Las Vegas, NV.--The Las Vegas Raiders (3-1) are playing host today to the Chicago Bears (2-2).
The Bears are starting rookie quarterback Justin Fields, while the Raiders are led by savvy veteran signal-caller Derek Carr.
Remember the rule of five. If the Las Vegas Raiders win that key statistical battle, the game is over. For those who don't remember it, it has to do with sacks and turnovers. If the Raiders have three sacks and give up two, that means they are plus one. If they then get four turnovers and give up only one, that means they are plus three. That would give them a plus-four for the day. They want to get to a plus-five ratio every game. Teams that reach the rule of five scenarios win 91 percent of their NFL games on average.

SCORING UPDATE #3: Bears Damien Williams runs four yards for a touchdown. PAT is good. Chicago leads 14-3 with 1:56 left to go in the first half.
HALFTIME: Bears lead 14-3 at the half.
In making any observations about the first half that sees the Las Vegas Raiders down 14-3 at home against the Chicago Bears, it must start with this:
That is the sloppiest and most self-defeating half of football the Raiders have played all season.
The game started decently enough, as the Raiders defense made Chicago go three and out on their first two drives.
The Raiders on their second drive were then able to move down the field, with quarterback Derek Carr making multiple good throws.
Running back Josh Jacobs also showed some juice and the Raiders offensive line, for a bit, was playing with more of an edge.
A holding penalty, though, would ruin their momentum once they got to the Bears two-yard line, with the Raiders having to eventually kick a field goal.
From that point on, it's been all Chicago, with Bears quarterback Justin Fields taking multiple big hits in the process.
The Raiders were called for multiple roughing the passer penalties on those hits, part of a first half that saw them be called for six penalties for 48 yards.
The Bears would go on to score on two of their three final possessions of the half, sandwiched between the Raiders failing to convert on a fourth down play deep in Bears territory.
It was simply a second quarter dominated by Chicago, with the Raiders defense not able at all to get off the field and not able contain a Bears running game that has 98 yards at half.
Offensively, the Raiders need to sustain their drives and likely start throwing more down the field, as the running game overall continues to stall.
It's a similar story that they've had to overcome to come back in two of their other wins when they've been down by two scores.
If the Raiders plan on staying undefeated at home, it'll probably come down to Carr to deliver in a comeback once again.
