Karl Joseph continues to be a key player in the Raiders secondary. He had four tackles and one pass defended. If you watch the Raiders play you can see that Karl Joseph is a ball hawk who is near the ball for almost every play. Joseph did his part in the Raiders huge win over the first place chiefs.

Bruce Irvin also played a big-time role in the Raiders victory over the Chiefs. He was assigned to keeping All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce in check. Irvin did his part by roughing up Kelce and not allowing him to get on track for most of the game.
