It will be the first home game of the season for the Kansas City Chiefs tomorrow afternoon at Arrowhead as they take one of their most hated opponents, the Oakland Raiders. This will be the 101st time these two teams will meet.
The Chiefs are coming off a close game last Sunday in Baltimore where the game was not decided until the fourth quarter as the Ravens beat the Chiefs 38-24. Brodie Croyle played well in the absence of starting quarterback Matt Cassel, who still remains questionable for this game. Croyle was 16 of 24 for 177 yards with two touchdown passes.
The Raiders are coming off a close loss on Monday Night Football to San Diego, 24-20.
Last season, the two teams split their two games as the Raiders beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead in week 2, 23 to 8, while in week 13, the Chiefs beat the Raiders in Oakland, 20-13, for one of their two wins on the season.
This is expected to be a close game as the last 12 times these two rivals have met, the games have been decided by an average of less than three points.
Kansas City will also commemorate their 50th season in the NFL with several events before and during the game and also at halftime. Kick off for tomorrow’s game will be at noon.
