On the debut episode of Inside the Oakland Raiders, Bay Area News Group’s Courtney Cronin, Jimmy Durkin and Jerry McDonald dive into Week 3 of the preseason and the Raiders major areas of focus: enabling the run, stopping the run and getting to the quarterback.
Oakland faces Tennessee in Week 3 of the regular season, so Saturday’s matchup serves as more than a tune up against a team the Raiders will face in the not too distant future. While the Raiders won’t show much against the Titans, this week serves as a dress rehearsal for the start of the 2016 campaign.
Our crew also takes a look at potential cuts Oakland will make when teams across the NFL shrink from 90 to 75 players on the active roster next week. Which Raiders would benefit the most from a monster Week 3 performance to increase their chances of making the cut? The answer to this question and more is inside this episode.
