Watch a Chiefs vs Raiders live stream
Looking for a free Chiefs vs Raiders live stream? Today's game is free-to-air on 7Mate and 7Plus in Australia. In the US, it's being shown on CBS and Paramount Plus (7-day free trial), in Canada it's on DAZN and TSN, and in the UK it's only on NFL Game Pass, but remember that you can watch on your usual service with a VPN when abroad too. Full details below.
Chiefs vs Raiders preview
At the start of this month, the Chiefs were hailed as Super Bowl frontrunners and the Raiders were 3-5 and had just parted ways with their head coach and general manager. Yet somehow, inexplicably, Las Vegas could ignite a genuine AFC West title race today, especially if KC's offensive woes continue.
Chiefs inactives: RB Jerick McKinnon, WR Kadarius Toney, DE BJ Thompson, OL Mike Caliendo, DT Neil Farrell, DE Malik Herring
Raiders inactives: CB Jakorian Bennett, QB Brian Hoyer, S Roderic Teamer, LB Amari Burney, C Hroniss Grasu, DT Byron Young, DT Nesta Jade Silvera
The reigning champions still have a cushion at the top of the division standings, but it's been beat so thin that even the Broncos, who started the campaign with five defeats from six, now fancy a look-in.
The Chiefs are reeling after throwing away a 17-7 half-time lead to lose 21-17 to the Eagles on Monday, and it's that offense that's drawing all of the heat. They've now failed to score a single measly second-half point in three straight games, and over the course of the season they're averaging 5.3 second-half points and 1.9 fourth-quarter points – both league-worst figures.
Patrick Mahomes had the right to feel aggrieved after Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Justin Watson and Travis Kelce each made costly handling errors on Monday, but he wasn't entirely faultless himself, and the Raiders defense is coming off an impressive showing against the Dolphins.
Interim head coach Antonio Pierce just needs to find a way to inject some life into his offense. Aidan O'Connell went 24 of 41 for 271 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions, and if running back Josh Jacobs hadn't had a rare off-day, they could easily be 6-5 rather than 5-6.
