The Kansas City Chiefs string of consecutive national TV games begins on Thursday when they visit the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football. The following week the Chiefs will host the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football.
The Chiefs and Raiders kick off at 7:25 p.m. (Arrowhead Time). The game will be featured on NFL Network and KSHB in Kansas City. CBS had the first eight games of the season but not this one. So remember that it's NFL Network or KSHB in Kansas City. It will be replayed on NFL Network on Friday at 2:30 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).
The Chiefs are a touchdown favorite in this game as they come off their fifth straight win, a 24-20 slugfest over the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. The Raiders, meanwhile, are winless at 0-10. They have already fired their head coach Dennis Allen and moved onto interim coach Tony Sparano.
For the Chiefs, it's important not to overlook the Raiders on a short week. The Chiefs play the Broncos the following weekin what's shaping up to be a huge game in Kansas City. The Chiefs have done a great job not overlooking opponents in the Andy Reid era. The Chiefs Week 1 loss to the Titans is really the only bad loss they've had.
