The NFL has a heck of a prime time schedule this week, and Sunday wraps up with a big one. The Las Vegas Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs in a Week 11 rematch of the Raiders upset at Arrowhead. The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET and will broadcast on NBC.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on the NBC Sports Live. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream Sunday Night Football this week.
The Chiefs opened as a touchdown favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and we’ve seen the line climb up to eight points in the week since. The point total is installed at 56.5, which is just a shade below the 57 points for Cardinals-Seahawks that led things this week. This game is a rematch of the Raiders 40-32 win in Week 5. People expect points.
For the season, the Chiefs have been the clearly better team. Kansas City ranks 4th overall in total DVOA, including 1st on offense, 14th on defense, and 22nd on special teams. Las Vegas ranks 14th overall, including 9th on offense, 21st on defense, and 16th on special teams.
The Chiefs drew first blood in Week 5, taking a 14-3 lead early in the second quarter. But the Raiders would not back down. They countered and took the lead in the second quarter and again in the fourth quarter. They didn’t run away with it, but some big plays midway through the fourth quarter iced that one.
The Raiders cannot move into a tie or past the Chiefs with a win this week, but they would move to within a game of them and secure the tiebreaker with both head-to-head wins. This is a huge game for both teams.
