It’s going to be a huge battle in the Nation’s capital as the Oakland Raiders will head to Washington to face the Redskins.
The Oakland Raiders are currently undefeated as they took care of the New York Jets in Week 2, while the Washington Redskins went across the nation to beat the Los Angeles Rams in a hard-fought battle.
Which Washington team will the Raiders see? Week 1 or Week 2?
The Oakland Raiders are returning back to form as they have one of the best offenses in the league. In the first two games, the Raiders have put up 71 total points as they have yet to be slowed down.
Will Washington be able to slow them down? Most likely not, however it will give this Oakland team a true challenge on the road as their week 2 home win against the Jets was basically a preseason game.
Oakland seems to have also unleashed a new secret weapon as well. Wide receiver and special teamed Cordarrelle Patterson had himself an afternoon to remember Sunday.
Patterson’s had three carries in the Week 2 win including a 43-yard scoring run in which he showed his blazing speed. Along with making a 6-yard catch, he also received three kicks and returned them a total of 70 yards.
Running back Marshawn Lynch also ran for his first home touchdown with the Oakland Raiders as Derek Carr also put up three touchdown passes.
With the Raiders offense mostly on the field, it gave the defense a well rested afternoon as they barely had to stay out long with the poor Jets offense.
The Washington Redskins were destroyed by the Philadelphia Eagles in their Week 1 matchup, as they looked flat all game and had so many questions to be answered. One of those questions was if the running game was going to suffer yet another season?
For the Redskins, they answered that question with a huge week 2 performance on the ground against the Los Angeles Rams. In their huge 27-20 win, Washington ran the ball for over 229 rushing yards.
Los Angeles couldn’t stop the ran and Washington continued to expose the Rams new 3-4 defensive scheme all afternoon.
Rob Kelley finished the night with 78 yards on 12 carries, with exciting the game early with a rib injury.
Filling in for Kelley was Samaje Perine who finished with 67 yards on 21 carries. However that’s not all as the nail in the coffin before halftime was Chris Thompson who scored a 61 rushing touchdown with less than a minute left. Thompson finished with 77 yards.
As a team Washington rushed the ball for 39 times as they had a 5.9 average on the day.With that high of average quarterback Kirk Cousins only had to complete a couple of key passes to get the win.
As for the defense, they sacked quarterback Jared Goff twice with also getting the key interception to win the game.
