The Raiders, after a rocky week with the resignation of Jon Gruden following his old and disgusting emails, bounced back into the win column in convincing style.
The matchup featured a battle of the 2014 draft class’s premium quarterbacks in Carr and Bridgewater. A matchup that saw Carr, the only QB from that class still with the team that drafted him, coming out on top. Clearly, head and shoulders above Teddy.
Henry Ruggs continued to grow, catching the first touchdown of the game. Waller tied the great Tim Brown eleven straight games with at least four catches and forty yards in each game.
But the real game ball should go to Max Crosby for his three sacks (becoming the first Raider to do so since Mack left) and the ball hawking and beat up secondary that recorded three interceptions.
This had to be their finest performance of the season and a strong message that the Raiders will prevail over the current controversy.
Back to Carr, he passed the 300 passing yards again. Doing it against a very respected Denver defense.
The key now is to repeat this performance against the Eagles next week and every week after that. Go Raiders!
