Oakland Raiders: Five games most likely to be in primetime in 2019
Jacksonville Jaguars (Home)
Looking at who the Raiders will play host to in 2019 you’ll notice there aren’t any powerhouse teams. Outside of the division of course, the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions are two matchups that won’t even sniff national recognition.
However, there is one team that can warrant a primetime game in Oakland. That team is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who join the Vikings as the face of disappointment in 2018. With Blake Bortles at quarterback it’s no wonder they couldn’t sustain success. However, the Jaguars have significantly upgraded at quarterback by signing Nick Foles.
His addition makes their offense relevant again and eases the pressure on Leonard Fournette. Jacksonville’s defense is sure to bounce back in 2019, so pound for pound against the Raiders offense will make it an exciting game. The most intriguing matchup that will be a primetime seller is Antonio Brown versus Jalen Ramsey.
The best against the best will always reel in people’s attention. I’d call this game worthy of a Monday night set up with the hype surrounding Brown and Ramsey.
