For the first time in his National Football League career, Chiefs linebacker Reggie Ragland (Bob Jones) was active for a regular-season game. Oakland enjoys a 62-51-2 edge (including playoff games) in the all-time series.
Last Sunday night the Oakland Raiders weren’t involved in a football game; They were the victims in a massacre.
The Oakland Raiders running back has been up and down in 2017.
Broncos head coach Joseph Vance and general manager John Elway expressed that they preferred politics be separate from games following last week’s fixture.
With Crabtree and Cooper on the roster, it seemed unlikely that Cook would be tied for the team lead in receptions after three games, but that’s where he stands with his 13 catches.
With Crabtree unlikely to suit up against the Broncos’ vaunted pass defense, quarterback Derek Carr will likely pepper Amari Cooper with all the targets he can handle.
Lose and the Broncos would be 2-2 and in trouble as a string of road games await shortly after their bye week.
Look for the Raiders to challenge their offensive and defensive lines after getting pushed around by Washington. “I think what you see Khalil Mack do a lot of is just go right through people and crush them”. Then they played the Washington Redskins.
Will we win this game??
-Raiders WR Michael Crabtree vs. Broncos CB Aqib Talib. Crabtree never talks to the media.
What channel is Broncos vs. Raiders on? The former Fresno State Bulldog looked solid in the team’s first two games of the season but struggled mightily against the Redskins.
Two years ago, Mack sacked Brock Osweiler five times in the second half.
Gordon gained 33 yards on his final 17 carries against Denver; Elliott had the worst game of his life with 9 yards on eight carries and McCoy managed 21 yards on 14 carries. Anderson’s 32-yard run in the second quarter at Buffalo was his longest gain since December 28, 2015, when he sprinted 39 yards into the open field with a touchdown against the Bengals. In three matches against the Denver, he is averaging 3.79 yards per attempt with three touchdowns.
That’s not a awful position to be in, as Carr also has a really good offensive line ready to protect him as well. Fans can also stream the game on the NFL Sunday Ticket app.
In a game against a tough Denver defense that is among the best in the NFL, Lynch will need to take pressure off of Carr and the rest of the Raiders’ offense.
