Week 2: Chiefs vs Raiders(Matchups)

I know it is early (Raiders haven't even played yet) but you better believe Haley is already working on the game plan. Here is my thoughts on the matchups for week two against the Faders. Opening day at Arrowhead. I expect big crowds and a big score.

 

Chaz Schilens, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Johnnie Lee Higgins VS Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr, Maurice Leggett

Schilens is a tall reciever that could cause matchup problems against our smaller backs. Bey is of course fast along with Higgins. I expect help from our safeties to shut down the deep ball.

-Edge: Chiefs

Nnamdi Asomugha, Chris Johnson, Stanford Routt VS Dwayne Bowe, Mark Bradley, Bobby Engram

They have taller CB's than we do. Asomugha is the best player on their sad defense and will most likely put up pro-bowl numbers. Bowe will give him some good competition. I say we have the best chance in the middle of the field against their secondary.

-Edge: Tie

Raiders Offensive Line VS Chiefs Defensive Line

They have pretty big linemen up front but it's pretty bad. Pretty comparable to ours. I expect our defensive to give them different looks and blitz early and often.

-Edge: Chiefs

Chiefs Offensive Line VS Raiders Defensive Line

With the addition of Seymour it adds a lot more quality to a stale line. It will take him a few weeks to get in sync with the rest of the line. I don't think they'll have much of a problem with our line.

-Edge: Raiders

JaMarcus Russell VS Chiefs Secondary

He has been shown to struggle especially with a pass rush. We'll do better with thier weak O-Line. Our secondary is strong especially if weget Flowers back this week. I see a couple INT for our defense.

-Edge: Chiefs

Matt Cassel VS Raiders Secondary

I'm not too worried about their secondary. I expect Cassel to rip them apart IF he is given time. I'm worried about Asomugha. He can makeplays for their Defense. We need to control the middle of the field and have some nice runs to spread them out.

-Edge: Chiefs

Larry Johnson, Jamaal Charles VS Raiders Defense

LJ will have a much better day against a sad defensive line. Look for Charles to break the long screen plays.

-Edge: Chiefs

Darren McFadden, Justin Fargas VS Chiefs Defense

We have shown to stop the run. It seems like we always give up big plays to Fargas though. McFadden is a speedster whom we need to shut down early.

-Edge: Raiders


Chiefs Special Teams vs Raiders Special Teams

They have the return game. We have the more talented players. They have a vet kicker. We have a outstanding rookie.

-Edge: Tie
