The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a loss to the New York Giants and look to bounce back against AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs.
The Las Vegas Raiders needed a win on Sunday, not for the playoff or division position, but just to get a good feeling in that visitor’s locker room. It has been a crazy month for the Silver and Black, and on Sunday, things got worse, as they lost to the lowly New York Giants.
Quarterback Derek Carr had his worst game of the season turning the ball over three times, including a pick-six interception. The Raiders also struggled big time in the red zone, as they made six appearances, and came away with only one touchdown.
The offense needs to do its job and step up, as, in all three losses, the defense has played well enough to win, but the offense or special teams haven’t performed in those games. The Raiders need to put a complete game together against the Kansas City Chiefs to come out with a victory on Sunday Night Football, even if the Chiefs do not look like their dominating selves in this season.
They could turn it on at any point of the season and their defense has even performed better the past two weeks, even if those games were against Jordan Love, a player making his first start in the NFL, and Daniel Jones, who only passed for 102 yards against the Raiders. Kansas City’s defense is finally getting healthy, so the battle is on Sunday night.
Certain players need to step up in the second half of the season for the Raiders to be successful, but let’s take a look at three players to watch on Sunday Night Football against the Chiefs.
