Raiders vs. Chiefs: Hali, Winston prep for Oakland rivalry

Players, including Tamba Hali and Eric Winston, previewed Kansas City's game against Oakland on Sunday.

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs will be looking to start fresh following their bye week, and get to face off against an AFC West division rival to start. The Chiefs have limped to a 1-5 record to start off the season, but they can gain a bit of ground against the similarly-struggling Raiders.

Chiefs players seem to be working toward positivity going into the game against the Raiders. In a press conferecne following Thursday's practice, Tamba Hali said that "guys are ready to go. We’ve got our feet under us. We’re coming back with a different attitude. Guys have shaken off all the negative off of them and I think we’re ready to go. We just have to execute in the game and stay positive."

Neither the offense or defense has been great for the Chiefs this year, with the quarterback play specifically being stifled by defenses. That's not likely to get easier against the tough Raiders defense. Tackle Eric Winston noted that rivalry games against the Raiders tend to be harder than others, noting, "It’s always chippy when you play those guys" in the press conference.

Oakland will travel to Arrowhead Stadium at 3:05 p.m. CT on Sunday.
