Las Vegas Raiders at New York Giants: 3 Raiders to watch in Week 9
I’m really calling on the leaders in the locker room to be some of the more important players on Sunday, though not every player is going to perform to the best of their ability every week because they are human, and they have good days and bad days just like you and I, and go through very real things in their lives.
Now, think about the emotions you felt hearing the news trickle out throughout the day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and even Thursday. It was hard to read, hard to imagine, and just difficult to digest, and that’s with somebody that we don’t even know personally.
Now imagine it’s somebody you’ve spent a bunch of time with, and actually really love, that’s what the Raiders players are going through at the moment. But like I said at the beginning of the article, they are still playing this game on Sunday, so now the leaders are going to have to step up and not only lead this team in the locker room, but also on the field.
The Las Vegas Raiders take on the New York Giants in Week 9 of the 2021 NFL season, and here are three G-Men to worry about in the contest.
When it comes to the Raiders, you can look no further than players like Carr, and defensive end Maxx Crosby for leadership. Crosby knows first-hand what alcohol can do, or potentially do to someone’s life, so while he may be playing with a heavy heart on Sunday, you can be sure he is going to bring it.
