Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders: Game preview and prediction
By Nick Ellis
The Oakland Raiders head to London this week to take on Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears in a Week 5 matchup.
The Raiders are coming off an impressive victory over the Indianapolis Colts, extending their record to 2-2 after the first quarter of the season. The Bears are a nightmare matchup for the Raiders, but a victory here would make the Raiders a legitimate playoff threat after back to back victories over playoff teams from a season ago.
The Bears are currently 3-1, playing against two common opponents as the Raiders in the Broncos and the Vikings. Both teams defeated Denver, but the Raiders did it in a much more impressive fashion. On the other, the Raiders were dominated by the Vikings, a team that the Bears handled fairly easy.
This Week 5 matchup is highlighted by the storyline of Khalil Mack facing his former team, but let’s take a look at what else goes into this game in London.
