It is a big week for the Chiefs…Raider Week. This week comes around twice a season and this year’s matchups are extremely important as the AFC West division is closer than ever.

Living in Arizona, I don’t get to go to many Chiefs’ games. But since my dad is a die-hard Raiders fan, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take him to this Sunday Night’s game in Las Vegas.

I will be at Allegiant Stadium proudly cheering my heart out for Chiefs Kingdom, but I am not confident like I have been in past years. There is no denying that the Chiefs have been struggling. And even though the Raiders have been faced with plenty of drama this season, they seem to be more in sync than Kansas City.

Chiefs Game Preview (5-4)

Yes, the Chiefs defeated the Packers but it wasn’t pretty with a 13 to 7 victory. They went against quarterback Jordan Love in his first NFL career start and the defense did their job, blocking a field goal and holding the Packers to only one touchdown. But Mahomes and the offense had yet another rough game.

Mahomes was able to connect with Travis Kelce for a touchdown but failed to get the ball to his receivers, throwing short passes all game. The good news is, he didn’t throw an interception! He actually only threw for 166 yards and averaged a career-low 4.5 yards per pass attempt. Darrell Williams was the top rusher with 70 yards and the offense finished with 237 total yards.

The Chiefs have already lost to an AFC West opponent when they hosted the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3. So winning this game is crucial if the Chiefs want to land a playoff spot. If Mahomes can’t get the ball to his receivers, Kansas City needs to rely more on the run game. And that means feeding Darrell Williams and Derrick Gore. But Maxx Crosby, Yannick Ngakoue, and the rest of the Raiders’ defense might make that difficult.

Raiders Game Preview (5-3)

The Raiders are coming off a tough few weeks, after parting ways with head coach Jon Gruden and releasing Henry Ruggs III and Damon Arnette. So, it is no surprise the Raiders lost to the Giants last week.

Josh Jacobs was the leading rusher with 76 yards and Darren Waller had 92 receiving yards. With Ruggs gone, Renfrow stepped in as the top wide receiver and got a touchdown for the silver and black. Quarterback Derek Carr threw for 296 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. The offense did finish with an impressive 403 yards, but it was the three turnovers that hurt them.

Las Vegas has been averaging 24.5 points per game and 8.2 yards per pass attempt. It is hard to believe that Derek Carr is having a much better year than Patrick Mahomes. And on top of that, the Raiders’ defense could be a problem for Mahomes and his offense. They had three sacks on the Giants and we know that the Chief’s offensive line isn’t the best right now. It could be another game of Mahomes running for his life.

Last Season’s Matchups

The Raiders stunned the nation beating the Chiefs at home last season 40 to 32 in their first matchup. Carr finished the game with 347 passing yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Jacobs had a decent game with 77 rushing yards and two TDs. It was Henry Ruggs who racked up 118 receiving yards and 1 TD. But with him off the roster, Renfrow or new addition DeSean Jackson will have to step it up. Raiders allowed only one sack during that game and finished with a whopping 490 yards. This could be a repeat at home this time.

The Chiefs lost but had a pretty good game with 413 yards. It was the TEN penalties for 94 yards that ultimately hurt them. Mahomes had 340 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. He can hopefully get back to those numbers. I hope the same for Kelce, who has had a quiet year so far. He finished the Raiders loss with 108 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Things were a little different when the Chiefs traveled to play at Allegiant Stadium in Vegas for the first time. It was an incredible game, with the Chiefs getting the victory. Mahomes threw for 348 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. It was the passing game that was on fire, with Kelce racking up 127 receiving yards and one TD. Tyreek Hill also had over 100 yards with 102 and one TD. The Chiefs ended the game with 460 total yards, but again with the ten penalties, this time for 89 yards.

The Raiders also had a handful of penalties, a total of eight for 72 yards. Carr had 275 passing yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. It was also a big passing game for Las Vegas, with Waller finishing with 88 receiving yards and one touchdown. The Raiders put up a good fight, but Mahomes and the gang were too much for them, winning 35 to 31. Things probably won’t be like that this year with the Chiefs’ offense nowhere near where they were last year.

But we can always expect a division matchup with this caliber to be a good game. Let’s just hope the Chiefs start playing like they should and start winning more games so they can get back to the playoffs!
