Michael Crabtree vs. Orlando Scandrick
It’ll be feisty on feisty in this one on the outside. We can’t wait to see Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree compete with Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick. Without debate, it will get chippy between these two jawers. Someone’s going to make a big play on the other and the winner of that play is going to let the loser no about it.
Crabtree is coming off a game where he had a ridiculous touchdown against the Rams. Who knew that Crabtree still had that kind of agility left in the juke stick? It’s a highlight worth watching over and over again to get ready for this game. If he burns Scandrick like toast on this nationally televised game, Twitter might explode, at least for a few minutes.
It will be interesting to see new Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing to build off his well-designed game against the Rams defense against this Cowboys team. Dallas has a bunch of holes defensively to put it lightly. Scandrick is a good player, but Crabtree might have the upper hand in this matchup.
Worst case scenario, it will be an evenly matched affair between these two talkers and an on-field altercation will ensue. Given that this will be a primetime game on the NFL Network at Jerryworld, expect it to be an emotionally charged battle between these two, even in the preseason.
