On the Raiders podcast with Barbara:
#1 Barbara how much of an indicator was the Las Vegas Raiders (3-2) game with the Buffalo Bills (4-0) in week 4 when they lost by just a touchdown against a then 3-0 team that they would go onto do well against a tough Kansas City Chiefs (4-1) team in week 5.
#2 How much credit does this Raiders defense deserve after shutting out the Chiefs in the third quarter and then quarterback Derek Carr and the offense went to work in the fourth quarter and scored 16 points for insurance points and the 40-32 win.
#3 Carr’s line for Sunday in a great afternoon throwing for 347 yards and three touchdowns the Chiefs no doubt have a Super Bowl caliber pass rush and that speaks to the Raiders offensive line.
#4 The Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was no slouch either he threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns it was just that the Raiders defense was able to control more the of the Chiefs offense in the second half and the Raiders had a successful offense that took advantage to block for Carr and gave him time to throw.
#5 The Raiders have a bye next Sunday before they play their next game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sun Oct 25th as this will be a quick month for the Raiders.
