It’s on. Raiders vs Chiefs. They don’t get any bigger than this. The winner takes control in the AFC West and either retains (Raiders) or takes over (Chiefs) a top seed in the playoff race.
Both teams are in their Color Rush uniforms. The Raiders look pretty sleek in their silver on black on white with white pants.
You can see the players’ breath in the latest in this long standing AFC West rivalry. The perfect stage for the biggest game between these two teams in over 20 years.
Making things more difficult, the Raiders are without their best lineman, Kelechi Osemele who was a late scratch with an illness. He is replaced at left guard by rookie seventh round pick, Vadal Alexander.
If the Raiders are going to win this crucial game, they will have to do it the hard way.
So, what else is new.
