Maybe it’s time the San Francisco 49ers look behind them and not toward the top of the NFC West.
“Two things are gonna happen that I believe are already done. It’s just a matter of time before they’re announced. Both the Rams and the Raiders are gonna go to L.A.”
The Oakland Raiders upset the Kansas City Chiefs last night 24-20 for their first win of the season. With the loss, the Chiefs (7-4) are no longer tied atop the AFC West with the Broncos.
Derek Carr threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with 1:42 remaining and the Oakland Raiders snapped a 16-game losing streak with a 24-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night.

With Kansas City’s impressive win against the Seahawks on Sunday and Denver’s shocking loss to the Rams, the Chiefs (7-3) are tied for first in the AFC West. After an 0-2 start, they’ll look for their sixth straight win and eighth in their last nine games.
Sure, Rex Ryan was happy to be 1-0 and saw some positives. He also knows the Jets should’ve cruised instead of holding on for a 19-14 victory against the Raiders.

With more weapons at his disposal, Smith and the Jets look for better things in his second season as they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
