Don’t Let Cam Turn Into SuperCam
Last year’s MVP Cam Newton comes to town, and while he might not be putting up flashy numbers like last year, he is still the player of that level of ability and he can bring it any game.
Cam can attack you with his arm at any level of the field and is arguably the best running quarterback the game has ever seen. On the year, Cam has thrown for 2,180 yards with 11 TDs and 7 INTs.
The problem isn’t just Cam, it is also the supporting cast around him. He may have the worst offensive line in the league, which is music to the ears of Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin. If the Raiders secondary can hold off against Olsen and Contain/Spy Cam, they’ll have the opportunity for sacks all game long.
Outside of Cam’s tight end, he lacks elite talent for support. While Ginn Jr. can stretch the field, he is DHB like with his hands. Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess matchup pretty well with the Oakland cornerbacks, so that physical battles will be something to keep an eye on.
Don’t let Cam be “Super Cam” and you win, plain and simple.
The Raiders can’t rest on their laurels in this division with the Chiefs and Broncos nipping at their heels every week. They need another win here.
I could write in a key to victory about the defense every week but we are 8-2 and I couldn’t be happier.
Just Win, Baby.
