The Chiefs played tug of war for three quarters with the Patriots on Monday Night Football before pulling away in the final fifteen minutes.
The Raiders trailed from the outset against Buffalo and never quite got even, eventually losing by a touchdown to fall back to 2–2.
Las Vegas Raiders
Derek Carr is an accurate passer and went thirty-two for forty-four against the Bills. He found his big tight end, Darren Waller, nine times for eighty-eight yards.
That has not been the consistent connection some thought it would be all season for Vegas. Defenses have been keying in on Waller and the other Raiders have not been able to take the pressure off.
Henry Ruggs III was supposed to be a guy to stretch the defense on the perimeter but he’s out with an injury.
Josh Jacobs is elusive in the backfield but he’s been banged up, despite not yet missing a game.
Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow have been okay but not spectacular receiving threats. Opposing defenses are simply making them make plays and, so far, they have not made enough.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs will likely take the same plan into this matchup of division rivals.
They turned the Patriots over on Monday a few different times and held New England to ten points. Kansas City has not given up more than twenty points to any of its first four opponents.
Couple that sort of defense with Patrick Mahomes’ explosive offense and you have an undefeated team that may not lose more than a game this season, if at all.
The speed on the outside is well-known by now. There just aren’t many teams that can matchup with Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman on the outside.
That said, Travis Kelce looks just half a step slower this season. He’s still a good tight end but he doesn’t quite have the speed he used to, which makes the Chiefs a little more manageable for defenses.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire has done what he was asked to do when Kansas City made him its first round pick earlier this year. He is a physical runner up the middle and can catch and block out of the backfield — an every down runner. As a result, Damien Williams’ usage has faded away.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Vegas +12.5
Kansas City sure looks good but it isn’t easy being the defending champion, even less so against a division rival on a short week.
I’m not calling for the upset here but look for Vegas to play the Chiefs tough and keep this one within ten.
