4 reasonable expectations for the Raiders against the WFT in Week 13
Raiders defense continues to struggle
Since their loss to the New York Giants on the road, the Las Vegas Raiders have put together some atrocious defensive efforts. In fact, over the past three weeks, no other team has allowed more points, and they are starting to look like the Raiders teams of the past few seasons on that side of the ball.
Coming down the stretch run, that has to stop, especially considering the fact they play some high-powered offenses the rest of the way. On Sunday, they take on a Washington team that does not have a shortage of weapons, whether it is in the passing game, or toting the ball on the ground.
While I believe the Raiders will win this game, I do not like the matchup for this defense, as Washington has two solid running backs and an elite wide receiver in Terry McLaurin. If Taylor Heinicke gets it going in the passing game, this could be another 28-plus point allowed effort by the Raiders defense.
