Predicting the Las Vegas Raiders 2021 season game-by-game
Week 12 at Dallas Cowboys (Thanksgiving Day)
Get your turkey, stuffing, and cornbread ready, as the Las Vegas Raiders will be on full display during Thanksgiving Day against the Dallas Cowboys. This offseason, the Cowboys did the right thing by locking up Dak Prescott for the foreseeable future, and this COwboys team has enough talent to win the NFC East in 2021.
However, the Raiders will be coming off a solid victory in this one but will have to travel on a short week to take on the Cowboys. Playing inside their home stadium, the Cowboys should be able to do just enough to beat the Raiders, but the Silver and Black show the country that they could be a playoff team this season.
Las Vegas is going to have to pound the ball with Jacobs to keep this one close, and they do just that, hanging in until late in the second half. Prescott can find CeeDee Lamb late for a score, but heading back home to play another NFC East team with extra rest will do the Silver and Black good.
Prediction: Cowboys 24, Raiders 20
