Countdown to Paydirt: Sunday Night Football in Washington

The Oakland Raiders are 2-0 for the first time since 2002 and will now head across the country to take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football.

WATCH: Marshawn Lynch puts it down for The Town in Raiders win

Oakland native Marshawn Lynch took the field at the Coliseum on Sunday for the first time while donning his childhood home team Silver & Black jersey.

Countdown to Paydirt: Raiders ready to welcome the Jets

The Oakland Raiders started their 2017 campaign with a solid 26-16 road win over the Tennessee Titans and will now return to Oakland to defend their home field against the New York Jets. Jack Del Rio finds his team a two-touchdown favorite by Las Vegas standards, but the team needs to maintain a mentality that any team can win in the NFL. The Raiders defense played well last week, allowing just one touchdown and three field goals to Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans. The Raiders defense will be facing an easier task on paper this week in the...
