Stud: Rodney Hudson
In a season of inconsistencies and frustration, Rodney Hudson has been a constant for the Oakland Raiders. Week in, week out Hudson shows up and plays with pride, desire and fire. Once again, Hudson held the Titans to zero sacks and zero QB hits while also clearing rushing lanes for the Raiders’ running backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard.
Hudson’s leadership and play has made him one of the top centers in the NFL and his performance on Sunday helped to show that. This is a Raiders offensive line that played well throughout the game on Sunday, and like he does every week, Hudson was the anchor.
Oakland re-signed Hudson to an extension this season, and rightfully so, as he is one of the premier players in the game at his position. Landing Hudson in free agency a few years back was quite the stroke of genius, and this Raiders offensive line would not function without him.
