The 2022 NFL season is underway and the Week 5 schedule is full of exciting showdowns. One of the more interesting matchups is an AFC West clash between the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

The Raiders finally overcame their slow start to the year by earning their first win in Week 4. A 32-23 defeat of the Denver Broncos has the season back on track. Meanwhile, the Chiefs check in at 3-1 on the year and are coming off a thrilling 41-31 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.

Can Las Vegas get the better of the Arrowhead Stadium crowd on Monday night? Or will Kansas City keep up its dominance within the division?

Here's what projection models and experts across the industry have to say about the Raiders vs Chiefs Week 5 matchup.

There's simply no one backing head coach Josh McDaniel's team this week. All four projection models picked Kansas City to win, as did each of the 20 experts polled.

Not all hope is lost for the Raiders as they did march into Arrowhead Stadium and beat the Chiefs during the 2020 NFL season. Quarterback Derek Carr threw for 347 yards and 3 touchdowns in that game, so he'll need to ball out if there's any chance for an upset win.

Expect the Chiefs to remain atop the AFC West by getting the job done at home.
