The Silver and Black hit the Bye Week following a late comeback victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 5 across the pond in London. In the NFL's first-ever game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Raiders put together a 13-play, 97-yard drive late in the fourth quarter that culminated in RB Josh Jacobs' second rushing TD of the game to give the Raiders their third win of the year. It marked QB Derek Carr's17th career fourth-quarter comeback as he was efficient throughout the game, completing 78.1 percent (25-of-32) of his passes for 229 yards to earn his third consecutive game with a passer rating of at least 95.0 (96.5). Jacobs and the offensive line left their mark, as the line held the Bears' defense without a sack for just the second time since 2017, while Jacobs became the first running back in franchise history to post 100 rushing yards against Chicago's club. The defense was stout, recording four sacks and two INTs in the same contest for the first time since 2014. DT Maurice Hurst led the way with his first career multi-sack contest, while CB Gareon Conley and LB Nicholas Morrow both added INTs in the contest.
