The Chiefs just played the Buffalo Bills and won 33-20. They are now 6-5 and are in second place in AFC West. Oakland just played Marcus Mariota and the Titans. They won by a score of 24-21. Oakland has improved to 5-6 and they’re in third place in AFC West.

Rookie Amari Cooper is Oakland’s number-one receiver this year. He has caught 58 passes this year for a total of 851 yards. Cooper averages 14.7 yards per catch and has four touchdowns this season.
For this game, I’m taking Oakland. They just came off a good road win, and now they’ll be playing at home. While their numbers may not be the most impressive, they can play solid football. People tend to blow Oakland off, but they aren’t a pushover team.
