While we’re sure many are excited to see Bosa get his first NFL action, it couldn’t have come against a tougher offensive line than the Oakland Raiders. Led by former Pro Bowler Donald Penn and high profile free agent Kelechi Osemele, the Raiders have given up two sacks on the year while continuing to dominate in the run game.
It should be expected that Bosa will play on a “snap count” to limit his exposure and allow get him up to speed slowly without fear of re-injuring his hamstring.
Regardless, this is a matchup to watch in regards to the future of this Chargers defense.
