What to watch for
The Colts, on a three-game losing streak, made some changes Monday, parting ways with Head Coach Frank Reich and hiring ESPN analyst and former Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday as their interim head coach. In an introductory press conference, Saturday noted that the team will be sticking with second-year QB Sam Ehlinger as the starter. Ehlinger has started Indianapolis' previous two games, going 17-of-23 for 201 passing yards against the Commanders and 15-of-29 for 103 passing yards and an interceptions against the Patriots last Sunday.
Even with the coaching change, the Raiders are readying to face the Colts just as they normally would through watching film and focusing on each player's role.
"I think you've got to look at what they've done so far this year and what they've been successful with," defensive coordinator Patrick Graham said Tuesday. "As we've talked about before, in this league, it's about the people. ... Schematically, you can't expect it to change totally over one week. So you've got to prepare for the people."
The Raiders lead the all-time regular season series against the Colts, 10-8, since their first matchup in 1971. Their last regular season matchup came on Jan. 2, 2022, where the Raiders took home a 23-20 victory over Indianapolis. The Silver and Black have won three of the last five games against the Colts.
Following Week 9, the Raiders offense ranks 16th in the league in total offense (338.4 yards per game), 13th in passing (228.1 ypg), 19th in rushing (110.3 ypg) and tied for 14th in points (22.9 ppg). Defensively, the Raiders rank 28th in total defense (371.3 ypg), 26th in passing (255.3 ypg), 14th in rushing (116.0 ypg) and 27th in points allowed (25.1 ppg).
