The Las Vegas Raiders 0-2 will attempt their first win under new coach Josh McDaniels on Sunday when they visit the 0-2 Tennessee Titans.
Let’s look at five keys to the game:
Play the full game:
Raiders will try to get rid of the stench of the biggest collapse in team history in this game. The Raiders became the fifth NFL team to blast a 20-0 lead at halftime in a 29-23 home overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals at Allegiant Stadium. The attackers were great in the first half on both sides of the ball, but in the second half and overtime, the attack stopped and the defense backed down. Earlier this week, Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels said the team needs to learn how to play hard when they have the lead. This should happen, starting with this game.
Find Davant Adams’ cool spot:
It was Davante Adams’ first two weird matches as Raiders. In a week one loss at The Chargers, Adams was the featured offensive player from Las Vegas as he had 10 catches for 141 yards on 17 goals. Against the Cardinals, though, Adams only had two 12-yard stops on seven goals. Yes, the Raiders have a lot of guns and they’re figuring things out, but Adams has to be a focal point of this crime every week.
Contains Derek Henry:
After a solid game in defense against the Charger, the Cardinal Raiders let a run (Keller Murray would do so to defend) as Arizona had 143 yards on the ground. This week, the assignment is Derek Henry, the most punished runner in the NFL. The Giants win with Henry leading the way. He can eat around the clock and defeat the defense. The invaders can’t let Henry take over this game. He hasn’t been great this season having only 25 yards against the Bills on Monday and has only 107 yards in two games. But still, he should be a focal point of Patrick Graham’s defense.
Feed Jacobs every game:
Like everything else, the Conquerors had first-half ground success against the Cardinal after not getting into a groove in the first week. with everything else. The Raiders need to keep the Jacobs, who have 126 yards in 29 holds this season, part of their offensive game plan for all four seasons against the Titans, especially since the weather could be rainy. According to the Associated Press, shifters throw the ball 70 percent of the time, the second-most in the NFL. More balance is needed.
It will be interesting to see how both teams, both desperate for a win, react to some outside challenges. In addition to trying to shake off the trauma of losing Arizona, the Raiders will play their first game of the season starting at 10 a.m. their time. This often affects teams from the West Coast. However, the Giants are out of their Monday night road match in Buffalo, so they will have their own challenges. The team that mods the fastest should have an advantage.
