What the Raiders should expect from the Carolina Panthers in Week 1
What are your predictions for Sunday?
It is so hard to gauge how this new-look Panthers roster is going to start the season with no warmup games. The Raiders have so much young talent that they will fancy their chances, and there is also the factor of having no fans at Bank of America Stadium.
If the Panthers can somehow get off to a winning start it would be a massive confidence boost. That is going to be easier said than done, and things might get worse before they get better in Carolina during the first year of their rebuild.
It certainly sounds like the Raiders have a chance to come away with the Week 1 victory according to Cat Crave expert Dean Jones. Of course, both teams are looking to rebound from a 2019 season that saw them finish outside of the playoffs, but for the Raiders, their experience may be the deciding factor on Sunday.
