What the Kansas City Chiefs losing means for the Oakland Raiders
The AFC West had a terrible week. Every team in the division playing a game lost, so even five weeks into the season there is still no clear frontrunner. If it weren’t for the NFC South, the AFC West would again be considered the weakest division in the NFL.
Nobody expected the Kansas City Chiefs to contend for the division title, but they expected more than a 1-4 start out of them. With everybody back and healthy, there was talk the Chiefs could contend for a wild card spot, but after Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens it seems unlikely. So what does all that mean for the Oakland Raiders?
It means Oakland is not sitting in the basement of the division anymore and it gives Oakland hope it can go to Arrowhead in three weeks and win a road game within the division. The Chiefs lost quarterback Matt Cassel to a head injury and that means Brady Quinn is the starting quarterback for the time being.
The loss also showed how dominant the Chiefs’ defense can be, holding a very potent Baltimore offense to only three field goals. However, Kansas City only scored six points as the offense continues its early season struggles. The only good news on offense was Jamaal Charles and his 140 yards on 30 carries. The passing is still woeful, so Oakland has a chance to win a game if they can find a way to shut down Charles and the rest of the rushing attack.
