David Carr’s six touchdowns and zero interceptions has the Raiders ranking in the top 10 for scoring, but he’s not alone in doing the heavy lifting.

The Las Vegas Raiders got humbled by the AFC East in Week 3, and they’ll be getting another crack at the division Sunday as the 3-0 Buffalo Bills visit Sin City. Buffalo brings the NFL’s fourth-best offence too, providing a tough challenge for a Raiders team ranking 27th in yards against.

Even though the Raiders are 1-0 at their new dome and Allegiant Stadium is a cross-country trip for the Bills, Las Vegas is coming back from out in Massachusetts last week themselves.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Winners of 13 of their last 20 games, Buffalo is quickly emerging as an AFC favourite.

A 3-0 start certainly helps their case, along with third-year quarterback Josh Allen playing some fantastic football. Allen’s thrown 10 touchdowns and one interception through three weeks while manning the NFL’s second-best passing offence.

For Las Vegas, it’s home sweet home as they’re giving up nine fewer points at home. Fireworks are still likely in store this Sunday, as the over has hit in six straight Bills–Raiders games.

The over-under is currently set for 52.5 points, and the Bills are -3 favourites on the road.

Buffalo Bills

Allen’s the talk of Buffalo at the moment, but it’s his new number one receiver who has elevated this Bills’ offence. Stefon Diggs is that guy, recording 288 receiving yards in his first three games as a Bill. That’s not to say Allen isn’t spreading the ball around, as seven Bills have already caught touchdowns already.

Buffalo’s defence gave up a grand 29 second-half points to the Rams last week, dropping the Bills to 21st in yards against. For a unit that was so stellar in 2019–20, this slow start is slightly concerning — even Miami had over 400 yards against Buffalo in Week 2.

Regardless, a 3-0 record for Buffalo might be the start of a turn in the tide in the AFC East.

Las Vegas Raiders

Most people may have respected the Raiders’ 2-0 start, but didn’t believe in them. Week 3 confirmed this with Las Vegas down by 23 midway through the fourth quarter. But don’t sleep on Derek Carr and the Raiders, who are clicking on offence so far.

Carr’s six touchdowns and zero interceptions has the Raiders ranking in the top 10 for scoring, but he’s not alone in doing the heavy lifting. Sophomore running back Josh Jacobs is coming into his own this season, sitting in fifth with 252 rushing yards.

Averaging 406 yards against per game, Las Vegas’ defence isn’t exactly thriving. Then again, in their lone home game — and win — in Week 2 the Raiders held New Orleans to 24 points.
