Las Vegas Raiders: Ranking the four 2021 nationally televised games
No. 1: Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs (SNF)
Looking at the four times the Raiders play on national television, the No.1 matchup is a bit of a no-brainer, as they take on their division rival in Week 10. The matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs at home is going to be a huge one, as they beat the Chiefs on the road last season, but lost inside Allegiant Stadium in a close matchup.
For the Chiefs, they will certainly be one of the best teams in the NFL once again this season, so beating them in front of the home crowd would be huge for Las Vegas. This matchup comes a week after they go on the road to take on the New York Giants on the East coast, so being in primetime at least gives them a bit more rest.
The Las Vegas Raiders will battle it out in the AFC West this season, and here are three newcomers they should be worried about.
Overall, the Raiders will certainly have a chance to knock off the Chiefs at home, and it will really depend on whether or not all the new defensive pieces can do some damage against Patrick Mahomes and this Chiefs offense. Derek Carr and company should be able to put up points, but if Mahomes and the Chiefs offense gets rolling, it could make for a heartbreaking loss inside Allegiant Stadium.
