It is the week 2nd of NFL and some big games are up this weekend. Wagering has been on peak since the start of NFL at sites like The Oakland Raiders are one of the thirty teams competing in the National Football League. Let’s take a brief look on the Raiders.

Raiders on the Rise

Oakland raiders is a professional football team competing in the National Football League as a member club which plays in American Football Conference, West Division. The home ground of the Raiders is Oakland Alameda Coliseum. Raiders have struggled in their early years but they have transformed themselves into great team now. The 2015 season of Raiders was an example of their great transformation. They set an all-time regular season record of 444-397-11. The play-offs record came out to be 25-18.

Off to a Good Start

Raiders have won their first game of the new season against the Saints. They are scheduled to play their second game of the season on 19th September against the Atlanta Falcons. The last three meeting between both the teams saw the wins of Falcons. Raiders last won against the Falcons back in 2000. Let’s take a look on the predictions of the Monday’s showdown.

With their thrilling victory over the Saints, Raiders are now confident about their offense. Since it’s a home game for Raiders, they will be more confident as compared to the Falcons. Raiders will try to run in the early stage of game and will try to run as often as the can. The defense of Justin Ellis and Dan Williams will be a strong point and it can help Khalil Mack on the outside. Julio Jones is quite a wide receiver for the falcons. He can be neutralized with the help of Sean Smith and the Raiders will surely use him in marking Jones.

Here Comes Atlanta

The game between the cornerback Desmond Trufant of the Falcons and the wide receiver of Raiders, Amari Cooper, will be an interesting one to watch. Both are the top young players of their positions in the NFL.

The good offense passing of the Falcons can create some problems for the Raiders’ defense. Raiders will have to work on their defense a little bit more if they want to secure a good win against the Falcons.
