Oakland Raiders: How To Beat the St. Louis Rams

D.J. O'ConnorSenior Analyst IIISeptember 16, 2010

We all saw what happened to the Raiders in Week One, but it's time to move on.  And nothing will be better for the confidence of Raider Nation than to watch the Raiders do to the Rams what the Titans did to the Raiders. 

So how do the Raiders defeat the Rams and get their record to 1-1?  Let's take a look.

 

Welcome Sam Bradford to the NFL

Bradford threw 55 passes against the Cardinals in Week One, three o which were intercepted.  The Raiders need to get a few picks, as well as some sacks, to get Bradford to feel uncomfortable in The Black Hole. 

 

No Big Runs Allowed

The Raiders were in a competitive game with the Titans until a 76-yard TD run by Chris Johnson took the Titans to a large lead.  The Raiders must contain Steven Jackson, which would put additional pressure on Sam Bradford to move the ball.

 

Protect Jason Campbell

Some Raiders fans are already calling for Bruce Gradkowski.  I am calling for the offensive line to step up, metaphorically, so that Jason Campbell can step up, literally, in the pocket and throw down the field.
