Chiefs vs. Raiders: 10 Stats to Know

Here are 10 things to keep in mind for the game on Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs (10-5) take on the Oakland Raiders (7-8) on Sunday afternoon at 3:25 p.m. CT at Arrowhead Stadium.

Here are 10 stats to know about the game:

1. Besides just the playoff scenarios, a win would set a franchise record for the Chiefs

The Chiefs have currently won nine consecutive games, which ties a franchise record (2003, 2013). A win on Sunday could not only affect their playoff position and potential AFC West championship, but it would also set a franchise record for consecutive wins with 10.

The Chiefs have already joined the 1970 Cincinnati Bengals as the only teams in NFL history to begin a season with a 1-5 record and rally to make the playoffs.

And what a rally it has been.

2. Rookie Marcus Peters has opportunity to set a few more records

Peters is already tied for the NFL lead with 8 interceptions this season, which also ties him with Bobby Hunt (1962) for most interceptions in franchise history by a rookie.

But Peters also just needs 1 more pass defensed to set a franchise record for most in a season by any player, not just a rookie. He's currently tied with Brandon Carr, who had 25 back in 2010.

Peters should be in serious contention for the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year award. He's certainly earned it, as he's transformed a Chiefs defense that struggled to take away the ball last season. Peters' 8 interceptions rank among the best in the NFL this season in that category.

3. Raiders also have a few records they're going for on Sunday

With 1 touchdown pass on Sunday, second-year quarterback Derek Carr would move into second place on the NFL's all-time list for touchdowns thrown in a player's first two years in the league with 53 (Dan Marino, 68).

With 3 touchdowns on Sunday, Carr would also tie the Raiders franchise record for touchdowns passing in a season (Daryle Lamonica, 34, 1969).

Lamonica's final game of 1969 came in the AFC championship game, during which he went 15 of 39 for 167 yards with no touchdowns and 3 interceptions against the Emmitt Thomas-led (2 interceptions) Kansas City Chiefs, who won the game 17-7 and would go on to win Super Bowl IV 23-7 over the Minnesota Vikings.

4. Charles Woodson will play his final game right where he started

The first game of the illustrious career of Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson's career came back on September 6, 1998 against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Flash forward 254 career games and 65 interceptions later, which ties him for fifth on the NFL's all-time list, Woodson will bid farewell to the NFL in the stadium he made his debut, when he finished with 6 tackles in a 28-8 loss by the Raiders.

5. Can Maclin repeat back-to-back big performances against the Raiders?

In their first meeting four weeks ago, Maclin finished with 9 catches for 95 yards and 2 touchdowns, leading the Chiefs offensively in their 34-20 win over the Raiders.

Maclin needs just 3 receptions to break the franchise record for most in a season by a Chiefs receiver, which is currently held by Dwayne Bowe, who had 86 back in 2008.

7. Short-yardage defense continues to stand tall for Chiefs

In third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 situations, the Chiefs defense is allowing conversions only 44.1 percent of the time, which ranks as the best mark in the NFL.

The NFL average is 66.1 percent.

8. Chiefs aren't giving it away

The Chiefs won the turnover battle in the first game, 3-0, and it ended up being the difference with three fourth-quarter interceptions.

Over the course of the season, the Chiefs have only turned the ball over 13 times, which ranks as the best mark in the NFL.

Their plus-15 turnover differential ranks as second-best in the NFL (Carolina Panthers, plus-19).

9. Key milestones within reach for several players

Cairo Santos needs just one more 50-plus-yard field goal to give him 5 for the season, which would break the current franchise record. Santos is currently tied with Nick Lowery (1980) with 4.

Tamba Hali (86) needs just 1 more sack to pass Neil Smith (86.5) for second on the franchise's all-time sacks list.

Ron Parker (6) is just 1 sack shy of breaking the franchise's all-time sacks record by a defensive back. The record is currently held by Reggie Tongue (6.5).

10. The Chiefs have dominated the fourth quarter recently

Over the past six games, the Chiefs have outscored their opponents 50-3 in the fourth quarter.
