Just as Al Davis would have wanted it the Oakland Raiders will take the field today against the Houston Texans. To honor their iconic owner, the Raiders will wear a decal on their helmets.
We’re just 24 hours removed from hearing the news of the passing of Mr. Davis and I’m still shook up. So I can only imagine what the emotions must be like in Hue Jackson’s locker room.
This still feels very surreal. For me this marks my first ever Sunday without Al Davis watching from the owner’s box. Once the game starts I’m sure things will start to feel more normal. At least we know Mr. Davis will still be watching. The only difference is this time his view will be even better.
