For the third week in a row, the Las Vegas Raiders have a very winnable game with their Week 7 matchup against the Chicago Bears.

At 1-5, the Bears have been a dumpster fire for the majority of the season, and starting quarterback Justin Fields was ruled doubtful for the game with a dislocated thumb on Monday. So, it looks like Chicago will be rolling with rookie undrafted free agent and Division II product Tyson Bagnet under center. They also have one of the worst defenses in the league, ranking tied for 29th with 29.3 points per game allowed.

However, the Raiders might be starting a backup quarterback this Sunday too, as Jimmy Garoppolo recovers from the back injury that held him out of the second half against the Patriots. As of right now, we don’t know if Aidan O’Connell or Brian Hoyer will be taking snaps.

So, there’s plenty to talk about for this week’s mailbag!
