Two weak spots from Week One—the running game and the defense—could struggle again in Week Two if Maurice Jones-Drew and Nick Roach can’t get healthy in time to face the Houston Texans at the Coliseum on Sunday.
The Oakland Raiders gave up 402 yards in their opener against the New York Jets on the road, even though they gave up just 19 points. Some of that was due to the Jets QB struggling to hold on to the ball, of course, but the Silver & Black defense will need to be a lot tougher at home in Week Two for the Raiders to emerge victorious against an efficient Houston Texans offense.
Even though he will be 38 in October and well past his prime, safety Charles Woodson has the ability to lead the Oakland Raiders defense this season to a level the team hasn’t seen in awhile.
A person with knowledge of the deal says Woodson is expected to officially sign the contract on Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the signing yet. ESPN first reported the deal.
