Raiders Look For Redemption On Thursday Night Football

By Matt Furtado/KHTK Sports 1140

The Oakland Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs tomorrow on Thursday Night Football for the first of two meetings between the division rivals this season.

The last time the Chiefs came to Oakland on Dec. 15, 2013, it ended in a 56-31 loss for the Silver and Black.

Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles scored not one, not two, not three, not four, but five touchdowns!

The Raiders defense looked non-existent allowing four touchdowns on screen plays.

If there's one thing the Raiders can take away from last season's game is that the Chiefs offensive strategy will be exactly the same.

The Chiefs feature a lot of run plays and screen passes to the two-headed monster in the back field of Charles and Knile Davis.

If the Raiders don't come out ready for run plays and screen passes, they are poised for the eleventh loss of the season.

The Chiefs are hot and have won the last five games, but if there was ever a game that the Raiders could pull off an upset and get some redemption from last year's loss, it would be this one.

It has already been shown that teams have trouble preparing for Thursday Night games because of the limited preparation during the short week. Out of the 10 previous Thursday Night games this season, seven have ended as a blow out.

At this point of the season, the Raiders are looking to spoil other teams' seasons, and with the Chiefs currently tied for first in the AFC West with the Denver Broncos, nothing would make Oakland happier than knocking Kansas City out of first place.

The key for the Raiders to win will be to stop the Chiefs running game, but that's easier said than done.

The Kansas City Chiefs will run all over Oakland tomorrow and beat the Raiders 32-10 to keep the Silver and Black win-less for the season.

You can listen to the game live on KHTK Sports 1140.
