Jon Gruden’s Las Vegas Raiders started Week 11 as underdogs. They had already beaten Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs by a narrow margin earlier this season. Derek Carr and Co. knew that the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs had revenge on their mind.

Skip Bayless takes a cheeky dig at Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes

On the latest segment of Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, the hosts analyzed Kansas City Chiefs’ recent win over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Skip Bayless was quick to point out that Mahomes and Co. were lucky that the Raiders had a number of defensive players ruled out due to COVID-19 complications.

“I’m going to be generous and give your Mahomeboy a B for that. Do you realize his degree of difficulty was absurdly, laughably low?

“Do you realize 10 Raiders on defense were on the COVID list all week and could not practice? Do you realize they couldn’t get ready for Patrick Mahomes with 10 players not able to even put on practice gear?

“Do you realize three starters couldn’t play because of COVID Cory Littleton, they’ve raved about him as the guy who solidified the whole defense at linebacker.

“No Lamarcus Joyner…big pieces to the puzzle were gone on defense. You should have eaten that defense alive. You should have thrown the biggest Las Vegas party ever,” Bayless said on the show.
