Bottom Line

Marcel Reece should be a small-but-big part of the game plan every week. He shouldn’t be a 20-touch-per game type of guy to after feeling a team out, he should be used to make big plays. It’s obviously important to get the other weapons on the offense going first before surprising the defense.

Otherwise, a heavy dose of Murray to set up Cooper down the field is a good part of the game plan. From there, the field will be stretched for Crabtree and whoever’s at tight end to move the chains. With the chains moved, that maintains possession for the Raiders and more carries for Murray.

And the defense is as simple has bump-and-run behind the blitz with Smith and Mack on the edges. If the Raiders are to win the game, this is how they are going to have to do it.
