The Las Vegas Raiders wrap up their 2021 preseason slate against San Francisco, and here are three bold predictions for the matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders will be looking to wrap up the preseason slate on Sunday with a win, as they travel to the Bay Area to take on the San Francisco 49ers. It has been a pretty successful summer so far for the Raiders, though the injury bug has bitten too many times recently, and the regular season cannot get here soon enough.
With that said, there is still one game to be played, and some bold predictions are always fun.
Las Vegas Raiders at San Francisco: 3 bold predictions in 2021 Preseason Game No. 3
Trey Ragas runs wild against the 49ers defense
The Las Vegas Raiders have gotten a pleasant surprise from some undrafted rookie running backs this summer, as both Trey Ragas and B.J. Emmons have been battling it out for a roster spot. On Sunday, they will be taking on the best defense they will have seen, as the 49ers plan to play their starters, giving these two young backs a real test.
For Ragas, it won’t matter, as his bruising style of running works against any defense, and he will prove to be the better back in this one. In fact, I like Ragas to have a game like he did against Seattle on Saturday, showing that he is ready to make this Raiders 53-man roster, and finishing as the leading rusher in the contest.
