4. Las Vegas Raiders
The Chiefs are likely going to win this weekend’s matchup with the Raiders, fueled by a need to redeem themselves and the pressure of playing in primetime. However, that does not diminish the Raiders possibility of upsetting the defending champs for a second time this season.
The Raiders are offensively built to beat the Chiefs. They have the third-most time consuming drives on average, second-fewest interceptions (second only to the Chiefs), the second-highest scoring percentage, and the third-lowest scoring percentage allowed. They attempt the seventh most rushing plays, have the ninth most rushing yards, and have gotten 67 first downs on the ground.
However, they are not perfectly built to beat the Chiefs all around. They allow the fourth most yards per pass and are among the NFL’s worst in interceptions and second worst in total turnovers forced. They are third on most plays per drive allowed and second in most yards per drive allowed. They’ve also allowed the most points per drive.
