Who goes head-to-head tonight on Sunday Night Football in Week 10? It’s an AFC West showdown as the Kansas City Chiefs (5-4) head to Allegiant Stadium to take on the Las Vegas Raiders (5-3). The Chiefs secured a much-needed victory in Week 9 over the Packers. Can they keep the momentum going and challenge their division rivals in Week 10?

What to expect from tonight’s Chiefs vs. Raiders game?
The Chiefs have somewhat bounced back from their bad 2-3 start, but they’ve caught some breaks along the way. However, in Sunday Night Football tonight, they’ll need to show what team they are against a division rival primed to take advantage in the division.
Raiders look to bounce back
Week 9’s loss to the New York Giants was disappointing as Las Vegas was doing well and coming off of a bye week. Some unfortunate situations have unfolded for former members of the organization. Yet, the ones still there have galvanized into a winning team.
The addition of WR DeSean Jackson fills the need for speed created by the release of Henry Ruggs III. Meanwhile, QB Derek Carr and RB Josh Jacobs attempt to slice up one of the worst defenses in the league that possibly began turning a corner in Week 9. If Kansas City continues their trend of not running the football, the Raiders need to dial up the pressure as they have and get Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes uncomfortable.
What are the Chiefs doing?
Kansas City’s refusal to incorporate the run — specifically against teams who are not good at defending it — is highly confusing. The offense is not performing as they have from years past. The chunk plays are missing, the points per game are down, and things aren’t right. If the Chiefs continue to play how they’ve been, there are not many avenues for them to find a way to win in Sunday Night Football tonight.
The Raiders are currently giving up 133.5 rushing yards per game. The Chiefs need to get their RBs going, develop the play-action passes, and watch the offense bloom. If the defense is genuinely coming around and not just a product of playing against Jordan Love, this can be the game to figure things out on offense. But that means changing things up. I predict the Raiders will win a close game at home, which could be a significant factor in final playoff seeding.
Prediction: Raiders 31, Chiefs 27
