Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns: 3 players to watch in Week 8
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders will look to get over .500 Sunday against Cleveland, and here are three members of the Silver and Black to keep an eye on.
The Cleveland Browns have enough talent on both sides of the ball to make this an interesting game on Sunday, as they welcome the Las Vegas Raiders to FirstEnergy Stadium. After a week that included COVID-19 issues, the Raiders were embarrassed by Tampa Bay, and will be looking to get back on track against a 5-2 Browns squad.
Here are three Raiders to keep an eye on this Sunday.
Henry Ruggs III
The last time the Raiders took on the Browns, they pushed the ball downfield, and on Sunday, look for them to do the same. Free agent signing Nelson Agholor has proven to be a big play guy since putting on the Silver and Black, and he will be joined once again in the lineup by rookie Henry Ruggs.
Ruggs has shown big-play ability every game he has played in, and on Sunday, he will likely draw star Browns cornerback Denzel Ward. Look for the Raiders to try and get Ruggs involved early, counting on his speed on a wet surface, and my expectation is him getting more than his usual three targets.
