Greetings, Raider fans! Welcome to more of NFL Preseason Week 2, In Which Defensive Coordinators Start Blitzing Rookie Quarterbacks. Sam Darnold may have looked like a world-beater in Week 1, but give Greg Manusky some film and he’ll blitz the promise right out of a young quarterback.
Look for the Browns to do the same to Josh Allen tonight and for the Bills to put pressure on Baker Mayfield when the two teams face off on the NFL Network at 4:30 PM Pacific. The number one overall pick played in the Big XII for his entire college career and has never faced an actual defense, except for the semifinal against Georgia last year.
Also on the slate for today, the Chefs travel to Robotic Butthole Stadium to take on the Falcons. It doesn’t matter how well Chiefs QB Kermit the Fraud plays, because nobody will be in attendance. Tickets are available at Stubhub for $14, and I am not making this up.
