Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts in a winnable matchup and an opportunity to turn the season around. Here are three things to watch out for in a must-win for the Oakland Raiders.
After a big win against a division rival in their season opener, the Oakland Raiders sit at 1-2 with two bad losses back-to-back. Granted, the Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings are among the well-built teams in the NFL, and the Raiders are not without their injuries, but the manner in which they lost was troubling.
Oakland has a ways to go in turning the team around as a whole, but they want to stay competitive on a weekly basis. Good news, Week 4 is an opportunity to steer the season back onto the right track, and it is very much a winnable game.
Despite being on the road once again, the Indianapolis Colts are facing injuries on offense and in the secondary. That should bode well for the Raiders, and if Jon Gruden is a man of his word, and hopes to adjust the offensive gameplan, Oakland can very much get their second victory of the season.
In order to go 2-2, the Raiders must address these three things ahead of Sunday, so be sure to watch out for these in Indianapolis.
