Game Preview: Raiders vs. Vikings

The Vikings are good again, with Adrian Peterson back in the lineup and Teddy Bridgewater, picked just four slots ahead of Derek Carr in last year’s draft, developing into a solid quarterback. Minnesota also has a solid defense, ranking in the top ten in points, pass yards, and total yards allowed.

After last week’s close but nasty loss in Pittsburgh, the Raiders needs are clear — defense, defense, defense. Stop someone, anyone, everyone. Get a good pass rush on Bridgewater, contain AP, keep a balanced offensive attack, and there’s no reason Oakland can’t beat a likely wild card team. This could be a nice game for the Raiders to bounce back in front of a home crowd.
