The Raiders looked to build on the Week 1 win in Denver on Sunday afternoon, but the Buffalo Bills were ready to prove they are still the second-best team in the AFC and they did. The Raiders offense struggled against a far superior Bills defense and the Raiders defense looked out of place, getting consistently beat on nearly every play.

Josh Allen took care of business and proved he belongs as one of the best QB's in the league as he picked apart the Raiders defense. While the Raiders had some bright spots, the Bills were clear that they were the better team on the field in Week 2.

Josh Jacobs had one of his worst games as a Raider and one of the keys to the game was supposed to be getting the running game going. Jacobs ended up with -2 yards and Jimmy Garoppolo threw two interceptions.

The one bright spot was Davante Adams, who caught the lone passing touchdown and had 6 catches for over 80 yards. Tre Tucker led the Raiders in rushing with 34 yards on a lone carry and Zamir White had 4 carries for 22 yards.

Raiders defense struggled all game long

Josh Allen picked apart the atrocious defense, tossing three touchdowns and posting a completion percentage over 80 percent. Once again, the defensive line looked gassed from the beginning of the game and the Raiders have ignored their defense for far too long.

Buffalo had nearly twice the yardage as the Raiders and the Raiders gave up two sacks as well. Buffalo held the ball for nearly 40 minutes keeping the Raiders off the field for the majority of the time. The Raiders also turned the ball over three times leading to the massive difference in time of possession.

Overall, it was a bad outing from the Raiders.

The Raiders are taking on the Steelers at home on Sunday Night Football next week.
