The 0-10 Oakland Raiders have six games remaining, and if they want to avoid the wrong kind of historic effort, the Silver & Black need to win at least one of those games.

Opponent Profile: Chiefs Hot At The Wrong Time For The Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs have been playing pretty well lately, as evidenced by their win over the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. Now, they get to the play the first of two games remaining on their schedule against the hapless Oakland Raiders, and if the Silver & Black want to win their first game in more than a year, they’ll need to be at their “best”—whatever that is.
