Raiders Injuries: Jimmy Garoppolo returns at starting QB
The Raiders will get the return of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in this one, this after the veteran missed the Chicago Bears game due to back injury. It was the second game Garoppolo has already missed this season, so the hope is that he can return and right the wrongs of the offense from a week ago.
On the Detroit side, they will once again be without running back David Montgomery, who has rounded into one of the more productive backs in the NFC this season.
Raiders will need a near-perfect effort on Monday night
Even without Montgomery, the Lions are considered one of the better teams in the NFC, and they have really improved as a franchise under head coach Dan Campbell. The Raiders will have a tough task on Monday night, as the offense sputtered in a big way last week against Chicago, and we saw the defense take a big step backward.
The hope is that the return of Garoppolo can help get the run game going, and the loss of Montgomery affects the Lions offense like it did a week ago in a 38-6 loss at Baltimore. The Raiders will have to play a near-perfect game to come out of Ford Field with the victory, so the smart money is on Detroit in primetime.
