Oakland Raiders vs. St. Louis Rams, the last game of the first week, all games have been hot and well worked by the offensive and defensive. This first game for the Raiders means a lot, the fans expect the team to start this season just like the previous one, everyone wants to see the Raiders win and get to the super bowl. The Rams made a good investment for this season, the owner invested a lot of money to bring in new talent to improve the team’s campaign.
Oakland Raiders: It’s our night.
Last season for the Raiders was magnificent, of that there is no doubt, after years with heavy results, in the 2017-2018 season the team closed the season with a negative record but with high expectations for the following year 6-10 -0. This year the strategy is similar, win games but ensure even more games at home, especially because they have to play at home against teams not so difficult in week one and week two (Browns), the most difficult home games will be against the Seahawks, Chiefs and Broncos.
If we look at the Raiders’ calendar for this season, they have a cleaner path to the playoffs and finals.
Derek Carr is ready for the first game, he performed well last season with 3496 yards and 22 touchdowns. This will be another special year for him, since coach Jon Gruden has all the confidence placed in him.
St. Louis Rams: Money invested, expected results.
Last season was positive for the Rams, the money was moving to buy players and the season closed with 11 wins and 6 losses, much more than the fans expected from the team. In addition the team achieved a winning streak of 4 weeks, between the sixth and tenth week (excluding the eighth), the Rams won against the Jaguars, Cardinals, Giants and Texans, just one game at home and the others as visitors. After this game against the Raiders, the team will return home to face the Cardinals, at home the Rams are favorites, especially with the acquisition of new players.
The most difficult games this season for the Rams will be against the Seahawks, Broncos, Packers, Saints, Eagles and Lions. The Rams ‘schedule is much heavier than the Raiders’ calendar.
Jared Goff had a slightly better year than Derek Carr, he surpassed the numbers of Carr especially in the touchdowns closing last season with 28 touchdowns and 3804 yards. Goff is a favorite of journalists, all week before the first week they have been talking about the talent of Jared and the possibility he has of reaching the super bowl with the Rams.
