ATLANTA, Georgia (Bleacher Report) — The Oakland Raiders have one of the worst pass defenses in the entire NFL. It could be the worst, considering safety Michael Huff and veteran special-teamer Pat Lee are starting at cornerback and Matt Giordano at free safety.
It’s hard to see things going well for the Raiders in Atlanta against Matt Ryan, who has thrown 13 touchdowns passes to just three interceptions and completed 68.3 percent of his passes.
The Denver Broncos provided a blueprint in coverage and couldn’t execute. The Carolina Panthers provided a blueprint for getting pressure on Ryan but still couldn’t cover. The Raiders need do both, with inferior talent across the board.
