The Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs, members of the AFC West division since 1970, have a longstanding rivalry.

A new commercial is highlighting that rivalry, in which the Chiefs hold a 60-52-2 edge since 1960.

In the ad for NFL Shop, a man is warned by his significant other that he “cannot wear a Raiders jersey to my family’s Christmas dinner.”

He removes the jersey to reveal an ugly sweater that lights up, leading to an awkward scene at the dinner table. Even the dog at the end of the ad isn’t pleased.

The Raiders won 31-30 on Oct. 19 in the rivals’ first matchup this season. The teams will meet at Arrowhead Stadium on Dec. 10.
