They finished 2-11-1. New Orleans will now have to turn to 2015 third-round pick P.J. Williams, who missed all of last season with an injury, and undrafted rookie free agents Ken Crawley and De'Vante Harris. The running attack of the Raiders also needs to play a factor into this game. Secondly, the run game has to get going right off the back. When McCants was injured in the second half, Donald Penn switched from left tackle to right tackle, Kelechi Osemele moved to left tackle from ... Read More
