Chiefs Vs. Raiders Week 7 Thursday Night Game Open Discussion Thread

Are you ready to watch some Thursday night football?

The Oakland Raiders will host the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night to kick off Week 7 of the NFL regular season and being as it’s sort of a key mid-season AFC matchup, I figured an open discussion would be appropriate for those of you who would like to chat about the game.

Should the Chiefs lose to the Raiders Thursday night and the Pittsburgh Steelers ultimately beat the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Heinz Field, the Black and Gold should enter Week 8 as the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

The Raiders are currently 3-point home underdogs as of the time of this post going live. Raiders new linebacker NaVorro Bowman will also reportedly start tonight against the Chiefs and it will be interesting to see him play.

I’ll try to add some video highlights to this post as the game goes on.
