2012 NFL schedule: Chiefs host rival Raiders late Sunday afternoon in Week 8

The Chiefs return from a week off to host their AFC West division rival Raiders in a late game Sunday afternoon in Week 8 of NFL action.

Fresh off their bye week, the Kansas City Chiefs will remain home in Week 8 as they host their division rival Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

Quarterback Brady Quinn will make his second consecutive start for the scuttling 1-5 Chiefs as head coach Romeo Crennel has elected to keep Matt Cassel in a backup role indefinitely.

Quinn completed 22-of-38 passes for 180 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chiefs' 38-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 14.

The Raiders (2-4), meanwhile, will also return from their bye week after losing a close contest on the road against the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 14, 23-20.

Kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m. CT at Arrowhead Stadium, and the game can be seen on CBS.
