Smith will lead the Chiefs into a Week 15 matchup with the Raiders this week. He could have more of an active role against Oakland a week after completing 14-of-20 passes for 137 yards with two touchdowns in a 45-10 win over the Redskins.
Smith was called upon to do so little Sunday, because the Chiefs dominated the game wire-to-wire. The Raiders are only a slight improvement from Washington record-wise, but a divisional rivalry should represent a closer contest. Given his performance in Kansas City’s last three games – he has nine touchdowns against just two interceptions – Smith should be a solid QB2 this week.
