NFL Preview

Las Vegas Raiders aiming to pull off another upset against divisional rivals

Jon Gruden’s Las Vegas Raiders are currently on a three-game winning streak in the league. Despite a good run of results, the Raiders will be underdogs on Sunday night. The last time these two teams met, it was Derek Carr and Co. who walked away with a win, that too at the Arrowhead Stadium in Missouri.

RB Joshua Jacobs, TE Darren Waller and WR Henry Ruggs III will be crucial for the home team tomorrow night. However, there will be a greater emphasis on the Raiders defence to thwart the free-flowing Kansas City attack.

Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs hungry for revenge

Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs players will have ‘revenge’ on their mind when they travel to Las Vegas this weekend. The Chiefs have been flawless in recent weeks, winning eight of their nine games this season. Their sole loss in the league this year came at the hands of the Raiders in Week 5.

Kansas City star, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Mahomes have already gone public with their desire to claim payback for that loss. Their running backs, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Le’Veon Bell, will be key weapons for Andy Reid against a well-oiled Raiders defence. Defensive stars Tyrann Mathieu, Frank Clark and Chris Jones will have a busy night at the Allegiant Stadium.

With all the hype surrounding this game and everything that’s been said in the last week, it seems unlikely that reigning Super Bowl champions will allow their divisional rivals to beat them twice in the same season.

Mahomes is leading the charts in multiple categories and is once again part of the NFL MVP conversation along with Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson. Let’s hope the Super Bowl MVP shows the Raiders some mercy tomorrow night.
