When the Kansas City Chiefs played host to the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14, the Raiders decided to be a bit disrespectful during pregame on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Before the game started, Las Vegas players huddled on the Chiefs logo at midfield, a sign of disrespect to the home team that’s also a division rival.

The irony of the Raiders’ taunting attempt was what ensued. Las Vegas ended their trip to Kansas City with what ended up being a 48-9 blowout loss to the defending AFC champions.
