I'll take an order of this defense with a side of offense please.
It's finally here—Raiders game day. It felt like a second bye having to wait for the Raiders to take the field again since their thrilling victory over the Chargers. Let's hope the Raiders held onto some of that intensity and momentum from that game.
This game isn't a must win. Even if they lose they will still be tied for first place. But this is a game they should win. And the Raiders need to prove they can take care of business when they are supposed to.
This defense needs to come out with an effort similar to the Houston game. They need to be disciplined and sure tacklers. They need to take away the run first, and then worry about the pass.
Each player on defense needs to take of their job so that this defense can function as a team. Otherwise Adrian Peterson will run through holes and over defenders left on a island.
I've got a good feeling about this game. I hope that feeling is justified. Go Raiders!
