After an eventful Week 6, the Raiders got a win in Denver against the Broncos. In Week 7, they put on a show once again, defeating the Eagles in Las Vegas. The Raiders took a 30-7 lead at one point in the third quarter before allowing some garbage time points to Jalen Hurts and the Eagles.

After a red zone interception, Derek Carr was lights-out for the rest of the day. He completed 31 of 34 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns. He was highly efficient and led the offense to 33 points without Darren Waller and Josh Jacobs for most of the day.

But the story of the day was the defense. After forcing four turnovers last week, the Raiders forced two more this week and recovered a (surprise) onside kick. They were able to get a red zone stop in the third quarter which thwarted any comeback attempt by the Eagles.

Las Vegas also got a big performance in this game from Foster Moreau, who was filling in for the injured Darren Waller. He had a career day against the Eagles, totaling 60 yards and a touchdown. The team totaled over 440 yards on offense in another fantastic performance by the unit.

The Raiders now sit at 5-2 on the season, which just so happens to be tied for the best record in the AFC. With the Chiefs and Broncos both sitting at 3-4, the Raiders have a real chance to win the AFC West this season.

Las Vegas is now on their bye in Week 8, which couldn’t come at a better time with all of their injuries on defense and to Josh Jacobs. Their next game will take place in New York against the Giants in Week 9.
