Opponent comparison

• Last Meeting: Chiefs beat Raiders, 34-27, on Dec. 5 at Oakland.

• Last Week: Raiders beat Titans, 40-35. Chiefs beat Broncos, 45-17.

• Key Matchup: Raiders middle linebacker Danny Clark vs. Chiefs running back Larry Johnson. Last week, Johnson had 151 yards on 30 carries and two touchdowns. Johnson, a 2003 first-round pick, has run for more than 100 yards in each of his last three games and scored five times. Clark leads the Raiders with 114 tackles, but the Raiders allow 130 yards rushing per game and have given up 18 rushing touchdowns, second most in the league.

• Game Notes: According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Chiefs are the first team in NFL history with three backs rushing for 150 yards in different games in one season. Johnson, Priest Holmes and Derrick Blaylock have done it. . . . Raiders defensive backs Charles Woodson and Marques Anderson were arrested for public intoxication early Monday. Anderson practiced Tuesday, but Woodson was held out because of a knee injury and is doubtful. . . . The last time the Chiefs played on Christmas was in the 1971 playoffs, when they lost to the Dolphins in the longest NFL game ever (82 minutes 40 seconds).
