The AFC-leading Oakland Raiders (10-2) visit Arrowhead as they take on the Wild Card-bound Kansas City Chiefs in Thursday Night Football. It’s the final matchup of the regular season for these two teams, and it comes with the added pressure of being possibly the biggest game of the season.
During their first meeting in Oakland for Week 6, KC cruised to a 26-10 victory behind Spencer Ware’s rushing for a career-high 131 yards. What may be most surprising is that Kansas City held Oakland, the highest scoring team in the NFL, scoreless in the second half. The Raiders are a different team since that day, having not lost a game since, ripping off six straight wins. However, with a win tonight, the Chiefs would be 2-0 against Oakland, and therefore take first place in the division.
The AFC West is the best division in the NFL. The Raiders enter Thursday’s game as the #1 overall seed in the AFC, while the Chiefs currently hold the #5 seed. According to Football Outsiders’ metrics, Oakland is the sixth team in the league, and the Chiefs are eighth. We haven’t even mentioned the defending Super Bowl champions the Denver Broncos, who are lurking at 8-4. Needless to say, tonight’s Oakland vs. Chiefs game is the biggest game of the 2016 NFL season so far and will go a long way in determining the shape of the AFC playoffs.
