Greetings, Raider Nation! There’s one more game in Week 10, and it actually means something to the Raiders as far as draft position goes. The Giants and 49ers will play tonight, and both are in line for top-five draft picks. The outcome of this game will have a huge bearing on where the Raiders pick in next year’s draft. The Giants are 1-7 and the 49ers are 2-7.
The 49ers will still be starting Nick Mullens, last seen shredding the Raiders, at quarterback. Their defensive line will be facing a pretty shoddy unit in the Giants’ offensive line. The Giants and 49ers both had high hopes coming into this season, with the 49ers starting new franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, as did the Giants with shiny new running back Saquon Barkley, but none of that has worked out so far. Barkley has been stellar for the Giants, but everyone else has been a stark disappointment and the Giants are looking ahead to next season with the promise of a second straight Top-2 draft pick on the horizon.
You can watch tonight’s game on ESPN at 5:20 PM Pacific, or stream on WatchESPN.
