Raiders should get an interception versus Jay Cutler in primetime
It’s time. How do the Raiders not have an interception on the season? Through the first eight weeks, the Silver and Black are the only team in the NFL that has not picked off an opposing quarterback this year. How is this even possible?
Fortunately for the Raiders, Jay Cutler can and will throw picks in high stakes ball games. It’s what he does as the strong-armed, enigmatic gunslinging quarterback we’ve seen for the last decade with the Denver Broncos, the Chicago Bears and now the Dolphins.
Oakland might be depleted at cornerback on Sunday, as David Amerson, Gareon Conley and Demetrius McCray have all been ruled out due to injuries. However, Cutler has thrown picks before against worse secondaries, maybe.
With the amount of apathy that has overtaken the Miami locker room, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Raiders get more than one pick in this game. Frankly, if the Raiders can’t force an interception against the Dolphins on Sunday, they didn’t get it done. Oakland has the ability to win the turnover differential in this game, so do it.
