Raiders Vs. Chiefs Live Game Updates, Analysis

The Las Vegas Raiders (5-6) are hosting their AFC West arch-rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs (7-3), and we have the up-to-the-minute updates, analysis and highlights.

LAS VEGAS, Nev.--The optimistic and new-look Las Vegas Raiders (5-6) come into this game against their AFC West arch-rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs (7-3), concerned that they might not have the roster to upset Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and Travis Kelce.

Superstar defensive end Maxx Crosby and left tackle Kolton Miller both have been injured and already facing an unfavorable situation against the Chiefs; both men's injuries put them in an even more difficult situation.

Remember the rule of five: The game is over if the Raiders win that key statistical battle. It concerns sacks and turnovers for those who don't remember it. If the Raiders have three sacks and give up two, they are plus one. They are plus three if they get four turnovers and give up only one. That would give them a plus-four for the day. They want to get to a plus-five ratio every game. On average, teams that reach the rule of five scenarios win 91 percent of their NFL games.
