ALAMEDA – The Raiders game against the Kansas City Chiefs sold out in advance of the league deadline Thursday. Therefore, it will be televised locally.
The Raiders host the Chiefs at the Coliseum on Sunday at 1:05 p.m., with their playoff aspirations on the brink of being extinguished.
They need to beat the Chiefs, the San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos in their final three games just to have a shot at making the playoffs.
Even then, the Raiders need a slew of things to go their way for them to make the playoffs for the first time since they played in the Super Bowl at the end of the 2002 season.
The Raiders now have sold out all seven of their regular-season games this season and 22 of their past 23, dating to the start of the 2011 season.
The Chiefs are 10-3 in the AFC West, one game behind the Broncos and within striking distance of clinching a playoff berth on the heels of a 2-14 finish last season.
The Raiders are 4-9 and in the midst of a three-game losing streak. The Chiefs defeated the Raiders 24-7 in the teams’ first meeting Oct. 13, at Arrowhead Stadium.

    We are inexorably linked to our past.

    Deal with it. Go Reggie .Go Raiders.
    No instant football. Just hard work.

    Amazing. 4-9 fresh off an embarrassing loss to the Jets with the season over and they still sell out.
    Raider Nation deserves way better than what we’ve gotten.

    Steady progress from the last start is all I want to see.

  • 8raiderreign8

    It’s coming. No more MeAngelo type contracts.

    I think we can beat the Kansas City Chiefs

  • willy91137

    all or once they wanted me to reregister my e-mail what is this that should realize old people don’t understand that stuff I’ve been on here for two days playing with this damn thing finally now it works and what I done I do not know

    Greg Papa fired up right now talking on the radio.. about the harbaugh story.. said its pissing him off about harbaugs agent playing the team.

    he said Notre Dame flew in Alameda and met with Jon Gruden when he was 8-2 with the Raiders and Al didnt even know it.. they wanted Gruden to quit on the team during the year.

    Chico,

    What about Bridgwater? 5th

  • Raider O

    Hundley has potential, but I wasn’t impressed with him.

    Gruden’s “maybe one day we will share a coke and discuss it” was a bunch of hooey then?

    Welcome to the deconstruction zone.

  • Raider O

    My only concern with Watkins is size. I don’t want J Maclin 2.0.

    I’d call it “Ship of Fools” but some on here might take it personal.

    I don’t like Teddy that much. Seems frail to me, going to be Bob Griffin all over again where he gets hit and it seems like a car crash everytime.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    So what is so different about KC this year to last.

    It seems the roster is similar except for Smith (who I do not think is even as good as McGloin). In this case the coaching is mixing with adequate talent and having a good outcome. Got to have both. I think they were 2-14 last year and had 5 probowlers.

    LAST

    One of the Pro Bowlers was a punter

    geez, trying to get him started…again?

  • Jim Jesus

    Utah has a good D end #9 I think he name escapes me right now but many QB’s didn’t. Do not know how his game will transition at this level.

  • Raider O

    Trevor Reilly. His stock is rising. Many project him as a 2nd round pick.

    Don’t think smith is any better than dilfer, but both defenses come to play

  • http://AdvoCare.com/ Till death do us part

    Wish we could have got that big fat tub of sh2t before he left after he tried to hatch Gannon

  • DutchRaid

    QB doesn’t do anything Stupid, throws the ball away? Smart Vet, nothing special?

  • Raiderfusion

    Sure glad Cork put in his article about how the Raiders need to win their remaining 3 games to have a shot at the playoffs. I know I left out the word “just” out of that sentence, but give me a break. Does he want to throw salt in our wounds. Make the playoffs? What a joke!

  • R8erEduc8er

    Chiefs always had roster talent. The 2 biggest pieces that were missing were coach and QB. Andy coaches smart and Smith QBs smart. Also doesn’t hurt to have a healthy J Charles play a full season for once.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Good offense, great defense, great special teams. They don’t have many weaknesses. We’ll still beat them or play them tough on Sunday imo.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    For those few of us that know the meaning of the word. Wait, I think only Rifflicks does.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    What the flvck! Playoffs, here we come!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Not happening.

  • 10centsworth

    llama llama ding dong…

  • 10centsworth

    ok. I give.

  • 10centsworth

    did you really say that? opened a new category of intellect here. Dilfer? I’ll bet he isn’t even invited to the reunions.

  • 10centsworth

    oh, now we’re pleading “insanity”? On here? I’m laughing. Senility is ok, they’ve found, thru studies conducted by Stanford on this blog, it exhibits itself at early ages, in some cases.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    No man King is Royal and Reggie is the bomb.
