Las Vegas vs Washington Football Team: 3 Raiders to watch in Week 13
Denzel Perryman, Linebacker
The linebacker who is second in the league in tackles will have his hands full in this contest. Heinicke has a tendency to use shorter routes to accumulate his passing yards, and we highlighted this in this week’s article talking about dual-threat running back J.D. McKissic.
Perryman has not been the best in coverage this season, however, he has been the best linebacker the Raiders have put out on the field all year long. He must be able to stop the slant passes and dump off passes in this contest if the Raiders are to have a shot at victory.
Perryman is a huge key for the Raiders here, and watch with a careful eye if he can be a force in negating the passing yardage of Taylor Heinicke. Perryman is another first-year Raiders player who has exceeded expectations in 2021, and this will be another great opportunity for him to continue his dominant ways.
