A look back at Chiefs vs. Raiders series history

Brian Bahr

The Chiefs have played the Raiders more than any other team in the NFL in its history. Here's a closer look at the series and recent results.

This Sunday, Arrowhead Stadium will host the 107th match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and the visiting Oakland Raiders. For the Chiefs, it's another game against a team the franchise has faced more than any other in team history, and this season it's as meaningful as ever.

The Chiefs come into the game at 1-5 in last place in the AFC West. Despite the frustrating season thus far, however, the AFC West is as bad as last year, which means the team is within 2 games of first place. The Raiders have even more incentive to defeat the Chiefs since they are 2-4 and only 1 game out of the lead.

Historically the Chiefs lead the Raiders with an overall series record of 55-49-2 for a .528 winning percentage. Yet as BJ Kissel pointed out recently, the Raiders have won the last five games at Arrowhead between the two teams. In addition, the Raiders have won 6 of the last 10 games between the teams.

However those numbers do not indicate how the 2011 games really went. Chiefs fans will remember well the overtime loss to the Raiders last year which included two blocked field goals by Richard Seymour, the bomb to DHB and, of course, Sebastian Janikowski.

While the Arrowhead game was close, the Chiefs absolutely smoked the Raiders on the road last year by shutting out Oakland 28-0 on the strength of a team record six interceptions. Besides the Packers win, it was the most inspiring point of the season.

There was a point where the Chiefs defeated the Raiders in 9 consecutive games from 2003-07. The team hopes to start such a streak on Sunday when the Raiders come to town.
