Can Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders keep pace with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? CJ GUNTHER/EPA

We were so close to not having any games rescheduled in Week 7. That all changed when Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown tested positive for the coronavirus. On top of that, the entire offensive line has been placed on the reserve/COVID list. The game was originally slated for Sunday Night Football on NBC but has been moved to the afternoon slate of games. Jon Gruden and the Raiders will host Tom Brady and the Buccaneers for the first time in Las Vegas at 4:05 p.m. on FOX.

Every other game that has been rescheduled has been moved to another date. This is the fourth week in a row where there was a postponed or rescheduled game. It is not clear how moving the game up just a couple of hours in the day is going to help this situation.

These teams are surprising a lot of pundits so far this season. The Raiders beat the defending champs in their last game but got beat handedly by the Patriots who are still struggling with cohesion after Brady left for Tampa.

As for the Buccaneers, they lost to the overachieving Chicago Bears in the last minutes of the game when the greatest quarterback of all time inexplicably forgot it was fourth down to end their comeback attempt. Then they went into their game against the Green Bay Packers as considerable underdogs and they won the game by four touchdowns. Both teams possess Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde qualities. Which teams will we see on Sunday?

For the Raiders, it will be a huge concern how they will get their running game going with Josh Jacobs with the offensive line in question. Not to mention the questions about protecting Derek Carr. It's going to become a factor because of turnovers. Carr is doing well in the air only throwing one interception compared to 11 touchdowns but he has fumbled the ball five times already.

The only way the Raiders are staying in this one is if they protect the ball. Because the Buccaneers looked like the best defense in the NFC when they absolutely destroyed Aaron Rodgers and the previously undefeated Packers by holding them to just 10 points.

Their offense also put on a clinic as Rob Gronkowski led the team in receiving yards and had his best game as a Buccaneer. Ronald Jones II is regularly topping 100 yards. Mike Evans (ankle) and Chris Godwin (hamstring) have performed well but have been slowed by injuries to reach their full potential with Brady.

Guess that's why the team signed Antonio Brown after his year-long suspension from the NFL for sexual assault allegations expired this week. Originally coach Bruce Arians said they had no intention of signing Brown. This looks like a move heavily orchestrated move by Brady to reunite with one of his favorite targets. They only played once together September 19, 2019 when both were on the Patriots.

Brown had four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. These two have obvious chemistry on the field.  When he joins the team, starting in what is anticipated to be Week 9 against the Saints, this team will have an embarrassing spoil of riches and be favored to go very deep in the playoffs. The rich get richer.
