Raiders at Cowboys: Defensive Grades for 2021 Week 12
This group was led by Denzel Perryman, who despite being somewhat subpar in coverage this season, is leading the league in tackles. He was solid in this contest and the best among this group.
His linebacking partner, Cory Littleton, continued to disappoint in this one, as he was horrific in coverage and stopping the run, a trend that has become somewhat normal for his career as a Raider. KJ Wright only played 15 snaps in this contest but was somewhat decent in his cameo-like role.
This unit was below average in this contest as Prescott was able to throw at will on this defense, and this was with a few of his top targets missing this matchup. Going forward, the Raiders are going to need more than just Perryman racking up double-digit tackles, as they will be battling against some great offenses in their playoff push.
