The Las Vegas Raiders play host to the Chicago Bears in Week 5, and here are three things to keep an eye on in the matchup.
In Week 5, the Las Vegas Raiders will play host to the Chicago Bears, a team that has gotten off to a 2-2 start to the season. For the Raiders, this will be the first time this season that they are coming off a loss, as they were beaten on the road by the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night inside SoFi Stadium.
This weekend, they return to Allegiant Stadium to take on the Bears and newly-minted starting quarterback Justin Fields. It should be an exciting matchup, and here are three things to keep an eye on.
Las Vegas Raiders vs Chicago Bears: 3 things to watch
Raiders revamped offensive line
By now, unless you live under a rock, you know that the Raiders have made some changes along their offensive line, including moving Alex Leatherwood inside. The big fella from Alabama has had a rough go of it to start his NFL career, racking up sacks and penalties, and based on his athletic ability, is likely better suited as a guard.
In his place, Brandon Parker will get the start at right tackle, and he played well in spurts last season for the Silver and Black. Still, no word as to whether or not Nick Martin will get some run at center due to Andre James’ ineffective play, but whoever the five is that starts on Sunday, former Raiders star Khalil Mack is waiting.
At least Akeem Hicks is doubtful.
