3. Forcing the Chiefs to punt
Believe it or not, the Las Vegas Raiders defense managed to force the Chiefs to punt late in the second half, and it seemed to change everything. Not only was that evident by the way that the Raiders would go on to score, (more on that later,) but also by the fact that this was the final lead change of the entire game.
The Raiders even got a sack on Mahones for good measure before they finally forced his team to punt the ball away. In the end, it was one of the first times that the defense has shown any life all season, and it is something that needs to continue if the Raiders are going to have any chance of making it to the playoffs.
