The Raiders were up 31-24, and with the Lions scrambling a little bit to get to the line of scrimmage and get a play off, Raiders coach Jon Gruden wasn't a huge fan of stopping play at the time. "I have to give him a better chance and a better ball". That was followed by a nine-play 75-yard drive from Matthew Stafford, capped by a two-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay. It's also the first of four November games wiener the Raiders will face a string of average quarterbacks that includes an aging Philip Rivers, a rookie in Ryan Finley and second-year man Sam Darnold. He got just four carries in Sunday's loss to the Raiders but caught three of his four targets for 40 yards and a touchdown. Left tackle Kolton Miller is the only starter to remain available all season with Incognito missing two games for a suspension, Gabe Jackson missing five with a knee injury, Trent Brown missing one entire game with a calf injury and center Rodney Hudson leaving with a sprained ankle last week after 10 plays.
"It shows what our front office is really doing and what's really being built", fourth-year corner Daryl Worley said Sunday. We push them each and every week. "So our left-handers have to step up and they did".
Jacobs, the 24th overall pick, was expected to have an immediate impact as the Raiders' feature back. "I think they all responded pretty good when they had their numbers called yesterday", he said. But he makes a lot of hard yards - tough 3-, 4-yard gains. On top of that, the Lions have a clear advantage when they go to their passing game, as the Raiders are banged-up in their secondary and lack depth after trading Gareon Conley to the Texans two weeks ago.
But that still wasn't enough because the defense struggled to slow down Josh Jacobs and the Raiders running game and the offense had three drives get inside Oakland's 30 and end up without points. 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. On Sunday, Carr praised the rookies' grasp of Gruden's offensive system.

Man fatally stabbed at Popeyes cut line for chicken sandwich: cops
In September, Houston Police reported a man " pulled a gun on employees of restaurant after they ran out of chicken sandwich". Stawinski said there is no evidence that the suspect and victim knew each other.
Defensively, the Raiders have had only two rookies - Ferrell and Crosby - play more than half of their snaps. They have allowed only eight sacks all season, one off the franchise low through seven games, and have matched a team record by going three straight games without allowing a sack.
Said Carr: "Oh, it's going to be rowdy, I know that".
The toughest week for fantasy players this season awaits, as Week 10 features six National Football League teams who will be on a bye week: Jacksonville, Houston, Washington, Philadelphia, Denver, New England.
"We never have a doubt", Carr said this week. Last week, like any good reliever, I vowed to bounce back, and I did, for the most part. The Cardinals have given up the most fantasy points to tight ends of any team this season, so at least give Brate a look if you're in need of a tight end.
