The Las Vegas Raiders will be looking to make it two victories in a row on Sunday, as they play host to the New England Patriots inside Allegiant Stadium. It has been a roller coaster of a season for the Silver and Black so far in 2023, but they have a soft spot in their schedule coming up, and need to take advantage of every winnable game.
The New England Patriots are hurting in a big way going into this one, and are fresh off the worst loss of Bill Belichick's career with the franchise. Their 34-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints put quarterback Mac Jones on notice, and the reports coming out on Sunday are that he will be on a short leash against the Silver and Black.
These are the games the Raiders are supposed to win, and if they do somehow falter against a very banged-up Patriots team, Josh McDaniels is in big trouble. The Silver and Black have elite talent on both sides of the ball, and when a team like the Patriots come into your home building, you have to be able to take care of business.
I believe the Raiders will do so on Sunday, and here is why that will happen.
