With Los Angeles' league-leading offense rolling into the East Bay, Oakland can't afford to waste drives and scoring opportunities against what looks to be the NFL's most explosive attack yet again.
It doesn't help that Khalil Mack is no longer in the building. Now in Chicago, Mack wasn't just Oakland's leading sack artist over the last three seasons. The defensive end was a total disruptor, leading the team in QB hits (22), hurries (40) and tackles for loss (15) in 2017. Mack's likely replacement along Oakland's defensive line, Tank Carradine, has 13 QB hits and nine total tackles for loss in his career.
For Cooper and the Raiders offense to score every drive, they'll need to improve significantly on last year's 24th-ranked scoring percentage (29.2). At least for one game.
