Las Vegas Raiders entering crucial AFC West three-game stretch
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders are sitting at 4-3 this season, and are entering a crucial three-game stretch against AFC West opponents.
The Las Vegas Raiders took care of business on the road this past weekend, going into cold and windy FirstEnergy Stadium and beating the Cleveland Browns. It was the third time the Raiders have gone East and won a game this season, and they will now get ready to prepare for a crucial three-game set against all AFC West opponents.
Las Vegas is 1-0 in the division, this after a stunning victory against the Kansas City Chiefs inside Arrowhead Stadium, a game that exorcised some demons for Derek Carr. The Raiders have done a nice job proving they belong in the conversation in terms of being a playoff contender, but they have to start playing consistent football, as the Chiefs win was followed by a home drubbing by Tampa Bay.
Still, the Raiders had issues with COVID-19 heading into the Bucs matchup, something they will be hoping to avoid throughout the rest of the 2020 NFL season. Sunday, they will head to SoFi Stadium to take on the Los Angeles Chargers in a matchup that was swept by the Raiders a year ago.
Here is a look at the Raiders next three games.
