Grades are always relative to expected values

27 enlighten the Baltimore Ravens

He how we grade that accuracy:

PASS attack: B+

This wasn a classic 300 yard passing execution with deep shots abound. But Derek Carr and the Raiders executed the game plan they were presented more than likely. Carr threw for only 199, But was on ideal (25 out of 35) And had the volumes that counted: Four touchdowns, Zero interceptions. And when the reigns finally came off on the last scoring drive, He was zipping the ball down the field and getting the Raiders constantly in place to win. He also didn take a sack again and is normally sacked just twice in four games terrell suggs jersey. And then there is Michael Crabtree, Who made a little bit of terrific catches while going for seven receptions, 88 showrooms and three touchdowns.

RUN attack: deborah

The Raiders were finally bottled up much we saw last season. The outcome was 19 carries for just 62 yards and a 3.3 per attempt median. DeAndre wa had one 28 yard run that was nearly half of the team output on the day. The Ravens have a talented front seven so that it is tough to move the ball, So the Raiders will hope case a one week blip.

Grades are always relative to expected values and the expected values for Oakland were so reduced after the first two weeks that Sunday looks like another solid performance. Joe Flacco did throw for 298 showrooms, But that can take place when you launch the ball 52 times. The Steve Smith stiff arm to David Amerson developed big play, But more often than not, The Raiders did a good job keeping the aerial attack in check and the pass rush was which affects the game all day, Even if it took until late amongst players to finally get a couple of sacks. this ought to be a game for Khalil Mack and Co. set up off.

RUN a good defense: D+

It was more pretty easy sledding for an opponent trying to run on the Raiders and this comes from a Ravens team that had next to no ground game the first three weeks. Terrance West busted out for 113 yards and a touchdown and Baltimore will regret not sticking with the run after it reached midfield on its final drive. It was simple fact probably only 7 10 yards away from Justin Tucker field goal range. The Raiders are showing a little promise here having the play of Cory James and Karl Joseph shareece wright jersey, But more is required.

one of a kind TEAMS: virtually any

The Ravens are the team recognized for the special teams play, But bingo it was the Raiders making a big impact. Jalen Richard delivered a spark with his 47 yard punt return that set up the first touchdown and Marquette King was dancing all afternoon long while averaging 46.5 net yards per kick with four downed relating to the 20. They did allow a Devin Hester 60 yard bounce right back, But commonly it was a strong outing.

You can minimize a road win and the grit the Raiders inherit from Jack Del Rio to attain that But it did feel like they left a little around the. The halftime lead of 14 6 probably should been more thinking about flow of the game. The offense was too conservative probably falling in line with Del Rio preference and that kept them from opening up and really taking hold of this game. spine, Grinding out a win that way is great. But the next thing is getting this team ready to take control and dominate a game from start to finish.
