The Game

Four weeks after facing them on the road during Week 10, the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Las Vegas Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon Arrowhead Time. The game will be broadcast on CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

When these two teams last met, the Chiefs occupied third place in the AFC West with a 5-4 record. But after their 41-14 victory in Las Vegas — combined with Week 10 losses by the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers — Kansas City ended the day holding the division lead. Following wins against the Broncos and Dallas Cowboys, the Chiefs — now 8-4 — stand a full game ahead of the Chargers and two games ahead of the Raiders.

Meanwhile, the Raiders suffered home losses to the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Football Team — separated by an overtime road victory over the Cowboys — to arrive in Kansas City with a 6-6 record.

Both teams need a victory on Sunday. While the Chiefs already stand an excellent chance to make the playoffs — and a good chance to win their sixth consecutive AFC West championship — even a single loss during the season’s last five games will drastically reduce their opportunity to enter the postseason holding the AFC’s first seed.

As it is, the Raiders stand somewhere around a one-in-10 chance to even make the playoffs as a Wild Card team — much less win the division. Evening their season record against Kansas City — along with a couple of favorable results in other Week 14 games — could increase that chance to about one in three. But while a loss to the Chiefs wouldn’t end their opportunity to make the playoffs, it would make it about half as likely as it is now.

The result of this game could well turn on the success of the Las Vegas passing game. With star tight end Darren Waller already declared out, the Raiders will have to depend on other receivers to move the ball downfield — but Kansas City is entering the matchup with cornerbacks Rashad Fenton and L’Jarius Sneed listed as questionable to play; reserve cornerbacks Mike Highes and Deandre Baker could end up playing very important roles.
