The Las Vegas Raiders suffered another brutal loss in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs, here are the studs and duds from a wild night at Arrowhead Stadium
It was another night game and another brutal loss at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders. After a bizarre game last year that featured Desean Jackson running the wrong way and dropping the ball, the Raiders and Chiefs played yet another dramatic and wonky game on primetime though it was much closer than many thought.
The Chiefs came into the game as 7.5-point favorites but the Raiders jumped out to a 17-0 lead that they, unfortunately, could not hold on to. A series of horrific refereeing decisions swung the game back and forth but mostly in favor of Kansas City and those same officials helped decide the game as well.
The Raiders played a mostly clean game were it not for a couple of very questionable calls and did not turn the ball over but fell just short of a much-needed win to set their season back on track. Now instead of being a respectable 2-3 going into the bye with some winnable games coming up, they sit at 1-4 and currently own the number one pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
There are still plenty of games to be played and nothing is set in stone just yet but this was a game the Raiders absolutely needed to win but they let it slip just like they did against Arizona earlier this season. Here are the studs and duds from yet another gut punch of a loss from a season shaping up to be a memorable one for all the wrong reasons.
