Watch Thursday Night Football Live Streaming Oakland Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs Live Online Week 14 match will be kick off at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri, United States, Thursday 08 December 2016 online, Time 08:25 ET and its broadcast CBS, ESPN, NFL Network Online.
The Oakland Raiders (10-2) have won 10 games for the first time since 2002, and they arrive to Arrowhead Stadium to play the Kansas City Chiefs (9-3) Thursday night with both first place in the AFC West and first-round bye position on the line.
The Thursday Night Football showcase hasn’t seen anything like this in its 11-year history—and the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
“The rivalry is back,” said linebacker Derrick Johnson, who confirmed this will be the most important regular-season game he’s played in his 12-year career with the Chiefs. “Every season is different, but just looking at this game, not looking back, this is the biggest game thus far.”
The last time the Raiders lost was Week 6 against the Chiefs, and they have won six straight games since, beating the likes of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos along the way.
Their 2016 resurgence has much to do with a sudden MVP candidate in Derek Carr, who comes into the game having thrown 24 touchdowns to only five interceptions.
Led by Carr, the Raiders enter Arrowhead with the No. 5 offense in the league based upon yards per game (391.7).
I think he’s real, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said of Carr. “He’s putting years together here now. So that’s important, in particular at that position.”
Carr played for Reid and his staff in the first Pro Bowl appearance of his career last season.
He loves the game, and he’s passionate about learning,” Reid added. “He loves talking football. So, we were kind of in a low key setting, like a real low key setting over there, but he was interested in whatever you could share with him being a Raider.”
Carr’s two favorite targets are Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, who have combined for 1,766 of his 3,375 yards on the season. Cooper’s 981 yards are good for sixth in the league.
Led by Marcus Peters and Eric Berry, the Chiefs will look to contain Crabtree and Cooper on Thursday night.
Berry nearly single-handedly won the game for the Chiefs last week with a 37-yard pick-six and the first “pick-two” in NFL history. His eight points made the difference in the Chiefs’ 29-28 victory and he was rewarded with his second AFC Defensive Player of the Week award of the season. Wherever you are Thursday night, make sure it’s somewhere you can tune in. It’s sure to be a big one.
