The preseason is not a big deal, bur this game is somewhat special. This will be the first time these two franchises have met in the preseason since 2011. The summer series between the former two Bay Area rivals was scuttled because of excessive fan violence.
Hopefully, everyone has learned from the past and cooler heads prevail in the stands.
A lot has changed since the last time these teams played in the preseason. The 49ers play in Santa Clara and no longer in San Francisco. The Raiders are now, of course, no longer in Oakland, but in Las Vegas.
Let’s hope everyone has a great game.
