5 Adjustments Oakland Raiders Must Make in Week 2 Matchup with Baltimore Ravens

It’s time for the Oakland Raiders to go back into the lab and begin making adjustments for their Week 2 opponent, the Baltimore Ravens.

Based on a horrific Week 1 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and potential long-term injuries, the coaching staff needs to make sweeping changes. Improvement requires some personnel shifts on the defensive side of the ball and a change in philosophy on offense.

That’s not an overreaction.

Head coach Jack Del Rio called the Raiders performance "embarrassing."

It’s only one game, but the talent on the field in Week 1 showed a variety of deficiencies. In addition, key players could miss significant time going forward.

The Ravens travel to Oakland, hoping to avoid an 0-2 start as well. Expect a highly competitive game from both teams. However, it’s imperative for the Raiders to make early adjustments in order to compete with a well-coached Ravens team.
