Week 15: vs New England Patriots (Sunday Night Football
For head coach Josh McDaniels, the matchup in Week 15 is certainly one he is going to have circled on his calendar. In Week 15, Las Vegas will welcome McDaniels’s former employer in the New England Patriots, and give him a chance to beat his mentor Bill Belichick.
Playing in front of a home crowd, this one has the makings for must-see television, and it will be a primetime game on Sunday Night Football. New England made it back to the playoffs with Mac Jones at the helm as a rookie last season and should be a contender for the AFC East crown in 2022.
Unfortunately for the Raiders, the Patriots come into Allegiant Stadium and pull off the victory, hurting the playoff chances for Las Vegas, and putting more pressure on them down the stretch. With three games to go, the Raiders will have to find a few more wins, with their next matchup being a key one on Christmas Eve.
Record: 9-5 overall, 3-2 in AFC West
