Raiders Player to Watch: Matt Flynn
There has been recent discussion that Matt is having trouble with the deep ball. Keep an eye on anything he throws past 25 yards and see if his accuracy starts to struggle.
Saints Player to Watch: Kenny Vaccaro
Just like last week, Kenny Vaccaro is my Saints player to keep your eyes on. This is one of my favorite rookies of the class and think that he is ready to do some big things this year. Let’s see if he can pick off one of those errant Matt Flynn deep passes.
Matchup to Watch: Darren McFadden vs Saints Defense
The Saints will likely see Darren McFadden get the rock a few times. He is one of the most explosive backs in the league… when he is healthy. Will the defense be able to bring him down.
Can’t vote against Drew Brees and the Saints. Drew Brees and the Saints offense get some good things going in the game and put up some nice numbers against the Raiders defense.
Saints 24, Raiders 10.
