The Las Vegas Raiders will look to continue their winning ways on Sunday, and here are three things to watch against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Coming off a win in the debut of the ‘Bisaccia’ era, the Las Vegas Raiders are looking to continue their strong play in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles (2-4). The Silver and Black are currently tied for the AFC West division lead with the Los Angeles Chargers.
This is an intriguing matchup, and although the Eagles record would indicate they are not one of the more powerful teams the Raiders will face this season, they are coming off a narrow loss to defending super bowl champs the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have a dynamic young quarterback, and some interesting pieces, so this is not going to be a walk in the park.
The Raiders may be favored in this matchup, and it helps it also is a home game, but this contest should be competitive and the Eagles should not be overlooked. The last time the Silver and Black were home, they struggled big time, especially early, something they cannot afford to do in Week 7.
I will discuss three things that must be watched with a careful eye in this upcoming Sunday matchup.
