We are back to our Saturday routine of predicting Las Vegas Raiders games now that they are returning from their bye week.

The 5-7 Raiders is hosting the 6-6 Minnesota Vikings at Allegiant Stadium Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1:05 p.m. PT. Like the Raiders, the Vikings are fresh off their bye week.

It is an interesting matchup for interim coach Antonio Pierce’s Raiders, who have lost two straight games after winning the first two games under Pierce.

Like Pierce’s two wins, this is a backup with a backup quarterback at home and the Raiders can basically kiss their already is playoff chances goodbye fi they lose it.

There is a part of me that thinks the Raiders could be in trouble, but I don’t don’t like the Vikings’ quarterback situation.

Here goes: Raiders 17, Vikings 16.

Now, it’s your turn.

In other Raiders’ news:

  • Spillane balling: Raiders’ linebacker Robert Spillane has been PFF’s highest graded linebacker against the run since Week 9.
  • All-Pro team: PFF has a NFL All-Pro team for the third quarter mark of the season.
  • Draft prospects: Bleacher Report has some players the Raiders need to watch during the bowl season.
