The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Kansas City Chiefs in primetime in Week 10, and here are four reasons they will win the AFC West battle.
Last weekend, the Las Vegas Raiders struggled mightily against the New York Giants, something the Kansas City Chiefs had done the week before. In fact, Kansas City has struggled to look like a dominant team all season long, and many feel that the issues on both sides of the ball could leave them on the outside looking at the playoffs.
Here, we look at the Week 10 matchup, and why the Raiders will come away with the victory.
4 reasons the Las Vegas Raiders will beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10
Las Vegas pass rush
One of the big differences between the 2020 Las Vegas Raiders, and the 2021 version is their incredible pass rush. Mike Mayock did an outstanding job this offseason bringing in Yannick Ngakoue to bring pressure off the edge opposite Maxx Crosby, and both players are reaping the benefits of being teammates.
Against this Chiefs offensive line, the Raiders are going to be able to get pressure on Patrick Mahomes, and we have seen the former MVP struggle in those situations this season. Las Vegas should be able to disrupt what the Chiefs want to do on offense, especially downfield, as Mahomes is not going to have the time to let plays develop.
