Raiders Vs. Vikings Live Game Updates, Analysis

The Las Vegas Raiders (5-7) are hosting the Minnesota Vikings(6-6) today here at Allegiant Stadium, and we have the up-to-the-minute updates, analysis, and highlights.

LAS VEGAS, Nev.--The Las Vegas Raiders (5-7) enter today's game versus the Minnesota Vikings (6-6) with only five games remaining in the 2023 NFL regular season and wishing to make a point.

The Raiders have vastly improved under the tutelage of Interim Coach Antonio Pierce, and the players not only have NFL Playoff aspirations left but also want to earn Pierce the job full-time.

Remember the rule of five: The game is over if the Raiders win that key statistical battle. It concerns sacks and turnovers for those who don't remember it. If the Raiders have three sacks and give up two, they are plus one. They are plus three if they get four turnovers and give up only one. That would give them a plus-four for the day. They want to get to a plus-five ratio every game. On average, teams that reach the rule of five scenarios win 91 percent of their NFL games.

Here are our staff and podcast guests' predictions for today:

Hondo Carpenter 24-17 Raiders---Matt Hladik 20-17 Vikings

Brayden "The Kid" Reedy 24-20 Raiders--Jon Schopp 26-17 Raiders
