Predicting the Las Vegas Raiders 2021 season game-by-game
Week 7 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Raiders return to ALlegiant Stadium in a big way in Week 7, as they play host to Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2021, the Eagles could be a team that struggles big time, as we still do not know what Hurts will bring at the NFL level, and the NFC East is so shaky from year to year.
Playing in front of a rabid crowd inside Allegiant Stadium, the Raiders beat the Eagles pretty soundly, cruising to one of their easier wins of the season. Hurts struggles against the Raiders defense in this one, and Josh Jacobs runs wild, racking up nearly 200 yards of total offense against this Eagles defense.
With the win, the Raiders go into their bye week with a winning record and looking ahead, there are definitely some winnable games on the horizon. For the Silver and Black, the key at this point is to get healthy and begin their ten-game quest to finally locking down a playoff spot for the first time in five years.
Prediction: Raiders 30, Eagles 17
