In the wake of a week that was full of turmoil, scrutiny, the Las Vegas Raiders prevailed.
But now, as interim coach Rich Bisaccia tries to get the Raiders (4-2) to stack victories after former coach Jon Gruden resigned when homophobic and misogynistic language was found in leaked emails, he'll look to do it against the Philadelphia Eagles (2-4). Quarterback Derek Carr and Las Vegas are coming off of a convincing 34-24 victory on the road against the division-rival Broncos. The victory and a loss by the Chargers put the Raiders in a tie for first in the AFC West.
The Eagles, meanwhile, have been up and down all season long, though both of their victories have come on the road. Philadelphia's offense has actually been productive this season, but struggles once it gets inside the red zone. The Eagles have converted only 75% of their trips inside the 20, which ranks 27th in the league. For quarterback Jalen Hurts and the Eagles to have a chance at the upset, they cannot be settling for field goals.
Ranking the Raiders' best coaching candidates to replace Jon Gruden in 2022
Here's a look at the Raiders' best head-coaching fits to replace Jon Gruden, who resigned Monday only three seasons and five games into a 10-year, $100 million contract. Gruden's coaching (and NFL broadcasting) career is likely finished at age 58 after a New York Times report revealed old emails in which he used homophobic and misogynistic language from 2010, when he was on ESPN's "Monday Night Football," through 2018, when he was re-hired by the Raiders.

32. Lions (Previously: 30): If they become totally disillusioned with QB Jared Goff -- in case you were wondering -- David Blough, Tim Boyle and Steven Montez are the in-house replacement options. So ... yeah.
24. Eagles (21): Since a strong performance on opening day in Atlanta, QB Jalen Hurts has completed fewer than 60% of his passes and is averaging just north of 240 yards through the air. His ability to make plays with his legs is nice, but the arm better do more if he wants to keep this job into 2022.
23. Patriots (26): Damien Harris could be New England's first 1,000-yard rusher in five years ... of course, these days, that only means you need to average 59 yards a week.

22. Colts (24): They're showing signs of life despite brutal early schedule, and QB Carson Wentz is a major reason. He's only been picked off once in 193 throws this season, his 0.5% INT rate pacing the league.
21. Broncos (17): They've been rudely reality-checked back to .500, they're 3-0 start as dubious as it seemed. Our advice? More carries for the RB duo of Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams, who are collectively averaging 4.7 yards per rush.
19. Seahawks (19): Backup QB Geno Smith has been adequate during Russell Wilson's absence but also hasn't produced any wins. Enter Cam Newton? "So I talked to him a couple times," coach Pete Carroll said Monday, "just trying to see what was going on his world and all that." Goings-on indeed.
13. Bengals (15): Remember back in August, when we were so obsessed about all the passes rookie WR Ja'Marr Chase was dropping? Now that we're playing REAL games, he's averaging 20.5 per reception, and his 553 receiving yards are second-most ever by a rookie six games into his career.
10. Chiefs (10): They've had a lot of great backs and tight ends here over the years. But Tyreek Hill is staking claim as best wideout in team history, his 63 TDs most in Kansas City history among receivers and one behind RB Jamaal Charles for third place overall.
8. Bills (5): Their four-game streak with at least 35 points came to an end in Nashville as did their status as prohibitive AFC favorites, Buffalo now projected as the conference's fourth playoff seed through six weeks.
7. Titans (11): The latest bullet point for RB Derrick Henry's MVP résumé? He personally hung 18 points Monday night on a Buffalo defense that entered the game allowing a league-low 12.8 per game and hadn't let a back into the end zone.
4. Cowboys (4): The Dallas defense may only rank 24th overall, even after surrendering season-low 335 yards to New England, but it leads NFC with 14 takeaways -- with at least two in 10 consecutive games for the first time since 1976-77. Coordinator Dan Quinn and Co. are getting it done.
1. Cardinals (1): League's only unbeaten team is struggling on COVID-19 scoreboard. Though Arizona reported its roster was fully vaccinated last month, Cards have league-high 24 coronavirus cases within organization entering Week 7. The schedule is being far kinder than the pandemic, serving up Houston next, but the scalding Packers come to desert after that.
