Heading for the halfway mark of the NFL season, a bunch of questions have surfaced.

    Raiders at Chiefs (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET): Where did the Raiders' run defense go during their bye week? Since then, Oakland has given up more than 330 yards on the ground in two games. This week the Raiders face another top runner in Priest Holmes. Kansas City owned the Raiders until Marty Schottenheimer left, and after San Diego beat the Raiders last week, you could say Marty still owns them. But the Raiders have clicked on their last three trips to Kansas City, and their offense should make up for their deficiencies on defense.
