Last year the Chiefs shredded the Raiders by 39 and 27 points and although they probably won't beat them that bad tonight, the Chiefs will probably be up most of the game. The Chiefs run defense has also been stout so far this year allowing a league low 68.5 rushing yards per game, but has allowed 263.8 (6th most) passing yards per game. Chiefs have allowed RB1 AND RB2s to cover this line in the last 3 weeks (RB1 covered week 1). That's SEVEN RBs that have covered this line vs the Chiefs this season. Here are RB total receiving yards per week... TB: 107 IND: 43 LAC: 85 ARI: 29.
So the Chiefs give up THE MOST receiving yards to running backs and Josh Jacobs doesn't share many snaps with teammates. Josh Jacobs has covered this line in his last two games with 31 receiving yards and 5 catches in both. He also had 5 catches in his last two games vs KC with 46 and 20 receiving yards. The Chiefs may frustrate the Raiders on the ground and force them to be creative with Jacobs in the backfield. Give us Josh to keep covering this line with a favorable game script vs the most favorable opponent in the NFL.
