Oakland Raiders: Project with a future.
The Raiders had no luck this season, it’s the first year with Gruden, 4-11-0. The amount of criticism towards Gruden was by Khalil Mack, but Gruden has all the first round picks he needs to put together the team for the next season. Last week the Raiders won against the Broncos 27-14, and in this same month they won against the Steelers 24-21. The Raiders started the season on the road losing the first four games.
Derek Carr, as we talked about Carr last week in monday night football, is a good QB but the defense does not support him. The leaders in rushing are Doug Martin with 623 yards and 4 TDs, Marshawn Lynch with 376 yards and 3 TDs, and the last one is Jalen Richard with 258 yards and 1 TD. The Chiefs allow 134.9 rush yards per game, it’s an advantage for the Raiders.
