Carved-up Oakland Raiders defense makes play when it matters

Raiders announce final injury report of Week 9

Giving up the go-ahead touchdown on the Raiders' last possession is a problem that has dogged the Lions since the opening game. He was the best player on the field for either team, yet was still in a funk, perhaps coming to terms with the reality that he can play like one of the best quarterbacks in the game - that he can play better than he ever has before - and Detroit still can lose four out of five.

Stafford threw for 406 yards against Oakland, more than any other quarterback in the league on Sunday.

The road trip certainly helped build team chemistry as when I sit, ok, pace, and watch each game you see a group of men who are truly enjoying what they do and are continuing to grow together as a team.

"There's an old saying about, 'We're going to try to make you play left-handed, '" Raiders coach Jon Gruden said on Monday at the team facility. He's now climbed all the way to the top of the passing charts, averaging a league-best 312.4 yards per game, and also ranks among the top five in touchdowns (second), yards per attempt (fourth) and QB rating (fifth). As the Raiders embark into the second half of the season they must now look forward to continued growth, minimizing mistakes, capitalizing on opportunities and being more aggressive on defense. He was also a part of a dominant Denver defense that won the Super Bowl during the 2015-16 campaign, posting 101 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a pick and two forced fumbles that year.

The Lions will most likely continue to run their offense through Stafford as their rushing attack has been abysmal all year. The defense allowed the Raiders to score both of their fourth-quarter touchdowns on third-and-goal and then Stafford couldn't tie the game on fourth-and-goal, even after being gifted a timeout that allowed the offense an extra minute to reassess the situation.

With Kerryon Johnson on injured reserve, the Lions' running game isn't much of a threat.

Follow the Heavy Oakland Raiders page for the latest breaking news, rumors and content! They are flat out bad against the pass ranking 30th in the National Football League in passing yards allowed. Jones finished with eight receptions for 126 yards receiving and a score. He returned last week after missing the previous two games due to injury.

Having survived the almost seven-week odyssey by winning two of five games to remain in the thick of the AFC playoff race, the Raiders (3-4) are excited to return for a three-game homestand that will determine how long they will stay in contention.

The Detroit Lions can't stop the run.

Injuries could be a big factor in this contest.

Running back Tra Carson (hamstring), offensive lineman Graham Glasgow (back), defensive tackle Damon Harrison (groin), cornerback Amani Oruwariye (knee) and defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are questionable.

But now time for the prediction. It should be a close game throughout and may come down to the last drive of the game. "I think Jalen did a great job of making some of those plays for us". Detroit climbs above.500 while Oakland falls to 3-5 and severely hurts their playoff chances.
