If the Las Vegas Raiders hope to knock off the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night, they’ll need to account for these vital X-factors in the matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders have an opportunity to head into their bye week with much-needed momentum if they can pull off the win in Week 5. The Silver and Black will be on primetime in a Monday Night Football tilt against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Historically, the past few games between these two have either been tightly contested shootouts, or easy blowouts (much to the chagrin of the Raiders fanbase).
If the Raiders want to achieve the former, they’ll need to execute on both sides of the ball as well as ensure they take advantage of momentum opportunities that come their way. Besting Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid won’t come easy, but Las Vegas has done it before and they can do it again.
Ahead of Monday night, these are the x-factors that can lead the Raiders to victory over the Chiefs.
