The Kansas City Chiefs will play the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon in Week 15 of the NFL 2013 regular season. This all-AFC West match up will the Chiefs look to tie for the lead in the division again following the Denver Broncos surprise loss in the week to the San Diego Chargers. Today's game will start at 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Chiefs are on 10-3 coming into this game, but can tie with the Broncos on 11-3 if they can navigate their way past the Raiders today.
Oakland meanwhile have nothing but pride to play for this season, and they are in the basement of the AFC West with a poor 4-9 record. However, they would love nothing more than to gain a win today against their fierce division rivals and dent their title hopes.
But the Raiders are not coming into this tie in good form, and in recent weeks they have been well beaten by the Tennessee Titans, the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Jets. They will need to turn around their fortunes significantly to trouble the Chiefs today.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs were able to finally snap their losing streak. Following their 9-0 start to the season they had lost three straight games – although two were against the Denver Broncos – but they were able to gain a big 45-10 victory over the Washington Redskins in Week 14.
If they can win out the season from here they still have the chance at snatching the division title, and could even gain a top seeding for the playoffs.
The Chiefs have one of the most efficient offenses in the league; they are ranking just 18th in the NFL for total points gained per game (337.9 yards per game). However, they are ranked a much more impressive 7th in the league for total points scored per game (26.4 points), which means they are converting their yards into points at a very efficient rate.
Alex Smith is 275 of 460 for 2,873 yards and 18 touchdowns, and Jamaal Charles has gone 1,161 yards on 238 carries for an average gain of 4.9 yards and 10 touchdowns.
