After a bye week, Raiders RB Darren McFadden is "feeling as good as you can this time of year," McFadden said, and he is ready for Pittsburgh.
He had 113 yards in a home win over the Steelers last season and seeks more of the same.
"They'll play physical, but a physical game fits my style," McFadden said. "It's always good. I love running against a physical team. ...
"I am a straight ahead guy. I am not a shaker or anything like that. I'll put a move on here and there, but for the most part I am straight ahead."
The story points out that the Raiders did a lot of self-scouting and they think they can start getting McFadden and the run game to produce this week and in the future. McFadden ranks 14th this week, a real solid RB2 start against the Steelers in what's considered a good matchup.
