WR Nick Miller Brandon Flowers will play. Matt Cassel is now cleared to start. Keys to the game for the Chiefs: –Avoid three and outs-The Chiefs forced their defense to play football for 40 minutes. And that defense still gave the Chiefs an opportunity to win the game, which shows you how big of an asset they can be. –Protect the QB-Give Matt Cassel time. Other than the final drive of the game, the Chiefs only gave up one sack. This defensive line is going to challenge the Chiefs. Tight end Brad Cottam won’t play. Therefore, tight end Sean Ryan and fullback Mike Cox will need to step up and be the extra key blocker incase Greg Ellis or Richard Seymour get through our offensive line. –Stop the run-The Raiders have Darren McFadden and Michael Bush running the ball. With Justin Fargas, they ran for 300 rushing yards against Kansas City in week two’s home opener for the Chiefs. The Chiefs 3-4 defense will be tested. If they can stop the run, they will have to rely on Jamarcus Russell. Oh, don’t forget, Brandon Flowers is back today. So the Raiders will need Russell to be mistake free. Lets see how that goes. I’m picking Kansas City to win this game 20-17.

70 hours past

It’s been 70 hours since Chiefs head coach, Todd Haley, lost his first game as an NFL head coach. He’s learned a lot, and I must say, he’s done a great job the past 70 hours finding ways to improve his football team. He started off by bringing in former Vikings wide receiver, Bobby Wade, who previously worked with Haley in Chicago. The Chiefs also brought in another receiver from Arizona, Lance Long, to the practice squad. The Chiefs waived linebacker Turk McBride and wide receiver Rodney Wright.

Although these are improvements, the Chiefs will need to bring in some offensive lineman. Left tackle Branden Albert allowed two sacks and right guard Mike Goff allowed one. I’m not pushing for the panic button asking for new players after one game just because of sacks, but the Chiefs offensive coordinator (we all know who that is), needs to be cautious and get ready to bring in linemen soon. The Chiefs did not provide the best protection for the backfield this past Sunday. Newly acquired defensive end for the Raiders, Richard Seymour, got off to a fast start this past Monday. Seymour and seven others are leading the NFL in sacks with two. This past Monday, the Raiders put Seymour on every position at defensive line. Seymour came through with sacks and applied pressure on Philip Rivers throughout the night in front of millions of people on ESPN. Without a doubt, the Raiders will place Seymour against the weakest Chief on the line of scrimmage. On episode 166 of “The Chiefs Zone,” I suggested that the Chiefs stick their 6-7 tight end on whatever side Seymour is on for most of the game. That way, the Chiefs will have protection and the offensive lineman will receive blocking help throughout the game against Seymour. Seymour will definitely be a game changer for the Raiders this year and will take advantage of his pass rushing abilities. How will Todd Haley prepare for the former three time Super Bowl champion?
