Through 3 Quarters
The last time the Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs met, the matchup was decided by 31 points, but it sure doesn't look like the final will end up so one-sided this time. Kansas City and Las Vegas are deadlocked at 24-24 after three quarters, promising an exciting conclusion.
The Chiefs have been riding high on the performance of QB Patrick Mahomes, who has passed for one TD and 259 yards on 31 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. The Raiders have enjoyed the tag-team combination of QB Derek Carr and WR Henry Ruggs III. The former has passed for three TDs and 297 yards on 24 attempts, while the latter has caught two passes for one TD and 118 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Ruggs III's 72-yard TD reception down the right side of the field in the second quarter.

Las Vegas and the Kansas City Chiefs will face off in an AFC West battle at 1 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium. The Raiders have some work to do to even out the 1-7 series between these two since October of 2016, but a win here would be a good start.
Las Vegas came within a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills this past Sunday, but they wound up with a 30-23 loss. The losing side was boosted by QB Derek Carr, who passed for two TDs and 311 yards on 44 attempts. That was the first 300+ yard effort for Carr this season.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between Kansas City and the New England Patriots this past Monday was still a pretty decisive one as Kansas City wrapped it up with a 26-10 victory at home.
