Las Vegas Raiders: Game by game predictions after the 2021 bye week
Week 9 – Nov. 7 at New York Giants
This is a win for the Raiders on paper as they face a New York Giants team that has been inconsistent and riddled with injury this season. New York has had their two starting receivers Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard and star running back Saquon Barkley all missed time along with a host of other offensive weapons.
They have also lost some weapons on defense including safety Jabrill Peppers who will miss the rest of the season but they have cobbled together two wins over NFC South competition. The Raiders should be able to go into MetLife stadium and get the victory, especially with them coming off a bye week and the Giants losing in Kansas City on the previous Monday night.
The Giants gave Kansas City their best shot and their defense kept them in the game but they lost too much firepower on offense to keep up and eventually fell short. If the Raiders can move the ball and force Daniel Jones into some mistakes they should be able to come away victorious.
Win – Record: 6-2
