Chiefs vs. Raiders: Recent history favors KC over Oakland

The Chiefs have won eight of nine in Oakland.

While the classic rivalry between the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders hasn't had much of an effect on the NFL's championship landscape for basically the last decade, the AFC West rivals still don't like each other and know to expect a battle each time they play.

They meet for the second time this season on Sunday and the 53rd time overall in Oakland/Los Angeles. Recently, the game in California has favored the Chiefs.

Kansas City has won eight of the last nine times they've traveled to play the Raiders, including a 28-0 humiliation of their rivals last year. The Raiders (3-10) won this year's previous meeting with the Chiefs (2-11) in Kansas City, 26-16 on Oct. 28.

Two of the worst teams in 2012, the Chiefs and Raiders basically have nothing but draft positioning and pride to play for. The Chiefs have a slight edge in the series' 108-game history, winning 55 meetings with two ties.

The Chiefs and Raiders kick off Sunday at Sunday at 3:25 p.m. CT. The game will be televised by CBS.
