FIVE THINGS TO WATCH
What a rush: The Chiefs hope outside linebacker Tamba Hali returns after he missed a game because of a broken thumb and a knee injury, but linebacker Justin Houston still is recovering from a hyperextended knee. Dee Ford has been replacing Houston, but he struggled in last week’s victory over the Cleveland Browns.
Woodson’s farewell: After an emotional final game at O.co Coliseum last week, Raiders safety Charles Woodson, 39, will end his 18-year career at Arrowhead Stadium – where it began. Woodson is tied for fifth with Ken Riley with 65 career interceptions and is tied with Rod Woodson and Darren Sharper for the most defensive touchdowns with 13.
Triplets: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr needs 207 passing yards to reach 4,000. That would give Oakland a 4,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher (Latavius Murray) and 1,000-yard receiver (Amari Cooper) for the first time in franchise history. The 1996 New England Patriots (Drew Bledsoe, Terry Glenn and Curtis Martin) are the only other team to have three players 25 or under reach those marks in the same season.
Record chasing: Carr needs three touchdown passes to match Daryle Lamonica’s season franchise record of 34 set in 1969, while pass rusher Khalil Mack needs one sack to tie Derrick Burgess’ team record of 16 set in 2005. “Guys that come in this league that have talent (and) work hard like he does, it gives him a chance to do special things,” Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said of Mack.
Speaking of records: A win today would be the Chiefs’ 10th consecutive, a franchise first. Kansas City has won nine in a row three times. “I think momentum’s a real thing, and that stuff builds,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “These stages get bigger and bigger. That’s why you’ve been doing all of that, for these moments. And it’s embracing that.”
