With that said, let us take a look at some reasonable expectations for the Silver and Black in this matchup.
3 reasonable expectations for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021 Week 10
Derek Carr outplays Patrick Mahomes
We start out with the matchup at quarterback, where one is a perennial MVP candidate, and the other is in the middle of one of his best seasons yet. On Sunday night, Carr will get his first crack at the Chiefs in front of the home fans, and he won’t disappoint.
Coming off his worst game of the season, Carr is going to be up for the challenge, and he has a legitimate deep threat in the newly-acquired DeSean Jackson. Look for Carr to throw deep against a very beatable Chiefs secondary, outplaying his counterpart Mahomes in this one.
