Raiders: 3 Washington Football Team players to worry about in Week 13
By Alex Perl
The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Washington Football Team in Week 13, and here are three players they need to be worried about in the matchup.
The Washington Football team will be visiting the Las Vegas Raiders during a three-game winning streak, and they have looked great in the process. Over the past three wins, Taylor Heinicke and company have beaten Tom Brady, Cam Newton, and Russell Wilson, and will now try and take down Derek Carr and this Raiders offense.
The Raiders themselves come into this game on a high as well, this after a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving ended a three-game losing streak. It has been a rough go since the bye week for the Raiders, but that was a huge win on Thursday and could springboard them into making a real run at a playoff spot.
The Silver and Black can go two games over .500 with a win in this contest and set up a highly anticipated rematch in Week 14 with the divisional leader Kansas City Chiefs. Washington has their own personal reasons for winning as well, as they are nipping at the heels of the NFC East leaders in the Dallas Cowboys.
There is a slew of players that may pose problems for the Raiders in this matchup, but I will look at three the Raiders must worry about to prevail with a victory on Sunday afternoon.
