Football is back and this is a game without many headlines. Both teams lack star power – with Cam Newton obviously sitting out – Rookie Josh Allen will be the headline attraction in this one.
He’ll take center stage and we’ll see how he performs in this one.
It seems that in preseason Jake Rudock is a bit of a fantasy darling. Rudock, obviously, doesn’t get much playing time with Matt Stafford starting in basically every game, so Rudock makes his presence known in preseason.
He’ll be someone to watch in game one.
Zach Zenner is another player who performs well in preseason, look for him to get a good portion of snaps at halfback. With this being Matt Patricia’s first preseason game, we’ll have to see how the defense performs.
They’ve been looking good, especially the defensive backs according to reports. Let’s see if that translates in game action.
When you look at the Oakland Raiders, they have a lot of names. If this was 2013, this would be a great looking team. Jordy Nelson, Amari Cooper, Derrick Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, and Doug Martin.
This were prime time performers from years back. I wouldn’t expect to see much of them in game one of preseason.
Connor Cook and E.J. Manuel will be battling it out for the backup quarterback role.
The Raiders invested a lot of capital on the defensive line. Arden Key, P.J. Hall, and Maurice Hurst all will get some time in game one and we’ll see how they do.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 36
Past history doesn’t matter much given that these are two new coaching staffs. All in all, I’m not expecting much in this one. I’d probably say Oakland wins, but I’m not expecting much offense in this one.
Best bet is probably the under.
