The Las Vegas Raiders take on the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium this weekend, here are 5 things to watch for in the final preseason matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders are gearing up to face the San Francisco 49ers in their final preseason matchup this year. The Raiders are 2-0 and have a chance to run the preseason table against the 1-1 Niners. Of course, preseason records don’t matter and the more important things to watch for are player development, who wins the final roster spots, and which backups get a chance to show what they can do.
Many of the Raiders’ starting positions are set on both sides of the ball but there are plenty of players that can solidify a starting role or prove they deserve more than a place on the practice squad. Several rookies, in particular, will be looking to show out and prove that the Raiders made the right decision in drafting them.
The Raiders are also making their first trip back to the Bay Area since their move to Las Vegas and will be looking to put on a show for their loyal fanbase.
Here are 5 things for Raider Nation to watch for against SF and we start with a player that has been very popular with the fans despite limited playing time during his Raider career.
