Raiders vs Chiefs open thread

The Chiefs are in Oakland today, the coliseum is sold out and it's on. By any measurement, the Chiefs should run the Raiders off the field today. These two teams aren't separated much when comparing offenses. It's the defenses that are on very different levels. The Chiefs' defense is one of the best in the league and the Raiders defense is one of the worst.

Let's start with the inactives for both teams:

Raiders: WR Brice Butler, RB Darren McFadden, RB Jeremy Stewart, CB Chance Casey, OG Lamar Mady, C/G Andre Gurode, DT Vance Walker

Chiefs: QB Tyler Bray, WR Dexter McCluster, LB Justin Houston, C Eric Kush, OG Rishaw Johnson, OT Branden Albert, TE Anthony Fasano

For the Raiders, Denarius Moore is active which means the Raiders have a full stable of receivers. Mike Brisiel is also active which means the Raiders' offensive line is as healthy as it's been all season.

The Chiefs are without four key starters in McCluster, Houston, Albert, and Fasano.

The Raiderettes are in their Christmas outfits, Rod Martin has lit the torch, the National Anthem has been sung and it's time to get this party started.
