By Brad Weiss
Here are the keys to victory if the Las Vegas Raiders are going to shock the Kansas City Chiefs again in Week 11, moving to 4-0 in the division.
The Las Vegas Raiders can move to 4-0 in the AFC West on Sunday night, as they welcome the 8-1 Kansas City Chiefs to Allegiant Stadium. The Chiefs are coming off their bye week, and have looked unbeatable at times this season, but the Raiders are the only team to have beaten them in 2020, and will be looking for their first series sweep in the last eight years.
Here are the keys to victory for the Raiders against the Chiefs in Week 11.
Feed Josh Jacobs
In order for the Raiders to have a legitimate chance to beat the Chiefs on Sunday night, they need to pound Kansas City into submission with star running back Josh Jacobs. Jacobs is currently third in the NFL in rushing yards, and after the team lowering his work load early in the season, they have relied on him in a big way, as he has rushed for 20 or more carries in three of the last five games.
Keeping the Chiefs offense on the sidelines is going to be huge if the Raiders want to win Sunday night, and Jacobs, along with backup Devontae Booker, will help them do that. Jacobs can get you yards in bunches, or the tough ones to extend drives, and against this Chiefs defense, he is going to find room to operate.
