AFC West Week 5 preview and predictions: Chargers topple Broncos
By Brad Weiss
Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders (London)
The time has finally come for the Oakland Raiders to take on their old friend, as the team will battle it out against the Chicago Bears in London this Sunday. That old friend is Khalil Mack, the generational talent who the team traded away prior to the 2018 NFL season for a bunch of draft picks.
While the Raiders got a solid player in Josh Jacobs with the Bears pick this past April, there is no comparing what Mack meant to this franchise. On Sunday, the Raiders will face a Bears team that has Mack, but could be without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, as well as star linebacker Roquan Smith.
The loss of Trubisky will not matter much, as backup Chase Daniel has more than enough talent in his right arm to win NFL games. If the Raiders play like they did last Sunday, they have a legitimate shot at beating the Bears, but Kolton Miller and the rest of the Raiders offensive line will have to be at their best against one of the better rushes in the league.
