Chiefs come into Oakland this Sunday with the intentions of getting to .500 and back on the right track.They have only beaten the Viks and the Colts with a combined record of 1 -11. Theyve had a hard time with consistancy. The Raiders swept the Chiefs in last years divisional play and by the numbers are poised to do it again.But last year was last year and this is the AFC West. Matt Casell & whoever the Raiders QB will be will have to truly manage this game in order to win.
My prediction is Palmer starts. I doubt Hue will get too tricky with him at the helm, but a rusty Carson Palmer is better than Kyle Boller period. If Palmer gets into any kind of rhythm with his speedy young recievers Things could get ugly. Palmer is a field general, which the Raiders have been needing for the longest time. If the Chiefs focus on Palmer DMC will eat them alive. McFadden is a force to be dealt with and a constant issue for Defensive Coordinators across the league.
If the Raiders come out poised they could really run away with this game. Theres one thing that I am sure about Hue Jackson is looking to make a statement. From reports it looks like the team is 100% behind Hue and understand that if you dont have your stuff tight you wont be there. The bus has left and if youre not on it, well you wont get on it.The other thing I am sure about is the Chiefs will not come in and just lay down for us. Right calls at the right time with the right players is key. My Prediction Raiders 31 Chiefs 21
