Oakland vs. San Francisco: Raiders' Players To Watch Saturday Night

Last Week I gave you four players to watch on Thursday night versus the Cowboys. Those players were TE Brandon Meyers, WR Nick Miller, CB Stanford Routt, and RB Louis Rankin.
Meyers played well, getting his nose dirty with a lot of blocking, and catching two passes for 29 yards. His blocking played a key roll in the running game, and he helped the silver and black rush for a total of 176 yards on the ground.
Nick Miller made a fantastic catch that not only made ESPN's top ten plays, but was a "can't miss catch" on NFL.com as well. Miller is quickly becoming a fan favorite, as well as a favorite of the coaching staff. He will likely get a lot of playing time against the 49ers.
Stanford Routt had a bad game. He was continuously picked on, and beaten, during the Dallas touchdown drive, including the touchdown pass which he was covering Jason Witten. Routt needs to bounce back if he wants to make a squad with some depth at cornerback.
Louis Rankin played very well, and may have given himself a shot at being the fourth halfack kept this season on the 53 man roster. He showed that he has good play making capabilities on his way to six carries for 31 yards and a TD.
This week I bring you four more players on the cusp to watch for against the "forty-whiners."
