The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12, and here is our official game preview and prediction for the matchup inside Lumen Field.
Week 12 brings another must-win game for the Las Vegas Raiders, as their early season struggles have left them in a big hole entering their 11th game of the season. Last weekend, the Silver and Black were finally able to win a close game, needing overtime to dispatch of the Denver Broncos on the road.
The win against Denver gave the Raiders the season sweep over the Broncos, something not many expected when the division rival traded for Russell Wilson this offseason. Still, those two wins are 66% of their total this season, as a 3-7 start has landed them a top-5 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft so far.
That is a far cry from where we expected this team to be when the season started, but there are still seven games left, and a chance to get back to respectability in Josh Mcdaniels’ first season as head coach. On Sunday, they take on a Seattle team that has been better than expected this season and will need contributions up and down the roster to pick up win No. 4.
Here, we look at this matchup, and how we think it could play out inside Lumen Field.
