Last week, we went through some interesting fights for positions for the Oakland Raiders starting with Round 1. And since their joint practices with the Dallas Cowboys were more intense than Week 2’s preseason game, they count as Round 2. Plus if you noticed the changes that were made to the starting lineup in the preseason game last Friday, you know they had to count for something.

So I went back through the reports of the practices and continued unto the game as Round 3 of these fights. Again, this is my unofficial scorecard because just like Las Vegas judges, NFL coaches have agendas. So there’s no way I would know what the coaches see in these rounds until way after the fact.

So turn the page to see my unofficial scorecard.
