The Oakland Raiders missed a chance to win consecutive games for the first time this season. Dennis Allen’s team also squandered an opportunity to move into the lead for the second wild-card spot in the AFC.
It was a game of missed opportunities all the way around.
Oakland’s defense couldn’t get off the field on third downs, and the offense couldn’t stay on it. Two missed field goals from kicker Sebastian Janikowski and an interception by rookie quarterback Matt McGloin didn’t help.
On the other hand, Rashad Jennings continues to be the workhorse in Oakland’s backfield and has the running game moving along at a fairly nice clip.
Here are the full roster report card grades for the Raiders.
