Las Vegas hosts the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium. Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m. PT. Here’s some more early week information on the Bears:
They are 2-2 after they beat the Detroit Lions 24-14 in Week 4.
Rookie quarterback Justin Fields showed promise against Detroit after struggling big time in Week 3. He threw for 209 yards against the Lions. Bears coach Matt Nagy said Andy Dalton will be the starter again when healthy, but there is still a good chance Fields will play against the Raiders. It could be a game-time decision. So, this could be the Raiders’ second game in five games that they are playing against a backup quarterback.
Mack Game II:
This will be the Raiders’ second game against pass rusher Khalil Mack since they traded him in September 2018. The Raiders beat Chicago and Mack in London in 2019.
This is the extra game on the Raiders’ schedule based on the new 17-game schedule. The Raiders have nine home games this season. They will play nine road games next year.
Early betting line:
The Raiders are a six-point favorite (46 is the over/under) at our friends from DraftKings. Of course, odds are subject to change.
