Kansas City is on the verge of landing the first pick in the draft. Though with a lackluster group of quarterbacks in the draft it is almost for naught. Brady Quinn has tried to lead the Chiefs since taking over for the ineffective Matt Casssel but he has not fared much better. In last weeks shellacking, at the hands of Cleveland,  Quinn completed 10-of-21 passes for 150 yards.

Running back Jamaal Charles was injured in that game but he figures to get a heavy workload after touching the ball over five times in the two teams previous match-up. Since then Charles has run for 100 or more yards in four of six games.

Oakland gave up a bunch to get Carson Palmer. Palmer has been decent at times but Oakland is still only a three win team after winning 8 games each of the last two seasons.

Oakland, which has lost six straight since beating the Chiefs, and Kansas City each are allowing 131.2 rushing yards per game — tied for 26th in the NFL — and the Raiders (3-10) hope to get some production from their top back as well. Head coach Dennis Allen has said that Terrell Pryor will get playing time over the teams last three games, which should be interesting to say the least.

Which team will play well enough to lay claim to a win on Sunday?
