Each week we are going to have NFL analysts, media personalities and other podcast hosts give us their Chiefs Predictions. This week it’s time for a primetime matchup on Thursday Night Football with a look from Madden 2018 as well.

 

* Inactives Update *


 

Here is our week seven pregame and predictions.

Matt Williamson – National NFL Analyst – The Steelers are always a tough matchup for Kansas City, but even on a short week, Oakland does not offer nearly as much of a challenge. This is especially true when the Chiefs have the ball. Expect a huge bounce back from Kansas City. Raiders 17, Chiefs 35 

Connor Rogers – Host of the Sticktofootball Podcast – Derek Carr has not looked like the same player he was last year even when healthy as the Chiefs essentially knock the Raiders out of AFC West contention on Thursday night. Raiders 17, Chiefs 28 

Mike Renner – Senior Analyst ProFootballFocus.com – Oakland is a mess on both sides of the ball. Not to mention Derek Carr’s inability to figure out the Chiefs defense. This one could get out of hand. Raiders 13, Chiefs 35

A quick look back at the Chiefs News from last weeks game against the Steelers.

Carrington Harrison – 610 Sports – Oakland’s offense has been one of the most disappointing units in the NFL. I’ll take the better-coached team on short rest too. Raiders 13, Chiefs 17

Cody Tapp – SportsRadio 810 – Run defense a concern again but the Chiefs will get their franchise record for consecutive divisional wins. Give me Reid on the short week for a tight win. Raiders 21, Chiefs 24

Arrowheads Abroad – Chiefs UK and International Supporters Club (Dave) – This Raiders team isn’t ready for the quality that the Chiefs possess. Yes, we are just off a defeat but this offers the perfect bounce back. Look for Kelce to go off after a quiet Sunday. Raiders 13, Chiefs 31

Mark Schofield – Locked on Patriots Senior Analyst – Kansas City rebounds against an offense that is struggling to find its identity. Expect a big game from Alex Smith against a defense that has given up some decent games to QBs this year. Raiders 17, Chiefs 28

A quick review of the Pressure Points for this weeks game.

Ryan Tracy – Locked on Chiefs Senior Analyst – Chiefs face Raiders defense that can be attacked in the air and on the ground. The offense gets right in this game and the Chiefs defense gets to Carr. Raiders 20, Chiefs 31

Chris Clark – Locked on Chiefs Senior Analyst – The Raiders aren’t playing well and I don’t think this one is close. Raiders 17, Chiefs 34

A look from the world of Madden 2018

Madden 2018 – The Chiefs jumped out to a quick lead but the Raiders made it close at the end. Raiders 31, Chiefs 38
