Red Raiders in the pros - week 1

Crabtree and the Raiders win in Tennessee

NFL: Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans The Tennessean-USA TODAY Sports

Danny Amendola - WR (New England Patriots)

Amendola led the Patriots in receiving during their opening night collapse to Mahomes’ Chiefs. Alex Smith may be wary of Pat’s preseason accolades and came out firing, assuring Chiefs fans and management that the starting job is his. Danny had 6 receptions on 7 targets for 100 yards, but no touchdowns.

Michael Crabtree - WR (Oakland Raiders)

Coming into the season, many have stated that Crabtree and Amari Cooper are the best receiving duo in the league. Others have said that Crabtree has the best hands in the league, and he showed why early on.

Crab finished with 6 catches on 7 targets for 83 yards. Playing with Crabtree on the Raiders is Deandre Washington. If this game was any indication, he might not have a very active year. He only had 3 rushes for 4 yards and 2 receptions for 18 yards as Marshawn Lynch was the featured back.

Davis Webb - QB (New York Giants)

Last week when we looked at where all the Red Raiders were, Davis Webb was left out. This was not intentional, but when a list of Red Raiders in the NFL is populated, Webb’s name does not come up. However, Davis will always be a Red Raider. He graduated from Tech and has always treated the Red Raiders and the transfer process with the utmost professionalism. During the preseason Webb impressed the Giants enough to almost beat out Geno Smith for the backup job and has been praised enough to be the first legitimate heir apparent to Eli Manning.
