Once again playing on a short week, the Las Vegas Raiders will head home to take on the Chicago Bears after losing Monday night in Los Angeles.
On Monday night, the Las Vegas Raiders opened up their divisional slate on the road, heading to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers in a primetime matchup. Unfortunately for the Silver and Black, they once again dug themselves a huge hole, going down 21-0 at the half, and there just was not enough in the tank to come all the way back.
They made it a game, pulling within seven after two third quarter touchdowns, but in the end, the Chargers were able to pull away, winning 28-14. The loss was the first of the season for the Raiders, who have gotten out to a solid 3-1 start, and will look to get back on the winning track at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
Las Vegas is 2-0 at home this season, including wins over Baltimore and Miami, two teams who won ten games last season.

Raiders vs Chicago Prediction Week 5
The loss to the Chargers was a tough one for the Raiders, who were the only remaining undefeated team left in the AFC. Las Vegas will be facing an old friend in this matchup inside Allegiant Stadium, as Khalil Mack will be playing in front of the fans who were sad to see him sent away via trade before the 2018 season.
For Las Vegas, they need to figure out the offensive line, as Derek Carr was under duress all game long against Los Angeles. They will be able to do so against Chicago, who just is not good right now, and still do not know who the quarterback will be this Sunday, as Andy Dalton will start if healthy enough.
Whether Justin Fields or Dalton, this one could get ugly, and I like the Raiders winning going away, 24-10.
