The Kansas City Chiefs hosts the Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football. The game kicks off on both NBC and NFL Network at 8:25 p.m. Eastern.

Here’s the details for tonight’s game.

Date: Thursday, December 8, 2016

Time: 8:25 p.m. Eastern

Location: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

TV Channel: NBC and NFL Network

Line: Chiefs by 3 (Line is according to OddsShark and subject to change.)

Game Preview: The Chiefs and Raiders square off for the second time this season. Kansas City got the 26-10 road victory in their October matchup. Chiefs running back Spencer Ware was the star of the game with 131 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Both teams are riding hot streaks heading into tonight’s contest. Kansas City has won seven of their last eight games while Oakland has won six straight games. The Raiders enter Thursday night’s game with a one game lead on the Chiefs.

Oakland and Kansas City have their eyes not only on the division but on a high playoff seed in the AFC. The winner of the AFC West will likely get one of the first two seeds and a first round bye.

A win for the Chiefs would put them even with the Raiders for the division while a Raiders win would add considerable distance between the two teams with just a few weeks remaining in the regular season.
