The Las Vegas Raiders play host to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10, and here are three things to keep an eye on in the matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a tough loss to the New York Giants, as they came out of their bye week and struggled going east against a team they should have won. Derek Carr had his worst game of the season, committing three turnovers, but he gets a chance to put that effort in the past on Sunday night.
This is a huge Week 10 matchup, as the Kansas City Chiefs come to Allegiant Stadium in a game the Raiders must win. Here are three things to keep an eye on.
Las Vegas Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs: 3 things to watch in Week 10
Can the Raiders start fast?
The Las Vegas Raiders need to make a statement early on against the Kansas City Chiefs, especially with how bad the Chiefs have looked offensively recently. Putting Patrick Mahomes and company in a hole early will show that there are no ill-effects from the loss in Week 9 and that the team has put that in the past.
We have seen this team start slow far too often this season, and against a division rival at home, that cannot be the case. The Giants were able to go right down the field against this defense to start last Sunday’s game, something that must be avoided as well, as they do not want to give Mahomes any kind of confidence early on.
