The Las Vegas Raiders (5-6) return home to Allegiant Stadium this week to take on their arch-AFC West Rivals, the World Champion Kansas City Chiefs (7-3).
After the performance that the Silver and Black had in a loss at Miami this past weekend, the Raiders are ready to get back on the field and get this franchise back to their winning ways.
In the latest episode of the Las Vegas Raiders Insider Podcast, we reflect on that loss to the Fish and look ahead to this weekend's tilt with the Chiefs.

Coach Antonio Pierce discussed how he used to internalize a loss as a player and not let it linger into the next game.
"Yeah, I mean, it's hard because especially you have five hours to sit on a plane and think about it. First of all, I think you have to reflect on what you did well. And then what can you correct? What were the mistakes? Why did you make that mistake? And to be honest, it's the 24-hour rule. And for us, it's even shorter, because we'll be on the practice field tomorrow. I told our guys to flush it out of their system. Just like we embrace wins, we embrace the losses and learn from them. And we're doing that. You would wish this journey for myself and the team that we would be undefeated, but that's not going to happen. I'm a realist. But more importantly, you get back to it. It's the National Football League, man. Damn, that was a good football team. They lost to two defending Super Bowl Champions in the Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles, so we knew we were up to the challenge, but there was no excuse, there were no mistakes. Guys came out fresh, we were ready to go. Did we complain about the heat? No. Did we complain about the travel? No. Guys strapped up and played and we went out there and we gave ourselves an opportunity in the fourth quarter three times to either tie the game or win it, and it just didn't go our way."
The Silver and Black will return home next week to celebrate Thanksgiving and take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs, on Sunday, November. 26, at 4:25 p.m. EST/1:25 p.m. PST.
