Raiders (10-2) at Chiefs (9-3)
7:25 p.m. Thursday, NFL Network, KXAS/5
Line: Chiefs by 3
Regular-season games don’t get much bigger. Since losing to Kansas City 26-10 in Week Six, Oakland has won six games in a row, including last week against Buffalo in which the Raiders overcame a 24-9 deficit with 29 unanswered points. Defense and special teams continue to lift Kansas City, which scored on a fake punt, an interception and a returned a two-point conversion in Atlanta to help give the Chiefs their 20th win in their past 23 games dating to 2015. At stake: The lead in the AFC West and an increased chance of earning one of the AFC’s top two playoff spots, and the bye which comes with that.
