Here’s why Kansas City Chiefs have beaten Raiders five straight times | ESPN
The Chiefs don’t score against the Raiders with just their offense. Defense and special teams also get involved. The Chiefs have scored in four of the five games in the kicking game or on defense. They’ve scored on punt returns (De’Anthony Thomas 81 yards in 2014, Tyreek Hill 78 yards last season). They had an interception return for a touchdown in 2015 from Tyvon Branch. They scored a safety in 2015 when a blocked punt went out of the end zone. All of Oakland’s points against the Chiefs have been supplied by the Raiders’ offense, except for a pick-six in 2015. Even in the one game in which the Chiefs’ offense scored all the points, in 2016, the Chiefs got one of their touchdowns from a defensive player.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders

Thursday Night Football offers one of the best matchups of the season as the Oakland Raiders will host AFC West division rival Kansas City Chiefs in primetime to start Week 7.

This game will be Oakland’s last in a three-game home stretch, which they have the lost the previous two home games as part of the four-game losing streak. The Raiders desperately need a division win as they have already lost AFC West rival Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers. If the Raiders lose this game they will find themselves 0-3 within the division and have a 2-5 record.

The Chiefs are looking to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season last week, a 19-13 loss at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kansas City was averaging nearly 33 points a game before only scoring 13 against the Steelers on Sunday.

The Back Story
The Indianapolis Colts have been in a perpetual struggle ever since the team didn’t properly capitalize on Peyton Manning’s career in Indianapolis. There is certainly no doubt that Manning’s legacy, which deserves the statue that now stands in front of Lucas Oil Stadium, should be a very bright spot in the memory of Colts fans in Indianapolis.
For the most part, it is.
I will continue to believe that Manning was and still is the greatest quarterback to ever play football until such time as someone else comes along and makes me feel differently.
So, for all of those who want to crown Brady because he has a bucket full of rings, or Montana, or Unitas or whoever else you can come up with — I’m sorry. This game is one of the greatest games in the world because no one player is able to do it all on his own.
