04:03 PM ET 10.12 | Contrary to recent trends in the NFL, the Raiders want to run the ball more. Their offensive line struggles on obvious passing downs, and an obvious way to offset some of the pass rush is to make a commitment to running the ball. You can make that type of commitment when your best offensive player is your dynamic running back, and you have receivers who can burst down the field. Run effectively, play-action off the run, and chuck the ball deep on those passes, and you have a very good formula to win football games.
