Las Vegas @ Los Angeles
Current Records: Las Vegas 5-7; Los Angeles 3-9
What to Know
The Los Angeles Rams' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Las Vegas Raiders at 8:15 p.m. ET Dec. 8 at SoFi Stadium. Las Vegas should still be feeling good after a win, while the Rams will be looking to get back in the win column.
Los Angeles might have drawn first blood against the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday, but it was Seattle who got the last laugh. Los Angeles was within a late touchdown of stealing the victory, but they took the "L" against the Seahawks 27-23. QB John Wolford had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions with only 178 yards passing.
Special teams collected 11 points for Los Angeles. K Matt Gay delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, Las Vegas was able to grind out a solid victory over the Los Angeles Chargers this past Sunday, winning 27-20. It was another big night for Las Vegas' WR Davante Adams, who caught eight passes for two TDs and 177 yards.
Las Vegas' defense was a presence as well, as it got past Los Angeles' offensive line to sack QB Justin Herbert five times for a total loss of 21 yards. Leading the way was DE Chandler Jones and his three sacks. Jones now has 3.5 sacks through 12 games.
The Rams are expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Sunday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Los Angeles is now 3-9 while the Raiders sit at 5-7. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: Los Angeles enters the contest with only 96.7 rushing yards allowed per game on average, good for fourth best in the league. Less enviably, Las Vegas is stumbling into the matchup with the third most passing yards allowed per game in the NFL, having given up 270.8 on average.
