The Kansas City Chiefs came into Allegiant Stadium and took control of the AFC West with a 41-14 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders in Allegiant Stadium.
The Kansas City Chiefs came into this game in third place in the AFC West, while the Las Vegas Raiders were looking to give themselves a lead in the division against their rival. However, while Kansas City has struggled recently, they looked like the Chiefs of old, as Patrick Mahomes threw five touchdown passes against the Silver and Black.
In a game that Raider Nation would like to forget, the Chiefs took advantage of every opportunity, and you could see from the outset that this one could be an issue for the Raiders. Las Vegas tried to hang in and looked to be back in it towards the middle of the third quarter, but it was all Kansas City, in the end, scoring 17 unanswered to win 41-14.
There was a lot to take from this game, including more questions than answers, as the Raiders looked nothing like the team that got out to a 5-2 start. They struggled on defense, were very undisciplined upfront on both sides of the ball, and Derek Carr was shaky at best.
We learned a lot about the Las Vegas Raiders in this game, but here are three of the more important things that we learned on Sunday Night.
