Raiders-Chiefs Could Be One Of The Best Thursday Night Games In History

The Kansas City Chiefs host will host the Oakland Raiders on December 8th. The outcome help determine who wins the AFC West, and influence the whole conference’s playoff picture. The NFL game will also be one of the best Thursday night games in NFL history. FiveThirtyEight used their Elo ratings, which estimate a team’s quality at any given moment, to determine that the K.C.-Oakland game is the seventh-best Thursday night matchup in NFL history.

And the Raider lost to Kansas City, so they were well frustrated by the results. The game didn’t go as planned, and now the Chiefs are ahead in the AFC West with three more games.

Nobody thought that the Raiders are going to win game two time zones away, when it is icy cold and on a really short week. Well, the team thought so, for sure.

So they eventually left Kansas City convinced they could and should have won.

Donald Penn wasn’t happy with it, so he explained how the whole team felt.

He said, “My mindset is that I’m pissed right now. I’m pissed. We had control and we gave it to somebody else.”

 

Well, that was honest, appreciate that, however, what were the odds in their favor?
