Week 14 in the NFL kicks off with the Las Vegas Raiders heading to Los Angeles to play the Rams on Thursday Night Football (TNF). Both teams are under .500, but the teams are headed in opposite directions. The Raiders have not lost a game in almost a month, while the Rams have not won a game since October.
All hope is not lost for the Raiders, as Las Vegas still holds a 5% chance of making the playoffs, according to CBS Sports. For Los Angeles, the Rams are not mathematically eliminated, but their chances of making the playoffs are less than 1%. One interesting note is the Rams claimed quarterback Baker Mayfield off waivers, so there is a chance the former number-one pick will suit up on TNF.
The game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Rams will start at 8:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, December 8. The game will be played at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. According to Fanduel, Vegas is favored by 6.5 points.

How to stream Raiders vs. Rams on Thursday Night Football
In addition to the Prime video app, there is another way to watch Thursday Night Football. Games can be watched exclusively on your mobile phone or tablet via NFL+. Users can watch live local and primetime regular season and postseason games. There are two subscription options: NFL+ and NFL+ Premium. NFL+ costs $5 a month or $40 a season, and NFL+ Premium, which includes everything from NFL+ and the all-22 film, costs $10 a month or $80 a season.
The Las Vegas Raiders enter the game with an overall record of 5-7. After a 2-7 start, the Raiders have won three straight games, including a 27-20 win over their division rival, the Los Angeles Chargers. The Raiders still have a slim chance of making the postseason, as they are two games back of the seventh and final seed.
The Los Angeles Rams enter TNF with an overall record of 3-9. It’s hard to believe that the Rams won last year’s Super Bowl, but injuries and unlucky breaks have crippled their season. The Rams are losers of six straight and have not won a game since October 16 against the Carolina Panthers. At this point, the Rams would like the season to end sooner rather than later.
