4 reasonable expectations for the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 6
Raiders Offense Will Play With Higher Level of Physicality.
Sunday against the Bears was one of the worst offensive performances of the Jon Gruden era. The offensive line lost at the point of attack nearly every single play, Derek Carr’s time was spent either running for his life or on the ground and the receiving group appeared to have a major lack of focus and frankly just got bullied by the Bears defensive backs.
Waller, Renfrow, and especially Bryan Edwards had multiple drops that could’ve changed the tide of this game multiple times. Usually, when a team gets physically dominated, they do not like to have that happen two weeks in a row.
Expect the Raiders offense to come out with a new found sense of physical play, just like the Dolphins did against the Raiders in Week 3 after they got blown out by the Buffalo Bills. This is a team that has a lot to prove and wants to shift the focus back to the field, which they can do with a dominant, physical performance against the Broncos on the road in Week 6.
