The Chiefs and Raiders check in with the 3rd-highest over/under of Week 10 … which is less than we’ve come to expect from this matchup.
Last year’s 2 meetings produced 72 and 66 points. Both teams topped 30 in each.
This year’s offenses arrive just 16th (Las Vegas) and 15th (Kansas City) in scoring, but they rank 6th and 7th, respectively, in total yards.
Patrick Mahomes reached 340 yards in both 2020 contests and has done so in 3 of his past 4 meetings with Vegas. He has also tossed 2+ TD passes in 5 of 6 lifetime clashes. Mahomes would normally look like a lock for production in that range, but he arrives with just 2 total TDs over his past 3 games (both passing), with a mere 215.7 passing yards per game over that span.
Derek Carr, meanwhile, arrives with more passing yards -- despite throwing 50 fewer passes while playing 1 fewer game. Carr also posted big numbers in both 2020 meetings, completing 72.6% of his throws across the 2 games and completing 3 TD passes in each. Whereas Mahomes has struggled recently, Carr has thrown for 296+ yards in each of his past 3 contests.
Do we finally get the Chiefs rebound game we’ve been waiting for? Do we get another shootout between these division rivals? Or will we get the 5th straight under on K.C.’s game total? The past 3 of those have come in WAY under.
