This would be an easy decision had Jason Campbell, the Oakland Raiders QB, not been injured last week in the 24-17 win over the Browns.
The Raiders must be happy they get to face a weak team in the Kansas City Chiefs, though.
The Raiders have net points of plus-10, while the Chiefs are a whopping minus-73 in net points. Yes, they've only scored 77 points, and have given up 150. They're pretty lousy on both sides of the line of scrimmage.
The Chiefs two wins in their 2-3 record were against the Colts and the Vikings, two other very sloppy teams. The Chiefs are worse than their 2-3 record suggests, even though they've lost to teams like Buffalo, Detroit and San Diego. That net point total says it all.
The Raiders are 4-2 going into Week 7. They've won against the Broncos, Jets, Texans and Browns. So their wins are against a mix of sloppy teams and decent teams.
However, their two losses have come against the Patriots, and the Bills. And they've held their own against both teams.
Despite losing Campbell, I think the Raiders will be able to manage the Chiefs, but this will be a very low scoring affair.
The Chiefs sloppy defense will be their downfall. They'll let the Raiders get down the field enough for Sebastian Janikowski, one of the league's top kickers, to knock in some field goals.
Prediction- Raiders win 16- 14
