The Oakland Raiders fell to 4-9 on the season with a 37-27 loss on the road against the New York Jets today, thanks to the usual defensive lapses and one big special-teams breakdown.
Giving up a touchdown with just ten seconds left in a four-point loss at home hurt the defensive marks, but the Raiders have to be able to score more as well on offense if they want to win consistently in the modern NFL.
Terrelle Pryor’s performance was outstanding, leading a comeback that barely fell short as mistakes overtook the Raiders, and they fell to the Colts. See how the other Raiders units stacked up on Sunday.
With three games left, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie are deciding which players are deserving of playing time, most notably rookie wide receiver Rod Streater and cornerback Phillip Adams. Allen also says that it will continue to be an ongoing process to improve the team.
