Today's Raiders vs Chiefs live stream has two AFC West teams looking to build off big wins last week. Las Vegas is going into Arrowhead after blowing out the Chargers 63-21, while Kansas City returns home after a 27-17 win over the Patriots. Now these division rivals meet to see who can keep the momentum going in this Christmas Day NFL live stream.

 As one would assume, the Raiders (6-8) had everything going for them in that win over the Chargers. Quarterback Aidan O’Connell had the best start of his young career. The rookie fourth-rounder threw for 248 yards and four touchdowns while posting a 120.7 passer rating. Running backs Zamir White, Ameer Abdullah and Brandon Bolden combined for 126 yards on 25 carries, while wideout Davante Adams caught eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. Las Vegas’ defense also came up with five takeaways.

With a win at Arrowhead, the Raiders would get back over .500 with interim head coach Antonio Pierce and keep their very slim playoff hopes alive.  

The Chiefs (9-5) will look to repeat their Week 12 performance against the Raiders. Kansas City took that game in Vegas, 31-17. Patrick Mahomes put up some of his best numbers of the season throwing for 298 yards and two touchdowns in the win for a 122.8 passer rating. It’s also the last time this season the two-time MVP eclipsed the 100-passer rating mark.

Mahomes is coming off another solid game last week against the Patriots, helping the Chiefs to a 27-17 win at Foxboro. Mahomes posted a 92.7 passer rating with two touchdowns to help snap a brief two-game skid for Kansas City. Now they go for their first back-to-back wins since Weeks 6 and 7 of this season.

DraftKings has the Chiefs as big 11-point favorites against the Raiders. The over/under is set at 40.5 points. 

Raiders vs Chiefs Inactives:

Will Taylor Swift attend Raiders vs Chiefs? 

With nothing scheduled for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour until after the new year, we know that TayTay has some free time on her schedule. Time for embracing her two new passions; Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce and the game of football.

It seems that Swift will be at Arrowhead for this Christmas day kickoff between the Raiders and Chiefs. Kelce hinted at the two being together last week when asked about his plans for the holiday by People magazine. 

The Chiefs are now 5-2 when Swift is in attendance.
