What to watch for

The Raiders are gearing up for Monday Night Football and the biggest challenge will be limiting a crafty Patrick Mahomes, who is a career 7-1 against the Raiders. The sixth-year QB is coming off a dominating 41-31 primetime win over the Buccaneers, where he showcased his strong connection to tight end Travis Kelce, throwing him nine passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. Mahomes threw two more touchdowns to tight end Jody Fortson and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, while connecting with eight different receivers on the night. The quarterback also added 34 yards on the ground to the Chiefs' 189 total rushing yards.

"I have a lot of respect for Patrick in terms of how he came into the league, how much he's improved over time," defensive coordinator Patrick Graham said Tuesday. "I've gone against him, I think, twice and it's just amazing the growth you've seen over the years."

The Chiefs lead the all-time regular season series against the Raiders, 68-53-2, dating back to 1960. Kansas City took both games against Raiders in last season's divisional matchups, and has won four of the last five matchups between the two teams.
