July 26 Youth Joe Flacco Jersey
, Napa, CaliforniaLAST YEAR: Raiders plummeted from 12 wins in 2016 to six last year as QB Derek Carr and offense regressed, defense struggled, and coach Jack Del Rio was fired. Oakland's offensive output dropped by more than seven points per game, takeaways fell from 30 to 14, and Raiders got almost no production from past three draft classes in becoming one of league's biggest disappointments. That led to move to bring coach Jon Gruden back for second stint with Raiders after spending past nine seasons in broadcast booth.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: Gruden, WR Jordy Nelson http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-maxx-williams-jersey

, WR Ryan Switzer, OL Kolton Miller, DT Maurice Hurst, DE Arden Key.IMPORTANT LOSSES: Del Rio, WR Michael Crabtree, RT Marshall Newhouse, LB NaVorro Bowman Authentic Sam Koch Jersey
, CB TJ Carrie, CB Sean Smith, CB David Amerson, P Marquette King.CAMP NEEDS: Biggest priority is getting 2016 Defensive Player of Year Khalil Mack into camp after he held out entire offseason while seeking long-term contract. Mack is entering final year of rookie deal and Gruden and new DC Paul Guenther are eager to get most important defensive piece on practice field. Other main issues are learning Gruden's system and figuring out offensive tackle situation with LT Donald Penn coming back from foot injury and rookies Miller and Brandon Parker battling Breno Giacomini for time.EXPECTATIONS: Owner Mark Davis has wanted to bring back Gruden ever since taking over team seven years ago. He's hoping move pays off in team's final two seasons in Oakland before move to Las Vegas in 2020. Gruden is being counted on to bring out best from Carr, who went from MVP candidate in 2016 to mediocre last season as he dealt with injuries. His protection got worse and his receivers were inconsistent. Even if Gruden does manage to spark offense, defense will need to take big step forward for Raiders to get back into playoff contention. After a long week of speculation, the quarterback question in Baltimore receives its first big news. Ravens QB Joe Flacco is doubtful to play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.The Ravens have gone back and forth with all three quarterbacks as a possibility this week. Harbaugh stated early after the bye week that Joe didn’t need to practice to play. Then on Thursday Youth Nick Boyle Jersey
, Lamar Jackson did not practice as he came down with stomach pains, leaving Robert Griffin III as the only quarterback participant in practice. In the end, this leaves just a bit of wonder as to who’s starting on Sunday.It’s unfortunate to see James Hurst out for yet another game, but thankfully Orlando Brown Jr. has stepped up and produced solid results at right tackle in his absence. It’s also good to see Ronnie Stanley in the questionable column as opposed to out, hopefully keeping Jermaine Eluemunor from replacing him.Tavon Young will be a big factor here. The Ravens need a strong slot cornerback to defend against the passing attack of Andy Dalton and company. Young has played excellently this season and hopefully can continue it on Sunday.As for the Bengals, many of their pass-catchers are hurting right now, leaving many to wonder if they’ll be forced into a more one-dimensional game.The biggest name on their report James Hurst Jersey
, of course, is A.J. Green. He’s been a one-man scoring machine against Baltimore. In his career, A.J. has played 11 games against the Ravens and caught 53 passes for 886 yards and nine touchdowns. The absence of Green would be a huge break for the Ravens, including the hat-trick against the Ravens’ secondary in Week 2 of 2018 (PFR).This game may feature two of the most prominent names in the division absent from their respective squads. Then again, maybe both teams are bluffing.
