Raiders vs. Washington Football Team Live Game Thread

Sports Illustrated's Raider Maven provides you the official Las Vegas Raiders versus the Washington Football Team game thread.

Henderson, NV.--The Las Vegas Raiders (6-5) are in need of a big win today as they host the Washington Football Team (5-6) here at Allegiant Stadium.

A win today would move the Raiders to two games above five hundred, and put them squarely on the road to a double-digit win season.

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 UPDATE: 

It looked like the Washington Football Team's offense could have been in for a productive day after a dominant first drive that resulted in the games only touchdown. 

The action bogged down after that, as both Washington and the Las Vegas Raiders have pretty held serve for the rest of the game, with Washington leading 7-3 at the half. 

For Washington, they have been able to continue their recent formula for success in running the football well and winning the time of possession. 

Running back Antonio Gibson is on his way to another good game with 65 yards at the half while averaging 5.4 yards per carry.

Quarterback Taylor Heinicke has been efficient in completing nearly 80% of his passes, but the Raiders defense has only allowed a couple of those to go for 10-plus gains. 

Washington's defense has certainly done their job in containing the Raiders offense, with Derek Carr having to often settle for check-downs. 

That's the main reason why Josh Jacobs has the most receptions on the Raiders currently with seven, but only for 22 yards.

They haven't been able to generate any holes in the running game, and won't have Kenyan Drake for the rest of the game after being injured earlier in the first half. 

With starting the second half with the ball, the Raiders need to find a way to get more consistent looks down the field and sustain drives.

If Washington continues to dominate the ball, even if the Raiders defense can hold them to limited points, it won't matter if the Raiders offense never have the opportunity to establish any sort of rhythm.
