defending Super Bowl champs were 7 of 14 on third down (2 of 2 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 31:07.

Tampa Bay held off the winless New York Giants 25-23 at Raymond James Stadium last Sunday afternoon. The Buccaneers led 13-10 at the intermission before Eli Manning and the Giants took the lead with 3:16 left in regulation when he and TE Rhett Ellison connected on a 2-yard TD strike. The Giants missed the extra point and led 23-22 at that point. Tampa Bay then proceeded to make their way down the field, using all of the 3:16 on the clock, ending an 9-play, 59-yard drive that ended with K Nick Folk sending a 34-yard field goal try through the uprights for the win. Tampa Bay outrushed the Giants 111-91 and Winston threw for 332 yards and three TDs without an interception, while Manning threw for 288 yards and a pair of TDs in the Sunshine State. The Giants were 8 of 17 on third down tries and kept the ball for 34:13, while the Bucs were 3 of 11 on third down, keeping the ball for 25:47 (both teams were 0 for 1 on fourth down conversions).

The Patriots lead the series 6-2 and have outscored Tampa Bay 182-93. New England has won the last three meetings, including a 23-3 win in Foxboro in 2013, while Tampa Bay’s last win over Brady and the Pats came in 2000 by a final of 21-16 in Foxboro.

New England’s favored by 5 1/2 in the week five opener and the over/under’s 55 1/2. It’s Brady vs. Winston. One has a Heisman, the other has five Super Bowl rings. You might want to tape “Grey’s Anatomy” this week. New England covers the 5 1/2 in the Sunshine State and takes the win.

Los Angeles Rams (1-1) at San Francisco (0-2), 8:25 p.m. on NFL Network. A pair of struggling NFC West teams meet in Wine Country to open play in week three as the 49ers host the Los Angeles Rams in Santa Clara at Levis’ Stadium. It’s also the first meeting between two rookie head coaches as Kyle Shanahan (San Francisco) and Sean McVay (Los Angeles Rams) square off in northern California.

Both clubs lost last week and hope to make ground in the NFC West. The Rams trailed Washington 20-10 at the half at the Coliseum last Sunday and fell to the Redskins 27-20. Los Angeles’ Greg Zuerlein managed to pull his club even at 20-20 with 7:16 left in regulation before the Redskins took the lead back for keeps when Kirk Cousins (179 yards, TD, 18 of 27) and WR Ryan Grant connected on an 11 yard TD pass with 1:49 left in the contest. Washington outrushed the Rams 229-92, while Jarred Goff threw for 224 yards and a TD for Los Angeles. The Rams on third down tries were 5 of 12 (they did have success in their only fourth down conversion) and held the ball for 23:41, while Washington was 5 of 13 and held the ball for 36:19.

San Francisco fell to Seattle again, this time losing to the defending NFC West champs 12-9 at CenturyLink Field. The 49ers led 9-6 with 7:06 left to play before Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and WR Paul Richardson connected on the game’s only TD to take the win. San Francisco did outrush Seattle 159-131, with the 49ers Carlos Hyde led all rushers with 124. Although San Francisco sacked Wilson three times, he did manage to throw for 198 yards and the game-winning TD. San Francisco went 2 of 12 on third down conversions in the land of grunge, Salmon and Starbucks and kept the ball for 23:02, while Seattle ruled the clock, holding on to the ball for 36:58, while going 8 of 19 and 1 of 1 on third and fourth downs.

Including games played in St. Louis, the 49ers lead the series with the Rams 67-64-3, they’ve outscored Los Angeles 2,973-2,837 and San Francisco has won the last three meetings, including sweeping the series last year (Los Angeles’ last win over their instate rivals came in 2015, when they took a 27-6 win when they were in St. Louis).

First meeting? Week one in Santa Clara at Levis’ Stadium. The 49ers used a pair of Carlos Hyde TDs to shutout the Rams 28-0. San Francisco managed to score at least one TD per quarter, leading 14-0 at the half. San Francisco easily outrushed Los Angeles 150-65, Blaine Gabbert threw for 170 yards and a TD and the 49er defense sacked Case Keenum (130 yards) twice and picked him off twice. The 49ers were 8 of 17 on third down and held on to the ball for 32:10, while the Rams were 3 of 15 on third down conversions, keeping the pigskin for 27:50 (both teams were 1 of 2 on fourth down).

Meeting number two took place in Los Angeles in week 16 on Christmas Eve afternoon. The second meeting was closer than the first but the result was the same, as the 49ers escaped with a 22-21 win in the Coliseum. Los Angeles led 14-7 through the first 45 minutes of play in a game that meant nothing, since both teams were out of the playoff race, before Colin Kaepernick ran in a score from 13 yards out and then threw a 10-yard TD pass to Ross Streater with 31 seconds to take the lead for keeps. San Francisco then held off a late Los Angeles drive that would have given the home team the win. Neither team breached the 100-yard barrier but the Rams came the closest, tallying 99 yards to San Francisco’s 70 and although he was sacked four times, Kaepernick threw for 266 yards and the two TDs. Third down tries in the second meeting were nothing to make the fan base of either team jolly and bright. San Francisco? 6 of 16. The Rams? 4 of 13. Both teams did have one fourth down try and found success and the 49ers ruled the clock, keeping the ball for 31:03 to Los Angeles’ 28:57.

