Las Vegas Raiders X-Factors against Kansas City in Week 10
Maxx Crosby’s name must be in the discussion when you talk about the best edge defenders in the NFL this season. According to PFF, Crosby leads the league in total pressures with 50 and has put himself firmly in the all-pro discussion midseason. Therefore, he will be an x-factor in almost any game because he has a chance to wreck any offense he faces.
The Chiefs do have a solid offensive line, but for Crosby, he’ll be working against the weakest link in right tackle Lucas Niang. And on the Sunday night stage, Crosby will get an ample opportunity to show the national audience once again just how dominant of a player he has been.
The 2021 NFL season is well underway, and as we look at the post-Week 9 NFL power rankings, did the Las Vegas Raiders fall outside of the top-10?
Overall, this has all the makings of what should be an epic game inside Allegiant Stadium in primetime on Sunday night. Las Vegas has a chance to put their stamp on this season with a monster win against a big-time division rival, but these X-factors will have to step up for them to do so.
