The Oakland Raiders are taking their 2-1 record this week to Chicago to play against the Chicago Bears. Don’t underestimate the importance of this game because perception is reality in the NFL. It’s especially reality when you have a young team that gets confidence from every win they get.
And also, don’t underestimate the Bears, who I assume will have Jay Cutler quarterback until I hear otherwise. They also have receiver Alshon Jeffery back for our poor corners to worry about and tight end Martellus Bennett. You already know how the Raiders have struggled with tight ends lately and that’s something to be nervous about.
That being said, their 0-3 so they are beatable and executing the right game plan will get that done. I honestly believe the Raiders can beat most teams in the NFL if the execute the right game plan. And I believe I have the right one to beat the Bears with their starting quarterback on the road.
