Las Vegas, NV.--The Las Vegas Raiders (4-2) play host to the Philadelphia Eagles (2-4) from the NFC East today, here at Allegiant Stadium.
The Raiders look to continue their surging success with a needed bye next week. The Eagles are desperate to get their season back on track, and a win over the Silver and Black, on the road, could accomplish that.
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.

HALFTIME: Raiders lead 17-7 at the half.
Based on the way the game started, it looked like the Las Vegas Raiders would have to dig themselves out of another early first quarter hole.
The Philadelphia Eagles were able to go down the field on their first drive, running the ball well and seeing quarterback Jalen Hurts only have to throw two passes, one of them being for the touchdown that put the Eagles up 7-0.
The Raiders would get into the red zone on their opening possession as well, but came out empty handed when QB Derek Carr had a pass tipped for an interception.
On the Eagles next drive, though, running back Miles Sanders went down with an ankle injury and was carted off the field.
It seemed that loss sapped much of the Eagles energy, as the Raiders would go on to dominate the rest of the half after.
They scored on each of their next three drives to finish the half with a 17-7, with Carr playing nearly perfect in having only one incompletion in that stretch after he was picked.
They've also been able to finally establish an effective running game, with RB Josh Jacobs in particular having a standout half with two touchdowns.
Jacobs did go into the locker room before the half ended with a chest injury and is questionable to return, so his status will be key to watch for the rest of the game.
Defensively, the Raiders have taken full advantage of a Sanders-less Eagles offense, shutting down the Eagles running game and forcing a fumble late in the half that led to a Raiders field goal.
Ignoring the opening drives, it's been a picture perfect half of football for the Raiders, and they'll have the opportunity to put the game further out of reach with being able to start with the ball in the second half.
