Raiders vs. Saints: Prediction
Both teams will play each other for the first time since 2020. The Raiders seem to have the upper hand considering their current performances. The Saints have injury concerns as well, while Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, and Marshon Lattimore have been ruled out. This gives an undue advantage to the away team. Both teams are desperate for wins, so expect a nice contest.
