The guys are back with an in-depth discussion of the Oakland Raiders offense, the games against Buffalo this week, and more on the Las Vegas Raiders Report Podcast.

The Las Vegas Raiders Report podcast is back and this time “The Scotts”Scott Gulbransen & Scott Winter – as we talk the Oakland offense and their progression since the disaster in DC.

This week’s Las Vegas Raiders Report Podcast kicks off with an in-depth discussion about the state of the Oakland Raiders offense. From the meltdown that was the Redskins loss to the triumphant return of Amari Cooper against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The guys discuss how talent or scheme alone doesn’t ruin or make and offense – it’s both, working together, that wins football games for Oakland.

They also break down the Buffalo Bills and why their defense offers both great opportunity and some concern against the Raiders running game without power back Marshawn Lynch. As Winter says, the Bills have a good “bend but don’t break” defense that should offer Derek Carr and the Raiders receiving corps plenty of opportunities to go down field.

We also update Raider Nation on the new stadium in Las Vegas and the slew of developments this week with the official groundbreaking set for November 13th. The guys also get a chuckle out of the bitter and wacky Oakland folks who continue to spread false rumors and information about the relocation.

The show closes out with a discussion about the drop in NFL ratings and if the season protests by players is to blame. Also: is the officiating in the NFL really that bad? The Scotts tell you what they think.
