Defensive end Jonathan Allen's statistics for the Washington Redskins on Sunday night weren't gaudy, but they were significant.
Early Pro Football Focus numbers, which often change in the day after a game, state the Raiders also created 15 other pressures on the day.
Through the first two weeks of the season, the Raiders looked like one of the best teams in the league. The running backs have to be efficient and consistent in gaining around four yards per carry.
FAST FACTS: Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch has 75 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2007, which marks the second-most touchdowns in the league during that time. He showed why on that play. Crabtree was injured against the Washington Redskins in Week 3 and had been listed as questionable on the Raiders' injury report, but his condition has since been downgraded by the team. The cornerbacks must stay disciplined and try to prevent giving them any big plays. But the Raiders wideout caught 12 passes on 13 targets in Week 1 and 2, and was totally taken out of the game by Norman in Week 3. I remember one time when I tried to tackle him (when he was with) the Seattle Seahawks and I had him behind the line.
Each presents a unique challenge for blockers, given Mack has routinely powered through double-teams and Miller consistently unwraps a variety of moves to find his way to opposing passers. Romo was tackled on a similar play past year, in which he was tackled and bent forward in the preseason and injured his back. They are third in yards per game, with C.J.
"They have a really good offensive line".
He leads the Raiders with a mere 139 yards and a touchdown on three dozen carries but brings more than just numbers to his hometown team, namely a tone-setting physicality and personality.
