Oakland Raiders: Week 2 Position-by-Position Breakdown

Carson Palmer said it best in his postgame comments after Monday night's loss to San Diego when he said that Week 2 couldn't come soon enough.

With the sour taste of a rivalry-game loss still fresh in their mouths, the Raiders made a quick turnaround for Week 2 with just five full days before facing the Dolphins. Oakland's game on Sunday kicks off at 10 a.m. pacific coast time.

To add to the bitterness that they're feeling, Oakland also found out that receiver Jacoby Ford needed surgery on his foot early this week. While the timetable for his return remains unclear, he isn't expected back for at least a couple of months.

One bright spot for Oakland is the return of Denarius Moore, arguably their most dynamic receiver and kick returner.

With all that said, lets take a look at a position-by-position breakdown, as the Raiders look to right the ship and earn their first win of the season.
