The Las Vegas Raiders head east to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, and here are three members of the Steelers to worry about.
After beating an AFC North foe in Week 1, defeating the Baltmore Ravens in overtime inside Allegiant Stadium, the Las Vegas Raiders will now head east to take on another AFC North team in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Like the Silver and Black, the Steelers are also going into this game fresh off a win in Week 1, as they looked very good in beating the Buffalo Bills.
As we inch closer to kickoff at 10:00 a.m. PT, we take a look at three members of the Steelers that Raider Nation has to worry about.
Las Vegas Raiders: 3 Pittsburgh Steelers to worry about in Week 2
Minkah Fitzpatrick, Safety
We start off in the Steelers secondary, where they have a lot of solid weapons, including one of the best safeties in the game. Traded to Pittsburgh from the Miami Dolphins, Minkah Fitzpatrick has become a star wearing the Black and Yellow, and Derek Carr will have to know where he is on every play on Sunday.
Fitzpatrick is not only a safety who takes away half of the secondary, but he is also very opportunistic, and is not afraid to also come up and make a big hit. If the Raiders hope to go deep to the likes of Henry Ruggs III or Bryan Edwards in this game, Carr might want to see where Fitzpatrick is before he lets it rip.
