Mike McDaniel’s team has started the season 6-3 before they had a week off following their international battle with the Kansas City Chiefs in Germany. A win could keep them among the top teams in the conference, but there will still be doubts about their potential until they defeat a winning team.
Las Vegas has won their last two matchups since firing head coach Josh McDaniels. In his place, Antonio Pierce has done a solid job of getting his players to buy in. Even wide receiver Davante Adams, who was clearly upset by the end of McDaniels’ tenure, is feeling and looking better.
