In Week Six, the Oakland Raiders’ offense set season-high marks in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. If this is Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano’s plan for staying competitive with a bad defense, it’s not necessarily a bad plan. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr had his best game of the year against San Diego, and the sky is the limit for the youngster going forward this 2014 season.
It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
The Oakland Raiders defense bent a lot on Sunday in New York, but it didn’t break much. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for rookie QB Derek Carr to get a win in his first NFL start as the Jets won the game, 19-14.
The Oakland Raiders fell to 4-9 on the season with a 37-27 loss on the road against the New York Jets today, thanks to the usual defensive lapses and one big special-teams breakdown.
