Raiders vs Chiefs Prediction: Chiefs to win against the Rivals?
The Las Vegas Raiders will host their divisional rivals Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Allegiant. The Raiders are now above their rivals so they have something to brag about before the game starts, though they lost their previous game against the Giants which was quite a shock.
The Raiders have faced some terrible experience off the field in the past few weeks as their coach Jon Gurden was removed from his post and Henry Ruggs III was part of a road accident. Hope they don’t get influenced by their off field incidents.
The Chiefs have defeated the Packers last week 13-7. Their defence was very well handled but somehow they were not at their best when it comes to offence. The Chiefs will look to hurt the Raiders and grab a win over the divisional rivals as they lost their previous game so they could take advantage of the momentum. The Chiefs who have led the AFC West for the last five years would like to have an opportunity to go at the top with a win.
The match between the two divisional rivals will be an interesting to watch, as both the team will be wanting to claim a win. The Raiders will like to bounce back with a win and they have home advantage as well. The Chiefs will be coming to the game as favourites and will be determined to extend their winning run and go top of the table.
