Well boys and girls, our long Raider Nation-al nightmare is over. After a long offseason of asking ourselves what might have been had QB Derek Carr not broken his leg, a new and exciting chapter in Oakland Raiders football is about to begin as the 2017 season dawns tonight.
The Beast Mode Experience gets under way in Glendale as Carr, Marshawn Lynch and the rest of the Silver & Black begin their quest to dethrone the Patriots and return balance to the Force, in the form of the Dark Side conquering everything in its path.
Talk about the game in here, and as always, go Raiders!
