The Las Vegas Raiders wrap up their 2022 preseason with a matchup against New England, who they just got done practicing with this week.
Over the past few days, the Las Vegas Raiders have been battling it out with the New England Patriots in joint practices. By all accounts, Las Vegas has done a terrific job against the Pats, practices that have featured Patriots head coach Bill Belichick against his mentor and new Raiders head coach, Josh McDaniels.
While these have been spirited workouts, preseason game No. 4 will be a game that will feature guys desperately trying to crack the Raiders’ 53-man roster for Week 1. Las Vegas has plenty of players on the chopping block, as they currently have 80 men on the roster, so this is the final dress rehearsal for a lot of players.
Some guys may not make the Las Vegas roster, but they are always putting things on film for other coaching staffs to look at, and we have already seen some surprise cuts, and even trades this preseason. Friday night is the final game before the regular season kicks off in what should be an exciting season of football.

As is the case with most preseason games, do not expect to see the stars tonight against the Patriots, as Las Vegas is certain to sit out the likes of Derek Carr, Maxx Crosby, and Davante Adams among others. The Raiders are also dealing with some uncertainty when it comes to Darren Waller, so that is something to keep an eye on as we inch closer to the season opener against the Chargers.
The biggest question for the Raiders all offseason was how the offensive line will shake out, and it looks like the starting five has finally taken shape.
Tonight, many players will be making their final push to make the roster, so sit tight and enjoy one more preseason game before the real party gets started in September.
