The Raiders are 2-4 on the season, but are just one game behind the Broncos and Chargers in the AFC West. Getting back into the playoff picture will start Sunday when the Raiders face a 1-5 Kansas City team. The Chiefs have lost three straight games.
Brady Quinn will start at quarterback for the Chiefs, but Kansas City will likely rely on its dominant running attack led by Jamaal Charles. The Chiefs rank third in the NFL, averaging 164 rushing yards per game. Oakland has proven to have a strong run defense during the first half of the season, ranking 12th in the NFL in rushing yards per game allowed.
The Chiefs are 0-3 at home and have not led a game during regulation this season. Despite being widely considered as one of the toughest stadiums to play in, the Raiders have had recent success at Arrowhead Stadium. Oakland has won five straight games at Kansas City, dating back to the 2007 season.
