Here’s the oddity of the preseason: Oakland a racted an unusual amount of Super Bowl be ing action. This is a nice team, with a promising QB in Derek Carr and pass-rushing dynamo Khalil Mack. But the surge in Vegas seemed out of proportion – was this an overexcited response to the silver-and-black’s move to Sin City in two seasons’ time? One would think gamblers aren’t merely swayed by the prospect of the Las Vegas Raiders, but there are worse bets to be made. Dependability has hardly been this ball club’s calling card, but we can thank them for one thing – the weirdly wonderful Marshawn Lynch (below), a Raider by nature if there ever was one, is back in the NFL.
