Two struggling teams with higher expectations will meet on Sunday as the Kansas City Chiefs travel to take on the Oakland Raiders.

The game pits two low scoring, poor defensive teams against one another with both offenses possessing opposite strengths and weaknesses. The Chiefs posses the No. 5 rushing offense in the NFL along with one of the worst passing attacks, while the Raiders average just 81.2 yards on the ground per game while slinging it 277.7 yards through the air, good for No. 7 overall.

The Chiefs, coming off their first win in nine weeks, lost to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in another lopsided defeat. Brady Quinn managed just 159 yards passing and one interception on 21 attempts, while Jamaal Charles put up 165 yards rushing on 18 carries. The Raiders, meanwhile, struggle to stop the run and allowed 140 yards rushing in their 26-13 loss to the Denver Broncos last week.

The Raiders are just 2.5-point favorites in the game, according to OddsShark, with the line currently set at 44. Kickoff is set for 3:15 p.m. CT on Sunday, with coverage on CBS.
