Before their preseason matchup against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday night, the Las Vegas Raiders will have two joint practices with them.
The Las Vegas Raiders will be flying to Los Angeles this week to have joint practices with the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are a Super Bowl-contending team, which means this will be a major test for a young Raiders squad, especially for their defense.
The Rams acquired Quarterback Matthew Stafford this offseason, as the team sought an upgrade from Jared Goff. The team will also return 3=three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, All-Star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, and more.
The Raiders starters will finally have a chance to play football in a competitive situation and with it being against a legitimate title contender, this gave the Raiders coaches a chance to evaluate their roster more. Remember, Sean McVay has already said Stafford will not play in the preseason, so this will be a better test than the team will get Saturay nigt.
With that said, let us take a look at some Raiders to keep an eye on during the joint practices.
