It has been a crazy two weeks for the Raiders in which they lost their owner Al Davis, won their next game against Houston on a game winning interception in which they had only 10 players on the field, then they lose Jason Campbell for the year, and trade for Carson Plamer.
But with all that, the Raiders should be able to beat up on the Chiefs today. The Chiefs have looked better of late but the Raiders should have their way.
On offense, look for Darren McFadden to get more carries as Carsonl Palmer won’t be ready to play and Kyle “I should of been a” Bo(w)ller gets the start at QB. The Raiders will try to pound the rock as they do every week as they won’t put the game in Boller’s hands.
On defense, the Raiders must stop a Chiefs offense that has gotten it together of late. Steve Breaston is forming chemistry with QB Matt Cassell and RB Jackie Battle will get the start as the number one RB.
Key Matchup: Darren McFadden vs. Chiefs D – The Raiders will lean on McFadden heavily and if the Chiefs can stop McFadden and Michael Bush then an upset can be in the air.
Key Player: Kyle Boller: Boller can not lose this game for the Raiders. He must manage the ball well and keep the turnovers down.
Outcome: The Raiders win a tight, physical game 24-21 on a Sebastian Janikowski game winning field goal.
