The Kansas City Chiefs play the Oakland Raiders this weekend and the most recent tape Oakland has of the Chiefs is probably their best of the season -- the victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Everyone is talking about the blueprint the Chiefs provided in beating the Packers. So Raiders coach Hue Jackson was asked how KC was able to come up with that improbable victory.
"I think as I said before," Jackson said, "I think Romeo does a good job. He's going to take away some of your strengths. They had a great plan and their team went in and executed in the passing game. They did a really good job making sure that Aaron didn't have a career day. They re-routed the receivers, got after those guys and played really well, really consistently for four quarters."
As for what the Raiders have to do, Jackson emphasized several times winning the turnover battle.
"We can't turn it over," Jackson said. "We have to get turnovers. We have to do a great job on special teams and then we have to finish consistently every play. Whether it's a play that's two yards or 20 yards, we have to play consistently for four quarters and finish the game."
Turnovers are obviously going to be a key to this game, as they are every week, and especially after the six-interception day the Chiefs had in Oakland a couple months ago.
I'm not even asking for six picks...three would be fine by me.
