Monday Night Football: Chiefs and Raiders

Week 5 of the NFL finished up Monday night as the Kansas City Chiefs play the Las Vegas Raiders at 8:15 p.m. The Chiefs are ranked No. 1 in their conference while the Raiders are ranked No. 4. The last time these two teams played each other, the Chiefs beat the Raiders 48-9.

Kansas City Chiefs (3-1)

After coming off a 41-31 win against the Tampa Bay Bucs, the Chiefs are ready to take on the Raiders. The Chief’s quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been named the AFC offensive player of the week after an outstanding performance while playing the Bucs. This will be Mahomes second AFC offensive player award during the 2022 season and his ninth AFC offensive player award in his NFL career.

Both the Chief’s offensive and defense played well during Week 4’s game. And while the Chief’s offense was on fire, the Raiders’ offensive was lacking.


Las Vegas Raiders (1-3)

The Raiders are also coming into Monday night’s game off a win. The Raiders played the Broncos in Week 4 and were able to pull out a win with a final score of 32-23.

The Raider’s defense carried most of the weight throughout the game. During the second quarter, Amik Roberston stunned fans as he was able to recover a fumble and score a touchdown.

Although defense was a huge contributor to the outcome of the game, Josh Jacobs also helped the Raiders come out on top. The running back had two touchdowns and a total of 144 yards. As a whole, the Raiders played well despite QB Derek Carr struggling throughout most of the game.
