Kansas City Chiefs v Oakland Raiders

5 Reasons the Oakland Raiders could beat the Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are still alive in the hunt for the playoffs! By now, you know the scenario: The Chiefs must win their last two games, the Denver Broncos must must lose against the Buffalo Bills in week 16, while the San Diego Chargers must lose one of their last tow games.

Sounds simple enough, right?

The Chiefs’ playoff scenario actually began in week 15 against the Green Bay Packers. I think it is safe to say, nobody saw that upset win coming. If you tell me you did… I don;t believe you!

On to the reasons the Raiders will beat the Chiefs…

♦◊♦◊♦◊♦◊♦

Playoffs?

Entering week 16, every AFC West team is alive in the playoff hunt. The Raiders have  a better shot than the Chiefs, but it all starts with this game.

Pressure

Time after time, Chiefs fans have watched this team crumble under pressure. Many Chiefs fans truly believe the Chiefs can make the playoffs. The pressure has never been higher, and the Chiefs have been blown out as often as they have won.

Good luck.

Michael Bush

I get crap all the time when I say Michael Bush may actually be better than Darren McFadden. Yes, I believe it could be true. The problem, they are both injury prone.

Well, Darren McFadden is out today, so the Chiefs will be facing Bush, who has rushed for 86 yards rushing per game and another 37 yards per game receiving for a total of 123 yards per game since McFadden’s injury.

Carson Palmer

It is well-documented how much I think Palmer is a turd, that being said, he is still the best option on the team at QB. This time around Palmer will be starting the game, not entering in the third quarter while trailing badly.

Chiefs Rushing Game

In week 15 against the Packers, the Chiefs seemed to try to re-establish a running game under Romeo Crennel… It needs to happen again, but will it!?

My Raiders @ Chiefs Prediction

I like the Chiefs in this game, regardless of the win over the Packers by the Chiefs in week 15. Carson Palmer is horrible… Ready for another six-pack of picks?!
