It’s Saturday again and it’s time to talk about our predictions for the Las Vegas Raiders.

This week, Week 7, of course, your Raiders visit the Chicago Bears with a 10 a.m. PT kickoff set for Sunday.

This is yet another great opportunity for the Silver and Black as look to win their third-straight game to improve to 4-3 and move past .500 for the first time this season. It’s a golden opportunity as they play a dreadful 1-5 Bears’ team that is really banged up and are expected to be playing without starting quarterback Justin Fields, because of a dislocated thumb. Undrafted rookie Tyson Bagent, who went to tiny Shepard University in West Virginia, is set to start for the first time.

To say this is a winnable game for the Raiders would surely be an understatement.

Here’s my prediction: Raiders 23, Bears 9.

Now, it’s your turn. What’s your prediction?

In other Raiders’ news:

  • Go A.J.: Here’s some love for Raiders’ stellar punter A.J. Cole.
  • Changing course? The Raiders haven’t been great as a favorite. But is it changing this year?
  • Early-game trouble: The Raiders haven’t been good in 10 a.m. starts. Maybe that changes Sunday.
