Los Angeles Rams vs Oakland Raiders Live
As we all know, September 1st, 2018 will live on as a day of infamy for Raiders fans for years to come. Khalil Mack was traded to the Chicago Bears, causing widespread pandemonium throughout the NFL. But we aren’t here to beat the dead horse, we are here to look ahead to Week 1, and discuss some of the more intriguing matchups to watch for.
The first week of the 2018 NFL season wraps up tonight with an exciting Monday Night Football doubleheader. The action starts up with the Detroit Lions hosting the New York Jets in the Motor City, followed by the Los Angeles Raiders traveling to the Black Hole to face the Oakland Raiders. Here’s a look at the full schedule, start times, television info, live stream site and updated odds for both contests:
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is set to (kind of) make his debut with the franchise on Monday night. It’s more a homecoming for the coach-turned-ESPN analyst-turned-coach-again, since he previously led the team from 1998 to 2001.
The Jets only won two games after Week Five last season despite a 3-2 start, finishing 5-11 and earning the sixth overall NFL Draft pick. They moved up to number three to select quarterback Sam Darnold, and the rookie impressed enough in the preseason to earn the starting gig. This is the team’s fourth season under head coach Todd Bowles, who has a 20-28 record.
2017 was the fourth and final year under head coach Jim Caldwell for the Lions. They finished with a winning record for the second season in a row (9-7), but failed to make the playoffs. Over comes Matt Patricia, who was with the New England Patriots from 2004 until this offseason – spending the last six as defensive coordinator.
