Week 5: at Kansas City Chiefs (Monday Night Football)
In a primetime showdown right before the bye week, the Las Vegas Raiders will travel to Kansas City in an early-season battle on the road. The last time the Raiders played Kansas City this early on the road, they were able to shock them, but the outcome could be different this time around.
The Chiefs lost a key weapon on both sides of the ball this offseason, as Tyreek Hill was traded to Miami, and Tyrann Mathieu was signed by New Orleans in free agency. That could make the Chiefs a more beatable team, but any team with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback is going to be tough, especially at home.
Going on the road with a 4-0 record, the Raiders get tripped up by their division rival and go into the bye week coming off a loss. However, being 4-1 through the first five games is an excellent start to what could end up being one of the better regular seasons we have seen from the Raiders in a long time.
Record: 4-1 overall, 2-1 in AFC West
