Raiders will be short-handed in big game vs. Chiefs in two weeks

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs December 10 game against the Oakland Raiders in two weeks is looking like a big one. The Raiders are now tied with the Chargers at 5-6 and one game back in the AFC West. The Chiefs are 6-5 and hold a one-game lead.

That Chiefs-Raiders game (along with the final Chiefs-Chargers game) looks like a big one. Both will take place at Arrowhead Stadium and the Raiders will be without one and possibly two of their top playmakers.

WR Michael Crabtree was suspended two games for his role in the fight with Broncos CB Aqib Talib, who snatched his chain (again!). That means he will miss the Chiefs game.

The Chiefs could also be facing a Raiders team without Amari Cooper, who left last Sunday’s Broncos game with a concussion and an ankle sprain. If Cooper can’t recover in time, the Chiefs will be facing the Raiders without their top two receiving weapons.

Speaking of those weapons, can you guess which game Amari Cooper played against the Chiefs on his stat sheet? No Cooper would be a good thing for the Chiefs.
