Las Vegas Raiders: 2021 season game-by-game predictions
Week 13 – vs. Washington Football Team: Win
The Washington Football team looks very similar to the Broncos on paper, with a very stout defense and plenty of playmakers on offense. But what may keep them down is the inconsistent play of the quarterback, as they are rolling with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center in 2021.
The Raiders felt the sting of Fitzmagic last season when he was a member of the Dolphins, but a whole season of him will result in a few high turnover games, and the Raiders will be the beneficiary of one of those sloppy games. Derek Carr and the offense will do just enough, and with the help of some turnovers, the team rebounds from the loss in Dallas.
Sitting with seven wins, a legitimate winning season is in the Raiders crosshairs, and it will be up to them to finish out the last five games on the slate on a high note. They were not able to do that the last two seasons, so hopefully that can be the case in 2021.
