Oak­land Raiders


Inside Sport - - PUNTER’S CHANCE -

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.
