Derek Carr the "Gunslinger" and Crabtree Dominate!

If a team can over-come a late game fumble. If a team can take the ball and drive for the game-winning score in the final 3 minutes. If a team's defense can hold a good team out of the end zone, out of field-goal range, on the road, you have a winner.

For the first time since 2001, the year the Raiders went to the Super Bowl, the Silver and Black have won 3 road games; and that's 3 out of 3 road games! As a lifelong Raiders fan, I'm almost scared to say this but I will... We have a good team!

Our offense can score on anyone and our defense is improving. After the Falcons game and a Raider's lost, I was questioning whether or not Ken Norton was the man for the job of defensive coordinator. That's before I knew that the Falcons were much better than they were last season.

Considering what Julio Jones and Matt Ryan did to the defending NFC Champion Panthers today (10/02/16), Julio with over 300 receiving yards, and what they did to the Saints last week, the Raiders defense doesn't look so bad... and today, they showed up, kept the heat on Joe Flaco, and made a defensive stand when it was needed the most.
