The Kansas City Chiefs probably didn't expect to be tied atop the AFC West and fighting for the playoffs a month and a half ago, when they were off to the hottest start in the NFL.

Then again, the Oakland Raiders probably didn't either when they were off to a scuffling start.

But the two bitter rivals are in precisely that position as they prepare to face off Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

They are both 6-6 and tied with the Los Angeles Chargers for the division lead, ready for a four-game sprint to the finish line.
