Oakland Raiders

The Raiders don’t exactly have the league’s best situation under center when Derek Carr is healthy, and things are beginning to look especially problematic at backup quarterback.

Connor Cook has completed just 50% of his passes through three weeks while averaging a putrid 5.7 yards per attempt, while EJ Manuel has found the end zone only once despite better efficiency metrics.

Rashaad Penny’s (finger) Week 1 availability remains unclear, but Chris Carson figures to start regardless of the rookie’s status. Add in a suddenly-healthy C.J. Prosise, and a committee seems imminent.

It’s tough to get excited about anyone involved in a rushing “attack” behind the 31st-ranked offensive line in Football Outsiders’ adjusted line yards per rush.

The public is expecting Pete Carroll to find a way on Thursday night, as 71% of tickets and 66% of the money has come in on the Seahawks.
