The Kansas City Chiefs make their visit to Allegiant Stadium to face the Las Vegas Raiders, here are three things to watch in this pivotal AFC West matchup.
Since their meeting in Week 5, the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders have gone a combined 7-1 with the lone blemish a COVID-tainted defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Las Vegas. The Chiefs rolled over three AFC opponents and narrowly escaped the feisty but ultimately flawed Carolina Panthers.
The Raiders also beat three AFC opponents including two from the AFC West and are currently undefeated in their division.
With these two teams on a collision course, the Chiefs are still two games ahead of the Raiders in the standings but a win for the Silver and Black would go a long way towards establishing themselves as a legitimate contender. This is just another game for the Chiefs but there is some added spice after the Raiders took a victory lap around Arrowhead Stadium after their Week 5 victory.
There are several storylines that are driving the interest in this week’s primetime matchup but the biggest win is simple, these are two good football teams who are facing off under the bright lights. Let’s break down a few of the key factors and things to watch in this Week 11 AFC West matchup between two historic rivals.
