Las Vegas Raiders 2020 Week 11 review: Studs and Duds
The Las Vegas Raiders were unable to overcome the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11 and here are the studs and duds from the riveting matchup.
It’s official, the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs rivalry is back on in full effect. After several years of one-sided domination by the Chiefs, the Raiders punched back with a victory in Arrowhead Stadium and came up just one stop short of sweeping the series and going 4-0 in the division.
In addition to a division win, it would have also been of course a conference win as well which could have gone a long way towards helping the Raiders in the wild card race. Instead, the Raiders dropped to 6-4 but thanks to that conference tiebreaker are still in the playoffs as it stands today.
The Raiders success on Sunday night was a combination of factors and the outstanding performances of several players but on the other side of that coin, their defeat was due to a few not so outstanding performances. Despite the loss, the Silver and Black announced themselves in a way and showed once again that they can compete with the big boys in the NFL on a national stage.
They beat the NFC South leading Saints in their first primetime matchup but couldn’t make it two for two in the NFL’s weekly showcase games. With Week 11 in the rearview and the Raiders still two games over .500, let’s discuss the studs and duds from the loss to Kansas City.
