In a pivotal Week 12 showdown, the Las Vegas Raiders are set to host the Kansas City Chiefs in what promises to be a gripping contest. As they gear up for this crucial face-off, both teams are seeking redemption after stumbling against formidable opponents in Week 11.
The Raiders, currently standing at 5-6, are coming off a narrow defeat to the Miami Dolphins. Despite the loss, their performance was notably strong, especially considering the Dolphins' reputation as one of the most formidable offenses in the league this year.
Las Vegas is now poised to bounce back and is eyeing a prime opportunity against a Chiefs team that showed vulnerabilities in their recent clash with the Philadelphia Eagles. With the Chiefs appearing less invincible, the Raiders might just have the perfect timing to overcome the powerhouse led by Patrick Mahomes.
Kansas City, with a 7-3 record, is entering this matchup under the guidance of Andy Reid. After their unexpected slip-up against the Eagles, the Chiefs are determined to demonstrate that the setback was merely an anomaly. They're expected to face a Raiders squad that, on paper, they should overpower.
However, Kansas City's offense, particularly pass catchers like Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, and Travis Kelce, needs to tighten up their game, avoiding crucial drops and fumbles that have plagued them recently.
The Week 12 Raiders vs. Chiefs game, which promises intense gridiron action, is scheduled as follows:
- Livestream available on FuboTV and DAZN
- Televised on CBS
- Kickoff at 4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 26, 2023
- Venue: Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, Nevada

Four players – Marcus Epps, Kolton Miller, Robert Spillane, and Roderic Teamer – are questionable, having missed significant practice time this week. Additionally, star defensive end Maxx Crosby is doubtful due to a knee issue, having not practiced all week.

Other players like Donovan Smith, L'Jarius Sneed, Joshua Williams, and Blaine Gabbert are on Kansas City's injury report but are expected to be available for Sunday's game.
This matchup promises high stakes and high drama, with both teams eager to assert their dominance in the league and rebound from their Week 11 setbacks.
