The Las Vegas Raiders went on the road and beat the Cleveland Browns in Week 8, and here are three things we learned as the team moved to 4-3.
The Las Vegas Raiders got a win in Cleveland, as they battled windy and rainy conditions against the Cleveland Browns on the road to improve to 4-3 on the season heading into division play.
Las Vegas was led by the running game and the defense instead of Derek Carr. Going against a good run defense, an elite pass rusher, and very windy conditions, the Raiders leaned on Josh Jacobs, as he finished with 128 yards on 31 carries, while Devontae Booker continued to impress as a back up with his hard earned runs.
Carr even contributed with 41 yards of his own, and for the first time this season, the defense didn’t allow a touchdown, as the Raiders won by double digit points. It wasn’t pretty, but it was a big time win coming against a team with a winning record, and a crucial AFC victory.
The defense still needs improvement, as a lot of their success today came from drops and misfirings from Baker Mayfield, but anytime you hold a opponent out of the end zone you did something right so hat’s off to the defense.
Here are three things we’ve learned from Sunday’s win in Cleveland.
