The Las Vegas Raiders played their worst game of the season in Week 5, losing to a rookie quarterback at home against the Chicago Bears.
In a game that many had picked the Las Vegas Raiders to win, what was delivered was a stinker in a 20-9 loss, that in all honesty never was that close. The Raiders once again came out slow and allowed the Chicago Bears to hang around, and before you could blink, the Silver and Black were down 14-3 at the half.
It did not get much better in the second half, and in the end, it was the second straight loss for the Raiders. Of course, the Los Angeles Chargers are a tough team, and playing them on the road is a hard matchup, but the Bears, with a rookie quarterback at home, is a game that they should never lose.
When it comes to naming bright spots, this is a hard thing to choose, and the Silver and Black as a whole looked lethargic and unprepared against a team that does not have very high expectations for the season. Is this going to be the theme in 2021? The Raiders playing up to teams, and laying an egg against others?
Here are the Studs and Duds from the Week 5 loss.
