While the questions have been floating on whether or not Jalen Hurts or Joe Flacco should be starting under center for the Philadelphia Eagles this week, there is certainly no question about Las Vegas Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia and offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
Jon Gruden who?
Now that the email saga is in the rearview mirror, at least as far as the team is concerned, the team is back to winning, as we saw in a dominant performance against the Denver Broncos. Next up is Philadelphia, which continues to stumble over itself offensively, and will have a hard time moving the ball against one of the best defensive lines in the league.
Defensive end Maxx Crosby is the No. 1 graded edge rusher in the league, per Pro Football Focus. Defensive back Casey Hayward has the most coverage snaps without allowing a TD this season (237), per PFF.
On offense, again per PFF, Carr's 18 completions and 603 yards and 17 big-time throws - all on 20+ yard tosses - ranks No. 1 in the league.
With Olson calling a diverse game plan, spreading the wealth evenly to receiving targets, and utilizing Kenyan Drake out of the backfield along with Josh Jacobs, it'll be hard for the Eagles to slow this team down once it finds its groove.
Jacobs and Drake will do a good job in setting up the play action, and it will certainly open things up for Carr to find the likes of Darren Waller, Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow... the list goes on.
The Raiders have put the distractions aside, and off last week's win will feed off the home crowd. Meanwhile, Philly will continue to struggle. The only question is who will Crosby sack more times: Hurts or Flacco?
Lay the points with Las Vegas, and buy the half point down.
