Ravens vs. Raiders Game Info
The Ravens suffered one of the most notable season-ending injuries of the preseason, with running back J.K. Dobbins now out. They decided to fully promote within, but the injury bug had other plans. In the end, the top three running backs on their depth chart were knocked out for the season, as was cornerback Marcus Peters. Still, this should be a solid offense, and their defense should be just as good. The secondary likes to gamble, but they will make plays all season long and will be one of the more exciting defenses this season.
It is another season under Jon Gruden and another season in which the Raiders will likely exceed expectations. Maybe it is not saying much since the Gruden criticisms are pushing team expectations extremely low, but the record has improved every season under him, and he finds a way to make the Raiders competitive consistently despite featuring one of the worst defenses every season. While they look slightly improved, depth is an issue. Still, this may not be the cakewalk some feel for the Ravens, especially playing in Las Vegas.
