I told you they were back!
A few weeks back, when I appeared on The NFL on CBS, I said put it out there: the Raiders were back and they were a playoff team. Period.
Then they went out and got cracked by Atlanta. Bad look. For them. And for me.
But they went back to work. Moved to 3-1, with all three wins on the road and they rally back on the Chargers and stabbed them in the heart. 4-1 baby!
And if the godfather were still here, he’d say it himself: just win baby. Because that’s what the Raiders do. They just find ways to win.
The Chargers just find ways to lose. And the Raiders just find ways to win.
And now we remember what Amari Cooper is capable of: specifically, smoking fools: 6 receptions, 138 yards, including a 64 yard t.d..
4-1, with a ton of swagger and belief that no matter what happens or goes wrong, they’ll find a way to win it.
Which sets up a huge home game against the Chiefs this week. The Chiefs swept them last year. They’ve won five of the last six against the Raiders: the Raiders have to have this one. Have to.
If you truly are what you think you are, what you say you are, this is one you have to have: against a divisional opponent, at home, who has handled you in recent years.
