Everyone knew that it was not going to end well for the Las Vegas Raiders when they gathered on the Chiefs logo prior to the game. At that moment, they already messed up, and the game hadn’t even started yet. Kansas City took that to heart, thus elevating their play on both sides of the ball.

The Chiefs name has been all-around the national media as of late for their good play. However, not for the reasons you would think. They have been known in the past for their amazing offense, and bad defense.

Now, those traits are flipped as of the last five or six weeks. Kansas City is taking their game to the next level now. and they did that against the Las Vegas Raiders, especially on offense.

Chiefs offense dominates by way of great performances

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB:

The second-year running back has had a bit of a roller-coaster season. When reflecting back on his rookie season, some would say he is definitely having a sophomore slump. Between the fumbles this year, and the injuries, it is safe to say that it has been a bit of a disappointment.

While Edwards-Helaire only had 37 rushing yards, he made due with his 10 carries. With two rushing touchdowns on the game, the starting running back was able to help the Chiefs build on their lead, looking like rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Tyreek Hill, WR:

The fastest guy in football played better than what the stat sheet will show you against the Raiders. As he only finished with 76 yards and four catches, he was still able to get open when Patrick Mahomes needed him most. The speed of Hill is what opened up the play-action game, along with the run game.

Derrick Gore, RB:

The former practice squad player was able to get some amazing production in what small time he had on the field. With the score being very lopsided, Andy Reid allowed Derrick Gore to get some garbage time snaps. However, that is exactly the opposite of what it was to Derrick Gore. With nine carries on the day, Gore finished with a touchdown and 66 yards on a big run he was able to break loose.
