The Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs both got off to hot starts at 2-0, but only one has continued that success and remained undefeated. You guessed it, the defending Super Bowl Champion Chiefs are 4-0 and looking as dominant as ever, while the Raiders have dropped to 2-2.

The two division rivals will face off in Week 5, as the Raiders travel to Kansas City. Here is what our experts think will occur in this AFC West matchup.
