Jon Gruden Is Getting Crushed For What He Said After The Loss

Jon Gruden Is Getting Crushed For What He Said After The Loss

There is a hole in the Raiders scheme and there isn't one man on the roster that can fill the tremendous hole left by All-Pro, but somehow, Jon Gruden still can't understand why the Raiders couldn't pressure the Rams enough.

If anything was apparent Monday in the Rams' 33-13 victory over the Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, it was that the made-over defense needed at least a half to come together and knock off any rust. "You know how things go".

"I think that tempo kind of caught us off guard", Peters said.

Next up for the Silver and Black is a divisional matchup on the road against the Denver Broncos, but before we shift our attention to that, let's take a look back at the playtime percentages from the clash with the Rams, and see what the numbers tell us. The first number is the total number of snaps played followed by the percentage of snaps played.

Then with less than two minutes to play, Peters, acquired in an offseason trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, intercepted a pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to put the game out of reach.

"He was under contract", Gruden said of Mack.

Contract holdouts are fairly typical for star National Football League players.

Those 180 yards are a personal best for Cook, and also set a new franchise record for most receiving yards by a tight end - just five players in Raiders' history have had more, and they were all wide receivers.
