We’re back for another week of Thursday Night Football, and this could be a fun one. The Oakland Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs in what should be a fun divisional matchup that Oakland absolutely must win. The game will broadcast on CBS nationally, and will be live streamed on Amazon Prime everywhere else. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT, with Mike Tirico and Cris Collinsworth calling the game from the booth, and Heather Cox on the sideline.
This game features a host of ex-49ers, including Alex Smith and Michael Crabtree. But the big story for 49ers fans is the Raiders debut of NaVorro Bowman. He was released by the 49ers last Friday, signed with the Raiders on Monday, and will be starting tonight at middle linebacker. That’s quite the turnaround!
The Raiders are a field goal underdog, but I have a hunch they spring the outright upset in this one. The betting is heavy on the Chiefs, but I think we see an improved offensive performance to get the Raiders outright win.
