The 5-2 Las Vegas Raiders put together yet another dominating effort in their 33-22 win over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles and head into the bye on a high.
The Las Vegas Raiders of the last two years would’ve lost this game after coming off a huge division win on the road, but this game was yet another reminder that this isn’t the same team. The Raiders dominated the Philadelphia Eagles until garbage time in the fourth quarter, eventually winning by a score of 33-22.
Derek Carr and the defense once again led the way for the second week in the row, with Carr having yet another 300+ yard game, and ending the game with a 91. % completion percentage. The defense once again gave up a touchdown on the opponents’ opening drive, just to not let them score another point until the fourth quarter.
The other players who stood out were Kenyan Drake for a second straight week and tight end Foster Moreau. Moreau got the start at tight end today due to an ankle/foot injury that happened to Darren Waller Saturday during practice.
There were many points made by this Raiders team these last two weeks, but take a look at three things we learned about the Raiders in this game in particular.
