With the first preseason game just a few Sundays away, here’s a brief recap of the events occurring around the AFC.
As July begins, and kickoff weekend just 67 days away, much has happened in the NFL in the past week. Here’s a closer look at the headlines from the AFC squads this past week.
The Oakland Raiders have now lost four straight after they got embarrassed Sunday by the Bengals, 34-10. It was just ugly and there’s no way to sugarcoat how poorly the team is playing during this stretch. Frustrations boiled over with a bench-clearing brawl in the fourth quarter.
The Raiders will again be without Darren McFadden, Mike Goodson, or Richard Seymour. Oakland once again will rely heavily on quarterback Carson Palmer and fullback Marcel Reece on offense. Defensively, Tyvon Branch is back after missing last week’s game with a neck injury.
It’s a much anticipated game Sunday between the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders. It’s the first time for Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer to face his former team, and it’s the same for Cincinnati assistant coach Hue Jackson vs. the Raiders. Oakland has lost all three of its East Coast time zone games. The Raiders are just 5-25 in East Coast games since 2003.
One game in, the San Francisco 49ers’ trip is already worth writing home about.
