The Oakland Raiders have gotten off to a 2-2 start to the 2019 campaign, and we take a look at the four games, give out awards, and look ahead.

As the Oakland Raiders closed out the first quarter mark with a 31-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts, we take a look back on the first four games, the first quarter MVP, most improved player,  and biggest disappointment.

We start out by looking at the four games that have opened the season, recapping each one.

Week 1 vs. Denver Broncos

When the Raiders took the field Monday night in the regular season home opener, we saw a team that was dialed in, and playing with purpose. Fueled by the energy of the fans at the Coliseum, and the bold statement of playing without disgraced wide receiver Antonio Brown, who was released two days prior.

The Raiders newest editions truly shined in their first night in the Silver and Black, with Clelin Ferrell, Johnathan Abram, Tyrell Williams and Josh Jacobs all making impactful plays. In a game where the offensive line held one of the NFL’s best pass rushing duo’s in Bradley Chubb and Von Miller to zero sacks, and the Raiders offense was able to move the ball at will, Raider Nation began to build excitement around the season.

Final Score: Raiders 24, Broncos 16
