Kansas City is coming off a bye week following a 24-17 road victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs' high-powered offense sputtered a bit in that game, but the defense was able to force four turnovers and hang on. The Chiefs would effectively take a three-game lead in the division with a win, because they would sweep the season series - they won 28-10 at Oakland in Week 2. The Raiders had won three straight to get back in the thick of the division race before an embarrassing performance in a 34-3 loss at the New York Jets last week.

TV: 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS. LINE: Kansas City -10 O/U: 51

ABOUT THE RAIDERS (6-5): Oakland was beginning to look like a legitimate playoff contender until last week's blowout loss to the Jets. The ground game has been solid behind Josh Jacobs, who needs 43 rushing yards to become the first rookie in franchise history to rush for 1,000, and quarterback Derek Carr has had a steady, if unspectacular, season. Oakland's defense has struggled to stop the pass, which could be a problem against a pass-happy Chiefs' offense.

ABOUT THE CHIEFS (7-4): Kansas City's offense was off its game against the Chargers, managing a meager 310 total yards, but facing the Raiders could help them get back on track. They torched Oakland for 467 total yards in Week 2 as Patrick Mahomes threw for 443 yards and a season-high four touchdowns. The Chiefs' secondary had put together a good stretch before giving up 345 yards through the air against the Chargers, and Kansas City has struggled to stop the run.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Chiefs K Harrison Butker leads the league with 104 points.

2. Jacobs leads all rookies in rushing yards (957), rushing touchdowns (seven) and yards from scrimmage (1,103).

3. Raiders DEs Maxx Crosby (7.5) and Clelin Ferrell (3.5) are the only pair of rookie teammates in the NFL with at least three sacks apiece.
