Less than a month ago, being in contention for a playoff berth was nothing more than wishful thinking for the Las Vegas Raiders. However, after winning three consecutive games and watching other teams falter, they find themselves only two games out of the final AFC wild-card spot with five games remaining. The Raiders (5-7) will try to strengthen their chances when they visit the free-falling Los Angeles Rams (3-9) on Thursday Night Football. Los Angeles is in the midst of a six-game losing streak after dropping a 27-23 decision to Seattle last week.

Why the Raiders can cover
Josh Jacobs has been on a tear, rushing for an average of 160.7 yards during Las Vegas’ three-game winning streak. The 24-year-old leads the NFL with a career-high 1,303 yards and is on pace to break the Raiders’ single-season record of 1,759 set in 1985 by Marcus Allen. Jacobs also is first in the league in rushing first downs (72) and tackles avoided (88).
Another player in line to set a new franchise record is Davante Adams, who is fourth in the NFL with 1,176 receiving yards. The 29-year-old wideout needs only 233 yards to eclipse Tim Brown’s mark of 1,408 set in 1997. Since Week 9, Adams tops the league in targets (66) and receiving yards (664) and is tied for first in receptions (41) and touchdown catches (7). See which team to pick here.
Why the Rams can cover
Los Angeles received a solid effort last week from Cam Akers, who missed the team’s first 16 games last year with a torn Achilles tendon. The 23-year-old running back had a season-high 17 carries in the loss to the Seahawks and gained 60 yards, marking just the third time this year he reached that mark. Akers also found the end zone twice after recording only one rushing touchdown over his first nine contests in 2022.
The Rams have one of the weakest aerial attacks in the NFL this season as they rank 25th with an average of 195.8 yards per game, but they’ll face a Las Vegas defense that is 30th against the pass (258.1 yards). With wideouts Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Allen Robinson (foot) both on the shelf, Los Angeles spread the ball around on Sunday as five different players were targeted three or more times, with four registering at least 30 receiving yards. Tight end Tyler Higbee is the team’s leader among healthy players with 50 receptions and 444 yards, but has yet to haul in a touchdown pass. See which team to pick here.
