In what started as a sign of disrespect by the Raiders, the script completely flipped. As the Raiders gathered by the Arrowhead logo, the Chiefs took that personal, and it showed on the scored board.
Kansas City went up 35-0 to start the game, just before giving the Raiders a field goal at the half. I’m sure looking back, the Las Vegas Raiders may regret doing what they did.
Are these the Chiefs of old, or are the Raiders just another poor opponent the Chiefs have played lately? Both can be correct and based on this last game, both look to be correct. Here is how the Chiefs walked away with a huge win.
Chiefs do no wrong in big win over Raiders
Kansas City did everything right against the Raiders. However, there was one thing that they did, that was more important than anything else. The Chiefs created turnovers something they have done well all year.
What have they not done as of late, well that would be scoring after those turnovers, which they did today. Chiefs fans should be very proud of this team, as they have done nothing but battle back from adversity.
The Chiefs started the game on defense with their heads on a swivel and forced a fumble on the first play, which was returned for a touchdown by Mike Hughes. It really does not get much better than that. While we are on that topic, Mike Hughes played great in this game, with a fumble recovery and a forced fumble against the Raiders.
The Chiefs defense is continuing their hot streak and looking better than ever. Kansas City holds the Raiders to nine points while creating turnovers and getting pressure on the quarterback.
Let’s not forget the offense, who is now hotting their stride. While the defense has shown up the last few weeks, the offense has struggled, something that is usually flipped for this team.
The offense was able to score 48 points, yes you read that right. They scored nearly 50 points at home against a divisional rival, and it really does not get much better than that. This team is destined to return to the Super Bowl after seeing their recent play.
