The Oakland Raiders just finished dealing a loss against the Indianapolis Colts with a 31-24 contest. QB Derek Carr was the hero of the game, going 21/31 at 189 air-yards and tossing two picture-perfect touchdowns. Josh Jacobs led the rush attack with 21 carries, covering 53 yards and an average of 2.5 yards for each carry- unfortunately, he wasn’t able to connect any rushing touchdowns. Darren Waller meanwhile, focused on receiving yardage with 7 receptions pegged at 53 yards, averaging 7.6 yards for each. The Raiders resorted to rushing tactics for a staggering 32 times, gaining 188 yards in the process with an average of 5.9 yards per attempt. They finished with 64 plays that gained them a total of 377 yards. The Oakland defense was very tight, limiting the opponent to only 52% completion on a 24 out of 46 attempt lockdown at 265 yards.
The Raiders allowed 23 runs with 81 yards. For the whole game, they conceded 346 yards and 2 forced turnovers. They have the same problem as the Bears- they lacked offensive initiative. Their scoring is still decent though, going at 19.8 points per game. They’re making up for it by focusing on a ground game with an average of 126 ground yards per matchup- but this is not on an exemplary level as compared to the top-tier teams in the league right now. They need to improve their stats with a big sweep and more victories.
