The AFC South is a bit crowded at the moment, which will make things interesting on Sunday as the Raiders (7-5) face the Indianapolis Colts (8-4) in Las Vegas. 

Last week, the Raiders got a career game from tight end Darren Waller to help lift the team over the lowly New York Jets. He caught 13 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns.

Las Vegas' matchup against the Colts carries huge playoff implications. Indianapolis is the No. 7 seed in the AFC playoffs with the Raiders right behind them in the standings. 

Both quarterbacks, Derek Carr and Philip Rivers, are putting up good numbers this season, but the Raiders quarterback could have difficulties against that Colts defense.

Line: Raiders +3
