Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders vs. Los Angeles Rams

It will take time to see if what the second regime of Jon Gruden with the Raiders will net, so that’s a fair warning to stray away from the Raiders in general. Facing a star-studded defense could be another.

Where the Rams improved (the secondary and the defensive line) nullify what moves the Raiders did in trying to get experience on the offensive side of the ball. Add to it, Gruden’s complex offense could still take some time for Carr to iron out. – Ernie Estrella
