Las Vegas Raiders: Keys to victory against the Chiefs in Week 10
Derek Carr must shake off this Week 9 performance
The NFL is full of the best football players on earth, and even the great ones have bad days. Despite two interceptions versus the New York Giants last week, there is no time for Derek Carr to harp on what transpired.
A quality performance against the Kansas City Chiefs is needed if the Silver and Black want to improve to 6-3 on the season. What does that entail, you may ask? No turnovers, to give a struggling Chiefs offense short fields. In addition, longer possessions and drives will keep a potent Raider pass rush fresh.
The Chiefs’ defense has slowly gotten better and blitz-happy in recent weeks, and if that is the case, Carr must take advantage of it. He has struggled with performing against the blitz this season, and he must improve in that facet of his game with a quickness not just for Sunday’s game but for a potential playoff run. Even though he struggled last week, there is a more significant cause for concern with the offense.
