The HEdgie had a nice week off to study film and has A FIVE STAR play for THURSDAY NIGHT

On October 1st  during the Raiders Broncos game David Carr was sacked and fractured his vertebrae.    He came back last week and played vs the Chargers and looked tentative. Now he's playing on a short week as well.  The Hedgie has no doubt that Carr is tough.  But he doesn't look ready to play good football !     Also, the Raiders Oline has some injuries and hasn't played up to expectations.  They are on an 0-4 skid and it appears David Carr is trying to be the savior. Sometimes a wounded team on a losing streak will come out and play great.  The Giants did this last week in Denver. But this Raiders skid looks more injury based.   This is a tough spot for them . The Chiefs have owned the Raiders in this Rivalry lately.  They's won the last 5 meetings and are 4-1 ATS  in that span.  They are coming off their first loss of the season  and the Chiefs are 14-3  ATS  their last 17 road games.  Hedgie expects an effort like week 1  when they traveled to New England and took care of business.    Expect to see alot of  Kareem Hunt vs the 23rd ranked run defense.  

CHIEFS     24  Raiders 13  

CHIEFS  -3  5 stars 

Chiefs / Raiders UNDER 46.5   2 stars  (for the Raiders to have any chance they must run Lynch all night  which lends itself to the under)
