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.

Prediction

The Redskins finally get a win on the road, despite their awful defense. Redskins 21, Raiders 20
