In the beginning, the Raiders couldn't get any push off the line of scrimmage to run the ball up the middle. The running game lived on big plays by Darren McFadden on a draw and plays run to the outside.
Cooper Carlisle was pancaked on a play going into his gap and it was not successful. The Raiders did start to run the ball with ease in the second half, and credit has to be given to head coach Hue Jackson for adapting.
He saw that with the exception of a couple big plays, the offensive line couldn't "bully" anyone enough to the running game going. Jackson then went to zone blocking in the second half and the results were the Raiders icing the game with it.
Either Carlisle needs to be replaced by a bigger power blocker or the Raiders should zone block.
Otherwise, the Raiders won't be able to run the ball inside.
That's not a "bully."
