Chicago (2-2) at Las Vegas (3-1), 4:05 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 714. The Windy City meets Sin City as Da Bears travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders.

Da Bears held off a late Detroit rally last Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field and came away 24-14 winners in the Windy City. Chicago led 14-0 at the intermission and never trailed after, holding off their NFC North rivals in the process. Chicago’s David Montgomery led all rushers with 106 yards and a pair of TDs as Da Bears outrushed Detroit 188-90 and Bears rookie QB Justin Fields threw for 209 yards, while Detroit’s Jared Goff threw for 299 yards with a pair of TDs to Kalif Raymond (Goff was sacked four times, Fields was sacked once and threw the game’s only interception). Chicago went 1 for 8 on third down (1 for 1 on fourth down) and the Monsters of the Midway would hold on to the ball for 28:43, while the Lions were actually rulers of the clock, keeping the pigskin for 31:17, going 4 for 11 on third down, 1 of 3 on fourth down.

The Chargers held off a lightning delay and the Las Vegas Raiders last Monday night, coming away from SoFi on the short end of a 28-14 loss to their AFC West rivals in prime time. Las Vegas watched Los Angeles score the first 21 points of the contest unchallenged, taking a 21-0 lead with them into the intermission before the Silver and Black rallied in the third quarter, scoring 14 points using a pair of Carr TD tosses in the period without a threat before Los Angeles put an end to the threat, scoring in the fourth to seal the win. Chargers RB Austin Elker led all rushers with 117 yards and a TD as the Bolts held the Raiders to 48 yards, while rushing for 168 of their own. Justin Hebert threw for 221 yards and three TDs, while Carr threw for 196 yards, a pair of TDs and the game’s only interception (Carr was sacked four times, Hebert was sacked twice). Both clubs were 4 for 13 on third down; on fourth down, the Chargers were 2 for 1, the Raiders were 1 of 3 and time was on the side of Los Angeles, who would keep the ball for 34:42 to Las Vegas’ 25:18.

Including contests in Oakland and Los Angeles, the Raiders lead the series by an 8-7 margin but Da Bears have outscored the Silver and Black 277-273. Their last meeting was in 2017 but it was not in the United States. Instead, the two clubs were on the other side of the Atlantic in London in 2019 and the Silver and Black would leave Wembley Stadium 24-21 winners, while Chicago’s last win came in the Windy City in 2015 by a final of 25-20. The Raiders are favored by 5 1/2 in the desert with the over/under coming in a 45 1/2. Both numbers make a lot of sense. Chicago prevails in the desert and takes the road win but expect the Silver and Black to make this one closer than 5 1/2.
