Kansas City at Las Vegas Game Preview
Why Kansas City Will Win
Can the turnovers flip to the other side?
Kansas City was having massive giveaway problems for weeks – with 19 in seven games – and then it got through the Green Bay game clean, was a +2 in turnover margin, and it got the big win.
Meanwhile, Las Vegas turned it over three times and lost to the Giants despite a big day from the defense.
The air show is there at Kansas City somewhere, but in this it will likely be about the running game. The Vegas defensive front is among the worst in the league at holding up to ground attacks – allowing 100 yards or more to everyone but Pittsburgh – and the Chiefs will need it because …
Why Las Vegas Will Win
It’s not like defenses using a two-high safety coverage scheme is anything out of the ordinary – Kansas City is just not playing well.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chief attack had major turnover issues before last week, but it’s not like it’s a one week fix.
All of a sudden, the big plays have gone bye-bye, Mahomes is forcing things and his timing is off, and now it all goes against a Vegas secondary that doesn’t give up the deep shot.
And yes, Las Vegas isn’t great against the run. That’s okay, Kansas City hasn’t been all that great on the ground.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s okay to say it – even after a two-game winning streak – Kansas City isn’t very good right now.
The D was able to save the day against a Packer team missing its guy and against a banged up New York Giant squad, but The Raider O should be able to throw enough to get everyone out of its shell.
At home in a rivalry game, this should be a bit of a shootout with Mahomes rolling in the second half, but the Raiders will pull out a thriller after last week’s disappointment to New York.
