The Atlanta Falcons are set to face off against the up-and-coming Oakland Raiders. Check out what the Falcons must do to get a win.
A tough Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left a sour taste in the mouth of the players, coaches, as well as the fans. Granted, the Bucs deserve a tip of the cap. They have talent, especially on the offense with the trio of quarterback Jameis Winston, running back Doug Martin, and wide receiver Mike Evans.
As we turn the pages to Week 2, the Falcons encounter another young team that has a decent share of young, up-and-coming talent. With a gunslinger in Derek Carr, a receiver duo in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, plus a pass rushing terror in Khalil Mack (who the Falcons coveted highly during the 2014 draft) the Raiders are no longer a doormat team. Besides, the Falcons enter Week 2 of the season in “must-win” territory. Before the Falcons and the Raiders tussle on Sunday, here are a few items that the Falcons must address to walk out of Oakland with a victory.
