The 1-2 Raiders, coming off a short week, host the winless Redskins on Sunday. Terrelle Pryor is expected to play after sustaining a concussion against the Broncos last Monday night.
Here is a full breakdown of Sunday’s game.

Raiders Player to Watch: Darren McFadden
The Redskins defense will have to at least slow down McFadden. Due to poor tackling and blown assignments, the Redskins pass defense and run defense have both been putting up historically low numbers.
McFadden can exploit holes and break tackles like Joique Bell, James Starks, and LeSean McCoy have done each of the last three weeks.
Redskins Player to Watch: Pierre Garcon
Garcon’s excellent play this season has been lost in the Redskins’ poor start. He looks to have a big day against an average Raiders secondary.
Matchup to Watch: Darren McFadden vs. London Fletcher
As much as the Redskins faithful hates to admit it, the heart of the defense, London Fletcher, has lost a step as he inches closer towards 40 years old.
Darren McFadden can be expected to get plenty of carries today especially in the trenches – Fletcher needs to make tackles in the open field.
The Redskins finally get a win on the road, despite their awful defense. Redskins 21, Raiders 20
