Las Vegas Raiders 28, Chicago Bears 17

The Las Vegas Raiders should be able to get back on track after being thoroughly beaten by the LA Chargers in Week 4, mostly because they do not have the toughest of opponents in Week 5. Vegas is welcoming the Bears into town which is huge, because if this was in Chicago, it is very easy to see Derek Carr having a vintage bad road game, resulting in the L.

However, the Raiders play well at home and they are welcoming a rookie quarterback in Justin Fields who definitely has potential but has not pieced it altogether yet. Most of the blame should be put on the coaching staff as Matt Nagy feels like this year's version of Anthony Lynn.

Every LA Chargers fan feels for you, Bears fans. We know what it is like.

The Chargers were the first team that vertically challenged the Raiders and did a pretty good job. Vegas made good adjustments in the second half to keep Justin Herbert at bay after an insane first half but the Chargers made the adjustment to the adjustment and gave Austin Ekeler the rock a lot in the second half.

The Bears won't be able to make those adjustments. They won't be able to because their coach is terrible and they are missing their star running back, David Montgomery.

It is hard to see Chicago's offense really getting anything going and the only reason it will be this close is a garbage time score for Justin Fields.
