Third & Short is NFLFemaleâ€™s mini 10-15 minute podcast. A quick, easy listen. It features our host, Wanda Wiedman speaking with writers and reporters from around the league in one-on-one interviews sharing their teamâ€™s latest news.
Today on Third & Short,Â TeverlyÂ touches on the impact that wideout Amari Cooper has made for the team and the relationship with his quarterback, second year Derek Carr.
She also discusses the addtion of wide receiver Michael Crabtree from the San Francisco 49ers and the number two spot he holds. She shares the all around impact players are making,Â including the addition of the dynamic running back Latavius Murray.
There is hope that DE Khalil Mack will be healthy and ready to go after a hamstring injury and safety Charles Woodson with a combo shoulder/knee injury. She believes their absence will possibly change the game.
The Raiders have won the last two meetings against the Pittsburgh Steelers and look for another upset in week 9 to bring them to 5-3 in the AFC West, running behind the undefeated Denver Broncos.
