Raiders vs Panthers Preview

In what may be one of the more intriguing coaching battles of Week 1, Jon Gruden, who is trying to get his team into the postseason for the first time since his arrival three years ago, will try to out-duel Matt Rhule in his first-ever game as a head coach in the NFL. Rhule said this week that he has considered Gruden to be a mentor of sorts, noting he received loads of advice from the current Raiders coach when he was at Temple. Now, they’ll be on opposite sides of the field.

One thing Gruden knows for sure? His defense will be seeing a lot of All-Pro, All-Everything running back Christian McCaffrey. “They’re going to get the ball to him any way they can,” Gruden said about Carolina’s game plan, and he’s not wrong. McCaffrey had over 1,000 yards both rushing and receiving last year, and he also tallied 19 touchdowns. He’s one of the league’s most dynamic players, and he’ll be going up against a Raiders defense that allowed over 26 points and 354 total yards a game last season — but this isn’t the same Raiders defense.

Las Vegas entirely revamped the middle of their ‘D’, bringing in two speedy and hard-hitting linebackers in Cory Littleton and Nick Kwiatkoski. They also added Ohio State cornerback Damon Arnette in the first round of the draft. All three are expected to start, and Kwiatkoski, especially, will be one to watch against McCaffrey. The 27-year-old linebacker had a breakout season with the Bears last year, and his speed and ability to stop the run should affect this game immediately.

Safety Johnathan Abram said last week that the presence of the two linebackers alone has made a world of difference. “It looks like day and night, truthfully,” Abram said. “We’ve gotten faster on every single position on offense and defense. But the linebacker core does stick out.”

The Panthers also went out and made some changes this offseason, signing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year, $63 million contract. Bridgewater broke out in a big way last year when he filled in for an injured Drew Brees, starting five games and going 5-0, while also throwing for 1,384 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions.

It will be interesting to see how Bridgewater responds to the call in his first full season as a starter since 2015, and it will be equally interesting to see how a new-look Raiders defense tries to contain McCaffrey. It should be a close game, and could be a back-and-forth battle that may come down to the final possession.
