If you went into Sunday Night Football expecting a high scoring game, you weren’t disappointed. The Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs made sure to put as many points on the scoreboard as they could. However, the Silver and Black couldn’t sweep the Chiefs and dropped their fourth game of the season. The Raiders Didn’t Waste Anytime Getting Down The Field To Start The Game Fast. On The First Drive Of The Game The Raiders Had A Mixture Of The Run & Pass And Kept It Balance To Score On The First Drive Of The Game.
You Win Some You Lose Some And This Is A Tough Loss But I Am Proud Of This Team Because This Team Played To The End. The Offense Played So Well To Go Blow For Blow With The Superbowl Champs To Put Up 31 points on them. Down 14-7 in the second quarter, the Chiefs put together a 73-yard drive that ended in a three-yard rushing touchdown by running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Afterward, Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed a 35-yard field goal to make the score 17-14.
In the first half, the Raiders only punted once and that was towards the end of the second quarter. In an effort to score before halftime, quarterback Patrick Mahomes targeted Demarcus Robinson, but cornerback Trayvon Mullen intercepted the pass To End The First Half Of The Game.
In The Second Half In My Opinion Raiders HC Went A Bit Conservative To Start The Half Knowing The Raiders Defense Have Been On The field Majority Of The 3rd Qtr And To Get a 3 & Out Was Not A Great Start For The Raiders. The Defense Did Their Job Getting Back Off The Field For Our Offense To Get back out there and march down the Field but it as some drops by Alec Ingold On That Drive That Stall Us. The Offense Did Bounce Back In The Forth Qtr Moving The Ball To Get In The Endzone With A Jason Witten Touchdown with under 2 minutes left in the game.
This Is Where I Get Serious About This Game Because This Where I Think DC Paul Gunther Needs To Be Fired Because The Raiders Offense Put Us In A Position To Win This Game Taking The Lead And Paul Gunther Goes Soft On The Final Drive Of The Game And The It Was’nt The right Scheme for us to take that approach against a chiefs team that thrives off drive like this. Patrick Mahomes & Derek Carr Played A Sensational Games But This Defense Lost Us This Game And It A Tough Pill To Swallow But The Raiders Will Bounce Back And Get Ready To Go On The Road To Atlanta To Play On The Falcons On Sunday.
