Las Vegas Raiders vs Los Angeles Rams Game TNF Preview

By

The Las Vegas Raiders head to Los Angeles for a matchup with the Rams on Thursday Night Football tonight. After a slow start, the Raiders have really picked up their play and have won three straight games. Going up against a poor Rams team tonight, Las Vegas needs to focus and not take them for granted.

The Raiders enter this game with a record of 5-7 and are looking to make an unlikely push towards the postseason. It will be difficult but the Las Vegas schedule still has some winnable games on it. If they can take down the Rams today, it could put them only a game back of the playoff picture depending how the weekend shakes out.

Los Angeles has had their own struggles thus far this season. The defending champions have looked like a shell of themselves and it has been hard to watch at times. They have also dealt with a plethora of injuries throughout the season, all leading to them having a 3-9 record currently.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield was claimed by the Rams this week after being let go by the Carolina Panthers. He may see some game action tonight and is looking to show that he can still be a capable NFL quarterback. It has been a struggle for Mayfield of late but maybe in a system run by offensive genius Sean McVay, things may change.

Despite the Raiders being the better team, pride comes into a game like this. I think that the Rams will put up a fight but ultimately, the Raiders pull out the win on Thursday Night Football.
