(NEW YORK) — An old AFC West rivalry will be revisited on Sunday when the Oakland Raiders (2-4) travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs (1-5).
It’s a critical game for both if they have any chance at getting back in the AFC West title chances.
Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer isn’t buying into the Chiefs poor record.
“It’s going to be an extremely physically game, we’ve got our mindset for that,” said Palmer. “We’re ready for that, but it’s going to be a four-quarter battle.”
Oakland head coach Dennis Allen is preparing his team for a very physical game on Sunday.
“This is a team that when you watch the tape and look at the way that they’ve played, they’ve got the potential to be a lot better than what their record might state,” said Allen.
Kansas City head coach Romeo Crennel is psyched about the rivalry. “Some of these young kids they don’t understand it, they don’t know it. You talk to them about how close the games have been. I know since I’ve been here, two of them have been overtime games,” said Crennel. “It’s going to be a battle.”
Kickoff is set for 4:05 PM Eastern.
