Thursday Night Football: Raiders at Rams (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread, More

The Raiders come into Inglewood winners of three straight games looking to pull to within a game of .500 against the surprisingly bad Los Angeles Rams. The Rams will be making a game time decision between John Wolford and Baker Mayfield under center tonight, which is just about all you need to know regarding how bad this team has been this season.

With Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Allen Robinson II, and Aaron Donald all out for tonight’s game, the Rams are lacking almost all of the star power that the Amazon Prime schedule makers were banking on when they picked this game for this week’s installment of TNF.

For the Raiders, Josh Jacobs has been on fire of late, but he’s dealing with an oblique injury that might slow him down tonight. Derek Carr can become the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for over 3,000 yards in each of his first nine seasons with just 20 passing yards.
