Greetings, Raider fans! The Great Raiderdamus once again welcomes you to another exciting week of Preseason NFL football, where all the plays are made up and the points don’t matter.

We got our first taste of an actual football-like substance with last week’s Hall of Fame Game, but this week every team will be in action. One of the most intriguing matchups tonight features the Colts and the Seahawks. Andrew Luck is scheduled to play the first quarter, so let’s see if he makes it out alive against a Seattle front seven which is surely looking to make him think twice about his return to the game.

Elsewhere, the Chefs will take on the Houston Texans, as the Chefs will try to prove wrong all of Patrick Mahomes’ doubters. JJ Watt and Jadeveon Clowney will try to plant Mahomes into the Arrowhead Stadium turf. He will be the first thing anyone has ever bothered to plant in Missouri.

Also on the docket tonight we have the Browns and Giants. We can get out first look at Baker Mayfield in a Browns uniform, as well as Jarvis Landry, Carlos Hyde and Denzel Ward. We will also get a look at Saquon Barkley in blue and gray. These two franchises were so bad last year, Jason Pierre-Paul can count their combined 2017 wins on his right hand.

The Raiders don’t play until tomorrow, but until then, enjoy laughing at all the other teams in the NFL!
