In a game where they dominated throughout, the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and here are three surprises.
The Las Vegas Raiders were once again back to their winning ways this past weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles, improving to 5-2 on the season, and looking pretty dominant doing so. Even more impressive was the fact they are now 2-0 under Rich Bisaccia, who may have to shed that interim label if he continues to lead the team this way.
When Bisaccia took over for Jon Gruden after his resignation, he was labeled as a leader of men, and he has been all of that and more. This team is rallying around him, playing their best football of the season, and are leaving no doubt that they are a playoff contender entering their bye week.
On Sunday, the Raiders defense was outstanding against Jalen Hurts, Derek Carr was able to pick apart a top-10 pass defense, and while it was only an 11-point victory, the score was not indicative of how much of a blowout this was. If the Raiders continue to play at this level, the sky is the limit.
There are several surprises for this team sitting at 5-2, and atop of the AFC West standings as they look forward to a much-needed Week 8 bye, so let’s take a look at the main ingredients here.
