Kansas City Chiefs Look for Payback at Las Vegas Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs have only one blemish on their 2020 record and they are looking for payback. The loss was a 40-32 defeat at home to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Offense was not the problem for the Chiefs on that night. The team could not slow down Derek Carr and the Raiders’ offense. The Chiefs have won at Buffalo and Denver and then beaten the Jets and Carolina at home.

They come out of their bye week to visit the Raiders. The Raiders come in with a 6-3 record but are a perfect 3-0 in the AFC West. They started the season 3-2 but have reeled off three games in a row. They had victories at Cleveland and in Los Angeles over the Chargers. Last week they beat the Denver Broncos by 25 points at home.

Can the Chiefs even up the season series? Will the Raiders pull off another upset? Take a look at our preview of this AFC West showdown.

Why the Chiefs Will Win

Patrick Mahomes has 25 touchdown passes against just a single interception this year. That interception came late against the Raiders. Safety Jeff Heath picked off a high pass from Mahomes to help seal the win. His top targets have been Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. The duo has combined to catch 15 touchdown passes going into tonight’s game.

Rookie tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire leads the team with 589 yards and two scores on the ground. New addition Le’Veon Bell has given the team even more versatility in the backfield and it will be interesting to see how they keep everyone happy.

On defense the Chiefs have been much improved this season. They are allowing 20.3 points per game. Chris Jones leads the team with 5 ½ sacks. L’Jarius Sneed leads the team with two interceptions.

Against the Raiders the Chiefs have covered the spread in 12 of their last 17 meetings away from Arrowhead Stadium. The Raiders have covered just twice in their last seven home games.

Why the Raiders Will Win

The Raiders have taken a huge step forward this year as part of Jon Gruden’s rebuilding process. Las Vegas is just 2-2 in their last four home games. Derek Carr is having his best season since 2016 when he led the Raiders to the brink of an AFC West title before going down to injury.

He has an impressive 16:2 TD:INT ratio this season. The only knock on him is that he remains too willing to take the dump-off passes that the defenses give him. That was one reason why the Patriots were able to beat the Raiders in the early going. Tailback Josh Jacobs has 700 yards in nine games. He has eight touchdowns to give Carr some offensive balance.

The defense could use some improvement. Jeff Heath leads the team with three interceptions in what has been a throwback season for him. Cory Littleton leads the team with 48 tackles. The team allows 26.8 points per game. Over their three-game winning streak, the Raiders have shown improvement on defense, but is it enough to contain the Chiefs?

The Final Word

I see Kansas City coming in with a chip on their shoulder, having had the bye to get ready for the Raiders. Give me the Chiefs in a convincing win.

The Dart Throw: Chiefs 37, Raiders 31
