The Oakland Raiders will be excited to play in front of the home town crowd at Oakland Coliseum again following a rough seven-week stretch of road games. “It’s going to be rowdy, I know that,” quarterback Derek Carr said. “I think our fans miss us, and I think we miss them. We need a home game. We need to see each other, that’s for sure. We miss one another.”
The Raiders are coming off back-to-back road losses, but there’s certainly no shame in dropping games at Green Bay and Houston and I think they’ll open a much anticipated three-game homestand with a win against the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon.
Detroit snapped a three-game losing streak with a 31-26 win over the NY Giants last week, but it was far from a convincing outing. Detroit has struggled to put opposing QBs under pressure all season and Giants QB Daniel Jones was allowed to throw for 322 yards and 4 TDs with no interceptions. Oakland has allowed only eight sacks, and I have no doubt that Derek Carr will have good success against the Lions’ secondary. Additionally, Oakland ranks seventh in the NFL in rushing and is averaging a healthy 4.8 yards per carry.
Oakland’s weakness is its secondary with the team ranked 29th in passing yards allowed, but note that Detroit is one of the two teams that are worse.
