Las Vegas Raiders dismissed the key members of their backroom staff including their General Manager and this ultimately proved dividends as they put in a strong performance against a troubled New York Giants team 30 points to 6.
Touchdowns from Meyers, and two from running back Josh Jacobs gave the Las Vegas Raiders a huge win after back to back defeats to the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
Scoring 30 points at home is massive and this can give the team the springboard to put in another strong offensive performance this week. However, they will come up against a much stronger defence than the New York Giants.
New York Jets are known for a tough defence and they will play hard and aim to stop the running game of the Raiders. This means O’Connell at quarterback will have to throw the ball well and with a lot of pressure coming, remain calm and not turn over the ball.
Should he be able to keep his composure then the Raiders have a big chance to secure back to back wins. Davante Adams is a key player for O’Connell and with tons of experience, making regular first downs can help Raiders grow in the game.
Kicking wise Carlson is a reliable field goal kicker, so this should work well as if Raiders get into Jets territory, Carlon can keep the score ticking if they fail to secure a touchdown.
Raiders have won three home games in a row against New York Giants, New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers and although none of these teams has a positive record this season, Raiders still got the job done and they can do so again.
New York Jets had won 3 games in a row before losing at home to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night and the short week may not work in their favour.
The three wins before that included an overtime win over the Giants at home, beating Philadelphia Eagles at home, which was the biggest scalp of them all, and then going to Denver and winning.
It promises to be a bruising and low scoring encounter, but the freshness of the Raiders and the fact they are solid enough at home, can secure them a big win in the hope of qualifying for the play-offs
