The Las Vegas Raiders will have a tough job to overcome Monday night as they face an outstanding defense from the Baltimore Ravens.
One of the Raiders’ challenges is defending the Ravens, which ranks among the best running defenses in the NFL.
Raiders start to run back Josh Jacobs is ready to see how they stack up against the Raiders’ physical style of racing.
“Honestly, for me, I love every game, just personally because it’s my mentality. I mean, but it’s really a challenge to see how I stack up against them and how we rank against them. it’s going to be a fun game and I’m interested to see how they come out early and we’re just trying to maintain and finish, ”Jacobs said.
In 2020, the Ravens’ defense ranked eighth in rushing yards per game, allowing an average of 108 yards per game.
Jacobs, who receives the most hits on the team, took breaks during practice. At this point in his career, preventing injuries and unnecessary collisions is the smartest thing to do as he prepares for the physical defense of the Ravens.
Things will be different for silver and black; Fans will finally be welcomed to Allegiant Stadium for the regular season, something the Raiders did not have last year in their freshman year in Las Vegas.
The preseason may have been a smooth opening for Sin City fans, but comes Monday night; Raider Nation will have the opportunity to help the home team disrupt the Ravens’ call signal and showcase what the Death Star has to offer.
Last season, players had to depend on themselves and their teammates to get excited.
The atmosphere at Allegiant Stadium will help excite the Raiders and push them to beat the Ravens defense.
