La ofensiva de alto poder de los Chiefs no tendrá una de sus mejores armas, ya que se espera que el receptor estrella Tyreek Hill pierda 4-6 semanas con una lesión en la articulación esternoclavicular (el lugar donde la clavícula se encuentra con el esternón), pero el entrenador de los Raiders, Jon Gruden Todavía desconfía de la ofensa de Kansas City. "(El novato Mecole Hardman) será rápido y dinámico. Sammy Watkins está sano ... (Travis) Kelce sigue siendo Kelce. Han agregado (LeSean) Shady McCoy. Son un problema", dijo Gruden en un comunicado. teleconferencia "Me duele la cabeza hablar de eso". Los Raiders tuvieron sus dolores de cabeza en la víspera de la temporada con la saga previa al lanzamiento de Antonio Brown, pero culminaron un torbellino de la Semana 1 con una victoria en casa 24-16 sobre Denver el lunes por la noche. Los Chiefs ganaron tres encuentros consecutivos, pero escaparon por poco con una victoria de 40-33 en su visita a Oakland la temporada pasada.

TV: 4:05 p.m. ET, CBS. LÍNEA: Kansas City -7. O / U: 53.5

ACERCA DE LOS JEFES (1-0): Incluso sin Hill, la ofensiva de Kansas City tiene muchas proezas con Mahomes lanzando a Watkins (nueve atrapadas, 198 yardas, tres touchdowns en la Semana 1) y Kelce. Damien Williams y la reciente adquisición de McCoy dividieron el tiempo en el backfield, y se espera que este último tome un papel más importante después de promediar 8.1 yardas en 10 acarreos la semana pasada. La secundaria todavía es una preocupación para los Chiefs, quienes se rindieron 347 yardas aéreas en una victoria de 40-26 en Jacksonville y fueron seleccionados por el novato Gardner Minshew en la segunda mitad.

ACERCA DE LOS RAIDERS (1-0): Oakland hizo un excelente trabajo al proteger a Derek Carr contra Denver, ya que el equipo no entregó un saco. Carr encontró un nuevo objetivo favorito en Tyrell Williams, quien consiguió seis pases para 105 yardas y un touchdown, y el novato Josh Jacobs corrió para 85 yardas y dos touchdowns. Los Raiders pudieron causar estragos en el backfield contra los Broncos, recogiendo tres capturas y cinco tacleadas para perder, pero tendrán un desafío mayor esta semana.

PUNTOS EXTRA

1. Los Chiefs han anotado 25 o más puntos en un récord de la NFL 22 juegos consecutivos.

2. Mahomes ha lanzado al menos dos pases de touchdown en 12 concursos consecutivos.

3. Jacobs fue el primer jugador desde LaDainian Tomlinson en 2001 en registrar al menos 100 yardas de scrimmage y dos touchdowns en su debut en la NFL.

The Chiefs' high-powered offense will be without one of its top weapons, as star receiver Tyreek Hill is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a sternoclavicular joint injury (the spot where the clavicle meets the sternum), but Raiders coach Jon Gruden still is wary of Kansas City's offense. "(Rookie Mecole Hardman) is gonna be fast and dynamic. Sammy Watkins is healthy. ... (Travis) Kelce is still Kelce. They've added (LeSean) Shady McCoy. They're a problem," Gruden said in a teleconference. "I'm getting a headache talking about it." The Raiders had their share of headaches on the eve of the season with the saga leading up to Antonio Brown's release, but they capped a whirlwind Week 1 with a 24-16 home win over Denver on Monday night. The Chiefs have won three straight meetings, but they narrowly escaped with a 40-33 victory in their visit to Oakland last season.

TV: 4:05 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Kansas City -7. O/U: 53.5

ABOUT THE CHIEFS (1-0): Even without Hill, Kansas City's offense has plenty of prowess with Mahomes throwing to Watkins (nine catches, 198 yards, three touchdowns in Week 1) and Kelce. Damien Williams and recent acquisition McCoy split time in the backfield, and the latter is expected to take on a bigger role after averaging 8.1 yards on 10 carries last week. The secondary still is a concern for the Chiefs, who surrendered 347 passing yards in a 40-26 win at Jacksonville and were picked apart by rookie Gardner Minshew in the second half.

ABOUT THE RAIDERS (1-0): Oakland did an excellent job of protecting Derek Carr against Denver, as the team did not surrender a sack. Carr found a new favorite target in Tyrell Williams, who snagged six passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, and rookie Josh Jacobs rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns. The Raiders were able to wreak havoc in the backfield against the Broncos, collecting three sacks and five tackles for loss, but they'll have a bigger challenge this week.

EXTRA POINTS

1. The Chiefs have scored 25 or more points in an NFL-record 22 consecutive games.

2. Mahomes has thrown at least two touchdown passes in 12 straight contests.

3. Jacobs was the first player since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001 to record at least 100 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in his NFL debut.
