RAIDERS OFFENSE VS. PATRIOTS DEFENSE

Raiders only ran 24 offensive plays in the first half

Guyton started at ILB, and Colvin at OLB in the Patriots base 3-4 – Seau played in the nickel package, Also got some snaps at ILB in the base 3-4

    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play?