San Francisco in the first meeting on a Monday night to open the 2016 campaign easily covered the 2 1/2-point spread with the 28-point win but both teams failed to cover the 43 over/under. In the second meeting on Christmas Eve in Tinseltown, the Rams were favored by 4 and San Francisco won by 1 but both teams covered the 40 over/under with 43 points in the contest.

The odds makers like Los Angeles as a 2 1/2 favorite on the road and the over/under’s 40. Both numbers make sense. These two teams aren’t bad teams, they’re not quite playoff contenders right now. San Francisco covers the 2 1/2 and pulls the upset at home.

Houston (0-1) at Cincinnati (0-1), 8:25 p.m. on NFL Network. A pair of teams looking for their first win of the 2017 season meets along the shores of the Ohio River to open play in week two as the Cincinnati Bengals host the Houston Texans at Paul Brown Stadium. Both teams enter the week two contest with home losses under their belts.

The defending AFC South champs could only muster a third-quarter TD pass from rookie QB Deshaun Watson to WR DeAndre Hopkins in their 29-7 loss at home to Jacksonville last Sunday. The Texans trailed 19-0 at the intermission at NRG Stadium before they would get on the board for their only tally of the contest. Watson (12 of 23, 102 yards, TD, interception, four sacks) took over for Tom Savage (7 of 13, 62 yards, six sacks) in the AFC South contest in the Lone Star State. Houston was held to 93 yards on the ground, while Jacksonville rookie RB Leonard Fournette made his presence known, rushing for 100 of his team’s 155 yards and Blake Bortles threw for 125 yards and a TD with no picks.

Jacksonville, taking advantage of four Houston turnovers (3 fumbles, interception), went 3 of 12 and 1 of 1 on third and fourth tries and held on to the football for 30:05, while the Texans on third and fourth down were 5 of 12 and 0 of 1, keeping the pigskin for 29:55.

Cincinnati gave up 20 points in the first three quarters of play at Paul Brown Stadium to the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday and were shutout 20-0. The Bengals were outrushed by Baltimore 157-77 and Andy Dalton was sacked five times and picked off four times, throwing for 170 yards. Cincy did themselves in with five turnovers in the contest and went 4 of 13, 0 of 1 on third and fourth down, keeping the ball for a mere 26 minutes, while the Ravens, led by Joe Flacco’s 121 passing yards, went 6 of 14 on third down, holding the ball for 34 minutes.

Hpuston leads the series 5-4 but the Bengals have outscored the Texans 168-158. Houston has won the last five regular season contests, including taking a 12-10 win last year in the Lone Star State, while the Bengals’ last win came in 2005 in Cincy by a final of 12-10. They met in Houston in week 16 and the Texans trailed 3-0 at the break and took the lead for keeps when RB Alfred Blue scored from 24 yards out with 8:41 left in the contest. Houston outrushed Cincinnati 95-50 (Blue led all rushers with 73 of those yards) and Savage threw for 176 yards with four sacks, while Dalton threw for 268 yards with a TD and an interception and was sacked three times. Cincinnati was 7 of 16 on third down, 1 of 1 on fourth down in the week 16 contest and kept the ball for 28:54, while the Texans kept the pigskin for 31:06, going 4 of 14 on third down.

Houston covered the 2-point spread with their 2-point win but neither team covered the 41 over/under, tallying only 22 points. This time, the Bengals are favored by 5 and the over/under’s 38. It’s still early and one loss doesn’t make a season. In the end, someone’s going to come out of this with the win Thursday night. Cincy covers the 5 at home and evens their mark

– “When you’re looking at the situation, there’s the quarterback of the year, they have one of the greatest wide receivers in the league – they’re going to throw the ball…Sometimes in those moments in the game, I’m totally wrong, 100 percent. Somehow it all worked out.” – Matt Patricia

– “That’s definitely got to be the greatest catch in Super Bowl history. It was just things equalizing.” – Robert Kraft on Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman’s catch

– “When we won the coin toss, I looked over at my Dad and said, ‘Game over.'” – Jonathan Kraft on winning the coin toss in overtime

– “I don’t really think it’s about what I’ve done. I think it’s in this case about what this team did. Collectively, this team accomplished a lot. This team was a special team. The 2016 team was a special team.” – Bill Belichick

You look in his eyes and you can just tell he’s not worried about messing anything up for us.” – LeGarrette Blount describing Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s state of mind late in Super Bowl LI

– “Like I was 90 percent sure…So I’m sitting there like, ‘Gotta sell ’em it was a catch.’ Let’s go. I caught it! I caught it!” – Julian Edelman on his fourth quarter catch in Super Bowl LI

– “I honestly didn’t believe it, even after we did the Lombardi and the confetti. I still didn’t believe it. That’s stuff you see in a movie… Don’t give up. Keep fighting.
