The Raiders arrived to Kansas City as 11-point underdogs back in Week 5. That must have made them mad.
Despite falling behind 14-3 early in the 2nd quarter and then 21-10 in the middle of that period, Vegas went on to beat the Chiefs 40-32 at their place. And K.C. needed a TD and 2-point conversion late in the 4th quarter to make it that close.
The Raiders racked up 490 yards in that game: 144 on the ground and 346 in the air. Derek Carr outdueled Patrick Mahomes on 12 fewer pass attempts, hitting 3 different pass-catchers for scores along the way. Rookie Henry Ruggs posted -- really -- his only fantasy-relevant game of the season so far.
Carr enters the rematch, though, off 3 straight games of 25 pass attempts or fewer.
The Chiefs come off a bye, which Andy Reid-coached teams have tended to do quite well. Reid has gone 18-3 career after the bye; 14-7 against the spread.
K.C. is the heavy favorite once again. This time it’s by 7.5 points, which is up 1 from where it opened.
