This game is being touted as the highest scoring game of the week, which usually means that both offenses will have difficulty getting into sync. Either way, the game boasts some major offensive playmakers on both teams. Look out for the Derek Carr to Amari Cooper combo, as well as the Drew Brees to Willie Snead connection.
No one knows if this game is going to be a shootout. The Saints are improved on defense and so are the Raiders. These teams aren’t used to each other, so they may take some time getting used to each other.
New Orleans 34 Oakland 31 – Brees is a bit more comfortable with his teammates than Carr is with here and that will show in the 4th quarter.
