The last time the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders met, it ended with the Raiders handing the Chiefs their only loss of the season, 40-32. Now, just a few weeks later on Sunday Night Football, Kansas City is looking to avenge that loss.
Despite the Raiders putting up 40 points on the Chiefs and coming out on top, oddsmakers aren’t convinced in their ability to hang with the defending champs. As of Saturday, the Chiefs are favored by more than a touchdown over Las Vegas.
