Why the Raiders can cover
Las Vegas' current surge has been led by running back Josh Jacobs and wide receiver Davante Adams, who are on their way to breaking franchise records. Jacobs has posted three straight 100-yard performances, averaging 160.7 yards while running for three touchdowns during the team's winning streak. The 24-year-old leads the NFL with a career-high 1,303 rushing yards and is 457 away from breaking the Raiders' single-season record set in 1985 by Marcus Allen.
Adams has been the focal point of the team's aerial attack, hauling in 22 passes for 392 yards and four TDs over the last three contests. The 29-year-old is fourth in the league with 1,176 receiving yards and tied for first with 12 scoring catches. Adams, who is 233 yards away from eclipsing the franchise's single-season mark set in 1997 by Tim Brown, has a league-leading 85 touchdown receptions since making his debut in 2014 and is the sixth player of the Super Bowl era to have at least 20 multi-TD games over his first nine seasons.

Why the Rams can cover
The Rams are missing several of their top offensive players due to injuries, meaning big things will be expected from Cam Akers. The 23-year-old running back, who missed the team's first 16 games last season with a torn Achilles tendon, has rushed for 158 yards over his last three contests after gaining 176 in his first seven outings of 2022. Akers came up with his most productive performance of the year last Sunday, when he carried a season-high 17 times against the Seahawks for 61 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Facing Seattle also brought out the best in Bobby Wagner, who spent the first 10 years of his NFL career with the club before signing with the Rams in March. The 32-year-old linebacker made his first interception of 2022 and recorded a pair of sacks to increase his season total to five, tying him for the team lead. Wagner's addition has helped strengthen the Rams' run defense, which ranks fourth in the NFL with an average of 96.7 yards allowed per contest. See which team to pick here.
