Three and Out is a weekly series that will examine three areas where the Oakland Raiders played well, and three areas where they didn’t.
After a 17-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans, the Oakland Raiders are 2-1 on the season. It wasn’t easy, and it certainly wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win.
It’s been an interesting start to the season, to say the least. Winning a shootout on the road, dropping the home opener, having a historically bad defense through two weeks, and then having the offense and defense switch roles in a second road victory.
It doesn’t have to make sense, and a lot of times with football it doesn’t make sense — it only has to work. That was the case in Week 3 — the Raiders simply just got it to work.
As always, there are areas where the team played well, and areas where they didn’t.
Let’s start with the positives. Here are three areas Raiders fans should feel good about following Week 3.
