The Las Vegas Raiders are an interesting team to watch these days.

Just two weeks ago, they played the Minnesota Vikings in arguably the most boring matchup of the season—a 3-0 laugher in which Vegas failed to score a single point (even with overtime) and one that Davante Adams called "embarrassing." One week later, they rolled over the Los Angeles Chargers with 63 total points—a total that felt like it was making up for the previous week.

Since Antonio Pierce donned the mantle of interim head coach, what you cannot say about the Raiders is that they're uninteresting. Win or lose, they at least seem more competitive on a game-by-game basis than they were before, and the mercurial nature of their productivity shows that it's hard to pinpoint how they might look week to week.

Can they rise up and take out the Kansas City Chiefs after doing the same with the Chargers? Are the Raiders going to roll over against the Chiefs given there's nothing to play for this season? We'll find out later this week.

Raiders vs Chiefs game time

It's an odd time and day for all parties involved this week—fans included. Everyone is going to have to stop their typical Christmas/holiday schedule in order to accommodate the demands of the NFL this year. That's because the Chiefs are hosting the Raiders at 12:00 p.m. C.T. on Monday—literally Christmas Day.

Raiders vs Chiefs location

The Chiefs will host the Raiders for their annual matchup at Arrowhead after already taking care of business on the road at Allegiant Stadium (where Patrick Mahomes is 4-0 by the way). The Chiefs are coming off of a road victory over the New England Patriots in Week 15 and hope to bring that momentum back with them for a second straight win after having lost two consecutive.

Raiders vs Chiefs odds

The Chiefs have already opened as 10-point favorites against the visiting Raiders. Some of that has to do with playing in their home environs but the truth is that having a very decisive series edge in the last decade has more to do with it. The Raiders are once again picking somewhere in the top half of the draft while K.C., is eyeing another Super Bowl run.

Raiders vs Chiefs series history

The Chiefs extended their all-time series lead against the Raiders to 73-54-2 with a win already this season to open the season series at Allegiant Stadium. Now they will hope to complete the sweep with a win at home. With 11 wins in the last 12 matchups, it makes them feel like the safe bet here.
