Chiefs open as heavy road favorites against Oakland Raiders - Arrowhead Pride
The Chiefs are on the road against Oakland but are still favored heavily.
Penn has been rehabbing and his eligibility comes up next week with four games left in the season. Jon Gruden says Penn’s rehab has been going well.
The 33-year-old missed last week with a knee injury and was limited all week in practice. By Friday, Jon Gruden suggested there was a good chance Nelson would play, but said he didn’t know how much. Based on what we saw from in Sunday, he probably shouldn’t have played at all, let alone 90% of the snaps.
Looking at the team stats tells you everything you need to know about how this game shook out, the Ravens had 242 rushing yards to the Raiders 67. The Raiders actually had 182 passing yards to the Ravens 174, but lost the overall yards 416 to 249. That shows just how much Baltimore imposed their will on Oakland in the 2nd half.
It followed a familiar pattern. Repeatedly this season, the Raiders’ offense has mounted strong opening drives only for that rhythm to seemingly fade on ensuing possessions.
Waller was a 6th round pick out of Georgia Tech in 2015 by the Ravens. The 6-6, 255-pounder was a receiver in college and was switched to tight end in his second season in Baltimore and had 10 catches for 85 yards that season.
In fact, Keenum was a bit of an unsung hero from Sunday’s win - which is the perfect way to rely on him. No. 4 threw for only 197 yards but had two touchdown strikes and suffered just two sacks. BUT ZERO INTERCEPTIONS and several deep balls for big gains.
Gordon, who left the game early in the third quarter after taking a leg-whip to his right knee from Cardinals defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, “should be back before the end of the regular season if all goes well,” Rapoport says.
While the entire NFL is talking about Patrick Mahomes vs. Drew Brees as Most Valuable Player, there’s a player in Los Angeles who is playing his way into MVP talks as a dark horse. No, it isn’t Todd Gurley. It’s Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who got a lot of attention during an absolutely masterful performance against the Cardinals on Sunday.
The Chiefs begin practicing in preparation for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday. Judging from the sound of Reid, it appears that whether Berry returns to the field is still very much up in the air.

Gary, the No. 4 prospect on Daniel Jeremiah’s and Bucky Brooks’ 2019 prospect rankings list, was a force for the nation’s top-ranked defense, racking up 38 tackles and 3.5 sacks in just nine games. The Wolverines stymied opponents on a weekly basis following an early-season loss at Notre Dame, winning by wide margins thanks to their suffocating defense and steadily improving offense.
After two seasons of declining ratings, viewing of NFL games is up in 2018. There are a few reasons for the uptick in TV viewing, including a lot of high-scoring games and marquee matchups in prime time.
The switch comes on the heels of the team’s ugly 24-21 loss to Buffalo, but also on the back end of seven straight losses for a squad many expected to compete for the AFC crown.
