The AFC West is moving, the Oakland Raider are not in the bottom of it, while the Chiefs still in the top, they mat be worried of having the second game lost in row.  This Thursday Night game started week 7. As we expected it was a great game with many points a and big plays.

Derek Carr had a prominent night, he threw 417 yards, and Raiders had a total of 505 yards. It was really important for the Raiders to show that their offensive game still strong with the diversify of their  passing game with Carr,  supported by a strong RB. Although Marshawn Lynch was ejected from the game, the Raiders handled it well with Washington. Also , in the other side of the ball, the sign of Navarro Bowman, LB coming from the 49 ers added a strong component f the Raiders defense.

It was a very equal game. The Chiefs had 425 total yards and Alex Smith threw 331 yards. As always the playmakers from the chiefs had an important night; Tyrek Hill, Kareem Hunt, and Travis Kelce were major targets for Alex Smith. Although they could not win the game.

In the last drive many flags were present and Raiders had four opportunities to score the winning TD and they did it. The extra point by Giorgio Tavecchio gave the Raiders the W.

Finally, the outlook for the AFC West seem complicated while the Broncos will face the Chiefs after their bye week and the Chargers will trey to get out from the bottom of the division against the Patriots.
