On the Raiders podcast with Rich:

#1 Raiders head coach Jon Gruden rested starting quarterback Derek Carr and back up quarterback Marcus Mariota and third string quarterback Nathan Peterman quarterbacked the whole game. Before we get into Peterman Gruden using caution as most coaches will in not playing Carr and Mariota in the first pre season game.

#2 On Peterman he led the team for a win didn’t throw a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks and threw for one interception but got the Raiders in good field position for the backs to get into the end zone.

#3 Carr was rested by Gruden as he actually skipped playing the entire game as planned. Mariota had a leg injury and also rested. Although Gruden and the Raiders are curious to see what they can do they stayed on the side of caution and one of them might make an appearance this Saturday in Los Angeles against the Rams.

#4 Peterman’s completion total was impressive throwing 29-38 for 246 yards that also is a testament about how much protection he got from the offensive line and getting time to throw.

#5 The Raiders head to the Southland and face the Rams at SoFi Stadium this Saturday. The Rams dropped their last game to the LA Chargers 13-6 last Saturday. While pre season is an opportunity to look at the back ups and free agents it was a game that lacked offense for the Rams who used two quarterbacks Devlin Hodges and Bryce Perkins, Perkins was the only QB to throw a touchdown in the game for the Rams only score.
