Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders: Spread Info, Line and Predictions

It's uncertain whether or not Carson Palmer is going to play this week for the Oakland Raiders as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs, but there is no doubting that there is still going to be a ton of excitement surrounding the Raiders.

Oakland always has a good home-field advantage with Raider Nation and the infamous "Black Hole," but there is something different about this season.

There is a ton of buzz about this team, even league-wide, and the moves that they have made at the deadline prove that they are in it to win it.

Carson Palmer is still up in the air, but ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that he is doubtful.

It's a tough transition going from "retired" to an NFL starter in less than a week, so I don't disagree with this decision.

On the other side of the field is the rival Kansas City Chiefs, who are coming in at a disappointing 2-3.

They've picked up the effort in the past few weeks, though, and may be rebounding from their terrible start.

This is going to be a great matchup between two teams desperate for a win.

With the two offenses in the shape they are in, I'm not sure if I would go over on this game.
