Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Raiders fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

I probably don’t need to tell you that the Las Vegas Raiders were mighty impressive in their 37-12 Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos. You were there. You saw it. You probably talked to your friends about it, but they probably didn’t care, which is why you should try talking to us about it by signing up for SB Nation Reacts.

That win was the Raiders third in a row, and as a result of the winning streak, fan confidence couldn’t be higher. Literally, it couldn’t be higher.

According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100% of responding Raiders fans said they are confident about the team’s direction. It’s the second-straight week that Raiders fans have reported feeling that way.

But now comes the real test: A Sunday night showdown against the reigning Super Bowl champs, the Kansas City Chiefs. The bad news for the Raiders is that the Chiefs are a blistering 8-1. The good news for the Raiders is that the “1” in the Chiefs record came against Vegas.

Still, according to NFL fans polled by SB Nation Reacts, Kansas City is expected to get their revenge.

But even though NFL fans expect the Raiders to lose, they’re still highly looking forward to the game. When fans were asked which game they were most looking forward to this week, the AFC West showdown finished in second place — and tops among the Sunday and Monday games.

I think it’s safe to say that we can expect fireworks. Fireworks that you should tell us about by signing up to vote in the Reacts surveys.
