The 2-4 Philadelphia Eagles lost their fourth game of the season in Week 6 with second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts playing the meh ball through the air (12/26, 115 yds, TD, INT) while excelling on the ground with his legs (10 car, 44 yds, 2 TD), but his Eagles failed to convert seven of 10 third downs in that loss, inconsistent play that will not beat these Raiders.
Maybe the Raiders beat the Broncos in Week 6 for interim head coach Rich Bisaccia’s sake, but now the 4-2 Las Vegas team must ride that momentum against a Philly team that’s ranked fifth against the pass, yet another challenge for quarterback Derek Carr (below) while his dual-threat running back Kenyan Drake provides a worthy distraction.
These two cross-conference rivals have played each other 13 previous times (including 1 postseason game), with the Las Vegas Raiders winning 6 of those games and the Philadelphia Eagles winning 7 of the games.
Young quarterbacks like Jalen Hurts tend to be less accurate in the NFL as they adjust to the pro level of play, but so far he has improved in this area since his rookie season when he only completed 52 percent of his passes.
Now in 2021 Hurts has completed 62.5 percent of his throws and he has half as many interceptions (4) as he does touchdown passes (8) and right now his longest completion of 91-yards leads the league.
Hurts will be facing a Vegas secondary that stars cornerback Casey Hayward and safety Jonathan Abram who lead a tough group to pass against who keep opponents to just over 220 yards through the air per game.
The Raiders were on a two-game losing slide when the news was announced that their head coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign in disgrace after a plethora of offensive emails emerged from his past.
Team owner Mark Davis immediately named special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia as the team’s interim head coach right before the Week 6 game and the Raiders immediately stepped up and beat the Denver Broncos, 34-24, an emotional win that turned that losing streak around.
Now that long moment of drama has subsided and it will be interesting to watch how the Raiders players respond in Week 7 against these Eagles, a matchup that thankfully happens at home in Allegiant Stadium in front of fans also still reeling from this leadership change.

It’s a great time to be a Philadelphia Eagles tight end since their best player at that position, Zach Ertz, was just traded to the Arizona Cardinals leaving huge cleats to fill along the Philadelphia front line.
That opening should be filled by Dallas Goedert, a fourth-year player who took a back seat to Ertz but who proved time and again that he is ready for his closeup, so far this season with 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns in the five games that he has played.
Goedert sat out last week on the Reserve-Covid-19 list and he is still listed as questionable for Sunday, so he will be a last-minute coach’s decision that could make a big difference on offense in this game.
The Raiders haven’t played since last Thursday, so the players should be well rested by Sunday, although their quarterback Derek Carr seems to play well on little to no sleep the way he must have last week as his head coach resigned.
Despite that shakeup, Carr still managed to post some impressive numbers against the Broncos completing 18-of-27 for 341 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers for an impressive quarterback rating of 134.4 in the team’s fourth win.
A natural team leader, it will be up to Carr to keep his playmakers’ heads off the drama and onto the game since a Week 7 win over the Eagles will put the Raiders a critical game closer to earning the AFC West lead outright.
