I’m trying out this quick-and-dirty game preview where I give you a current screenshot of how both teams are doing on either side of the ball ahead of the week’s matchup, along with the top performers for both teams.

Heading into Monday night, both team’s are moving the ball at will while the Raiders have been able to find the end zone several more times over the past three weeks. Both enjoy slinging the ball around the field and both enjoy limiting their opponents from doing the same.
