The Kansas City Chiefs are in the midst of a very tough schedule with the Las Vegas Raiders coming up this Sunday night, and the Dallas Cowboys next week. For now, we have to focus on the Raiders, a team that beat the Chiefs once last year.

The Chiefs only lost two games in the regular season last year, three in total to be exact. The Raiders with one of those wins is a team designed to beat Kansas City.

With the young weapons they have, they are not a team to gloss over. The Las Vegas Raiders started the season strong, and are still a tough team to beat despite their struggles as of late.

Even with their struggles, they are a top offense in the league. Therefore, they have some players the Chiefs need to watch for on that side of the ball.

Three Raiders players to watch for on offense for the Chiefs

Josh Jacobs, RB:

The young running back is not doing much work so far this season, especially considering the injury problems he has had. He is part of a dynamic duo in the backfield, on a team that is fifth in the NFL in rushing yards with 715. While Jacobs only has 280 rushing yards so far this season, he is still a running back that can get hot at any moment.

Kenyan Drake, RB:

Currently listed as the backup running back, many people would argue he is the better back this season. Kenyan Drake has always had high potential, and he has shown even more flashes of that this year. With 190 rushing yards and 257 receiving yards, Kenyan Drake is doing it on offense any way he can.

Hunter Renfrow, WR:

Maybe one of the most slept on receivers in the league, Hunter Renfrow has been getting it done through the air. With the third-most receiving yards on the team with 4448, Renfrow’s usage will only go up with the release of receiver Henry Ruggs. The Chiefs will need to lock in against this slot receiver.

While the Raiders have five wins just like the Chiefs, they do have great pieces on offense. We know that the Chiefs defense has struggled all year, and these guys can hurt Kansas City if not locked in.
