Reactions to PFF’s grades of the Oakland Raiders after their Week 3 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
With a lot to prove coming off a loss to the Atlanta Falcons in their home opener in Week 2, the Oakland Raiders (2-1) responded by uprooting the Tennessee Titans (1-2) in Nissan Stadium, 17-10.
Though the Raiders’ offense has done a majority of the heavy lifting through the first two weeks of the 2016 season, head coach Jack Del Rio praised his defense for their ability to pick up the slack for their relatively lifeless offense in the second half.
"“I saw glimpses of what it should look like,” Del Rio said of his defense, via Raiders.com. “I think we all did. We saw glimpses. Nowhere near what it needs to be yet but certainly reasons to be optimistic, which I am. I am very optimistic about the men we have and the work we are putting in.”"
Here is a recap of how ProFootballFocus.com graded the Raiders in Del Rio’s second consecutive win on the road in 2016, and because of the improvement on defense, optimism is warranted.
