Panthers @ Raiders 1:05PM PST TV: Blackout
Tomorrow afternoon’s Raider game is the first blackout of the season. Fox has already announced that there will be no afternoon game. For those planning to watch the game, bring a jacket, forecasts warn of showers throughout the day tomorrow.
But anyway, as far as the game goes, the revitalized Panthers are coming to Oakland fresh of a bye week tomorrow. Carolina comes to Oakland with a solid passing game behind Jake Delhomme, Steve Smith, and Muhsin Muhammad. The Carolina running game may miss Jonathon Stewart (listed as questionable) due to a heel injury.
For the Raiders Darren McFadden remains questionable with turf toe and is reportedly a game-time decision. But with only 2 wins, the Raiders will likely sit McFadden to prevent any further damage — turf toe is just one of those football injuries that lasts a while.
