Las Vegas Raiders: 2021 season game-by-game predictions
Week 7 – vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Win
Much like the Bears game, the Raiders go into a matchup with the Eagles where they are the better team, and if they plan on being a playoff contender, they must win these games. The Eagles have a ton of question marks going into the season, and we still do not know if they made the right decision at quarterback.
Philadelphia also looks to be a team in a rebuild and will have a season where they are trying to figure out if QB Jalen Hurts is the answer. With that in mind, there could be some very inconsistent play, which the Raiders could take advantage of, forcing some turnovers and getting to Hurts early.
However, the Eagles’ defensive line could make this game a lot more complicated than fans might think. In the end, they should still take care of business and get back over .500 on the season, proving to be a legitimate contender in the AFC playoff picture at this point in the year.
