Las Vegas Raiders Look to Play Spoiler to the Chiefs in 2020
The Las Vegas Raiders. You almost have to say it three times in a row just to make sure it's real. Well, it's 2020 and Mark Davis' three-decade long dream of having his family's team play in a city in which they are wanted, is now a reality.
2020 will be Jon Gruden's third season back with the Raiders. In 2018 they finished 4-12 and in 2019 finished 7-9.
The Raiders are oozing optimism in 2020 and they are the AFC West team best positioned to battle the Chiefs for the division title. They return their starting quarterback in Derek Carr, and drafted two new wide receivers to help their struggling offense: Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards.
One scheduling oddity for the Raiders in 2020; they will play six games with a 10am Pacific/ 12pm Central kickoff time, which is a high number of early kickoffs for a West Coast team.
