The Oakland Raiders are rolling. Now they will try to improve to 3-0 in front of a national television audience. After scoring a league-high 71 points in wins over the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets, Oakland travels to face the Washington Redskins in the Week 3 Sunday night game.
Brandon Shell remembers all the lonely days as a youngster when he was afraid to talk to anyone. The New York Jets right tackle was uncertain which words would make it past his lips - or how they'd sound. Shell knew exactly what to expect, however, the moment his stutter would tangle his tongue and leave him struggling to form the most basic of sentences.
After a Week 2 stumble, the Buffalo Bills are looking to get their running game going again Sunday in Orchard Park, N.Y. Standing in their way will be the Denver Broncos. Buffalo (1-1) was held without a touchdown last week in a 9-3 loss to Carolina, and the Bills' running game went nowhere. LeSean McCoy went from 110 yards rushing in a season-opening win over the New York Jets to 9 yards on a dozen carries against the Panthers.
