The Las Vegas Raiders are 5-3 and tied for the AFC West lead with nine games to go in the 2021 season. However, after the loss to the 3-6 New York Giants last Sunday, the buzz around them making that push has died down.
In this week’s SB Nation Reacts, we see Raiders’ fans had a massive drop in confidence in their football team. The fall has the Raider Nation with around 50 percent confidence in the team at this moment. It makes complete sense after a loss on the road to a team with a losing record.
The Raiders will be facing the Kansas City Chiefs this week, hoping to go to 2-1 in the division. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Chiefs are favored at -2.5 over the Raiders, with bookies expecting a Chiefs victory.
For the sake of Raider Nation, let us hope that is not true and the silver and black can bounce back and get a vast division victory. The AFC is up for grabs. The Raiders just have to take it.
