Khalil Mack clearly excited for revenge game against Raiders
Khalil Mack faces the Oakland Raiders for the first time since they traded him in Week 5, and it’s fair to say that he’s looking forward to it.
Mack completely embraced the notion of “vindictiveness” when asked about it Tuesday, suggesting that he very much views this as a grudge match or revenge game.
Khalil Mack smiled really wide this morning when @MarkPotash asked him if he'll feel any vindictiveness toward the Raiders this week.
"Ooh. Vindictiveness. I like that word."

The Raiders traded Mack for a bountiful haul after the star pass rusher sat out the 2018 preseason in search of a new contract. Many felt that Jon Gruden was far too eager to get rid of him, though Gruden has defended his thought process. Mack went on to post 12.5 sacks for the Bears, and he’s clearly bitter about how things ended with Oakland. Derek Carr should probably keep his head on a swivel this week.
