Who: Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders

Where: Coliseum, Oakland California

When: 1:25pm Pacific Standard Time


It's the Raiders' final home game of the season. The game is sold out and the crowd is ready to see these two double digit loss team duel for the cellar in the AFC West. In fact, they are dueling for the top draft pick at the moment. The Chiefs are in the line for the number one overall pick but if the Raiders lose today, they would be firmly in the hunt.

These two teams love to win on the other's home field. The Raiders have won six straight at Arrowhead and the Chiefs have won seven of their last eight games in Oakland.

The Raider come into this game in a lot better shape. They have their franchise quarterback while the Chiefs have benched their starter, Matt Cassell in favor of journeyman backup, Brady Quinn.

Quinn will be without his top wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, who is out the remainder of the season with a leg injury. He is set to be a free agent so we have likely seen Bowe play his last game in a Chiefs uniform.

Both defenses have struggled on all fronts. The Chiefs had Stanford Routt last time these two played in week 8 but have since cut ties with him. The Raiders cut ties with their former number one corner, Ron Bartell in favor of Phillip Adams who gets the first start of his career.

Currently Tyvon Branch and Richard Seymour are both questionable for the Raiders.

For the Chiefs, Safety Abram Elam is doubtful while tackle Brandon Albert and center Ryan Lilja are both questionable.
