What to Know
The Las Vegas Raiders will head out on the road to face off against the New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Raiders should still be feeling good after a win, while New England will be looking to right the ship.
Las Vegas netted a 34-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints last week. QB Derek Carr and TE Darren Waller were among the main playmakers for Las Vegas as the former passed for three TDs and 282 yards on 38 attempts and the latter caught 12 passes for one TD and 103 yards. Carr ended up with a passer rating of 120.70.
Meanwhile, New England scored first but ultimately less than the Seattle Seahawks in their matchup last week. New England was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap as they fell 35-30 to Seattle. The contest was a 14-14 toss-up at halftime, but the Patriots were outplayed the rest of the way. The losing side was boosted by QB Cam Newton, who passed for one TD and 397 yards on 44 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 47 yards.
The Raiders are expected to lose this next one by 7. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Las Vegas suffered a grim 33-8 defeat to New England when the teams previously met three seasons ago. Can Las Vegas avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
