Week 10 is gone and the division did pretty bad all except the Chiefs. It seems that every team was exposed and their weaknesses were front and center. No Bueno for the start of the playoff push.
Talk about a shit show, WOW! This game was a flat out disgrace. Derek Carr was 25 of 35 (71.4%) for 261 yards and 2 touchdowns with a interceptions he was also the leading rusher on the team with 3 carries for 18 yards, yes, you did read that correctly. Bryan Edwards had 3 receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 2 tackles for loss. Daniel Carlson was 2 for 2 on extra points. It seems that the Raiders have started their yearly collapse and it is a shame after another great start to the season.
From worse to first in 3 weeks. The Chiefs are on a roll and boy did their passing game come to life. Patrick Mahomes was 35 of 50 (70%) for 406 yards and 5 touchdowns. Darrell Williams had 11 carries for 43 yards with 9 receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. Travis Kelce had 8 receptions for 119 yards. The defense had 2 sacks and 5 tackles for loss with a interception. Harrison Butker was 2 for 3 on fieldgoals and 5 for 5 on extra points. This was a flat out massacre of the Raiders in their house.
The Chargers defense was on the field for 36 plus minutes, NO BUENO! The worse part was watching the Vikings run the last 4:36 off the clock on a 10 play drive to win the game. Justin Herbert was 20 of 34 (58.8%) for 195 yards with a touchdown and a interception. Austin Ekeler had 11 carries for 44 yards with 3 receptions for 15 yards and a touchdown. Keenan Allen had 8 receptions for 98 yards. The defense had 2 sacks and 5 tackles for loss. Dustin Hopkin was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 2 for 2 on extra points. The Chargers have some work to do if they are going to make a playoff push.
This is a true Jekyll and Hyde team. Week to week you just don’t know what you are going to get. Teddy Bridgewater was 22 of 36 (61.1%) for 226 yards. Javonte Williams had 8 carries for 48 yards. Albert Okwuegbunam had 3 receptions for 77 yards. The defense had 2 sacks and 5 tackles for loss with a interception. Brandon McManus was 2 for 3 on fieldgoals and 1 for 1 on extra points. You can’t give up 216 yards on the ground and expect to win.
