The Raiders haven't covered in six straight games, while the Chiefs have at least covered in two of three and three of five. The Chiefs were shutdown at Cleveland last week, 30-7, but the Raiders' defense is one of the worst in the league. The Raiders will focus on RB Jamaal Charles by stacking the box and expect Brady Quinn to come out throwing, even without injured WR Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs' OLB duo of Tamba Hali and Justin Houston (10 sacks) will have huge games.
