Heading into Week 6, the Raiders face another division rival as they will go on the road to face the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. It will be another measuring stick game for the Raiders, who have shown potential. However, the Raiders were 10-point underdogs right out of the game on Monday, but the spread has changed since then according to Sportsbook.com via Twitter:

The Chiefs will come into this game against the Raiders having won all five of their games played this season. Even though the competition hasn’t been all that strong for Kansas City throughout the first five games, the Chiefs appear to be as advertised under new head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Alex Smith.
The divisional showdown between the Raiders and Chiefs will get underway on Sunday at 10:00 AM PT on CBS.
In Week 5, the Oakland Raiders got the best of their division rival as they beat the San Diego Chargers, 27-17.
With speculation surrounding the possibilities of signing quarterback Josh Freeman, Terrelle Pryor returned from a concussion and set the tone early for the Raiders. He threw for two touchdown passes in the first quarter, including a 44-yard touchdown pass to Rod Streater on the team’s first play. However, the offense was sputtering in the second half and the Chargers were marching down the field, trying to get within one score.
Fortunately, Charles Woodson recovered a fumble from Danny Woodhood which tied an NFL record with 13 defensive touchdowns.
