A week after a 45 point explosion and first win of the season Womens Kelechi Osemele Jersey , the Raiders had their worst performance of the year in a 26-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.The Raiders didn’t need to worry about blowing a lead in this one because at no point did they have the lead. The offensive line, in particular struggled badly.Without Donald Penn and Kelechi Osemele active for the game, Jon Feliciano and rookie third round pick Brandon Parker got the start.With the loss the Raiders fall to 1-4.Let’s take a look at the Raider week five report card.Aerial Attack: CAll things considered, two rookie tackles and a back up guard starting on the offensive line, on paper the numbers look ok.Carr finished the day 24-33, with 268 yards and one touchdown.Major points were taken off for a back breaking interception late in the third quarter.On the Chargers one yard line, Jon Gruden called a play action fake to Marshawn Lynch.Carr’s primary option was not open, Carr trying to make something out of nothing tried to make a play and the ball ended up in the hands of Melvin Ingram.After the game Jon Gruden defended his play call. “We haven’t thrown the ball in a goal to go situation all year.It’s first and goal, the decision there is to throw it and if it’s not open you throw it away.”Derek Carr has a history of at times trying to do too much, this season has been no different.“I think he just presses in some moments, he knows we have to do a lot with the ball when we have it and I think that’s what happened today,” said Gruden.Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson combined for five catches for 53 yards. Ground Game: FThe running game was a non factor today.The blame can be shared between the offensive line being ineffective and game flow.Marshawn Lynch was only given nine opportunities to carry the ball.As a team the Raiders carried the ball 13 times for 44 yards.Offensive Line: DStarting two rookies at tackle and a back up at guard were taking into consideration when evaluating their performance.Even with the inexperience along the line today the performance was not good.Carr was sacked three times, all three were given up by Kolton Miller.Also keep in mind Womens Justin Ellis Jersey , Joey Bosa did not play.In addition to poor run blocking, allowing pressures, the offensive line also committed several pre snap penalties which turned manageable third down situations into third and longs. Defensive Line: B+The boxscore numbers might not be indicative of the defensive lines production but this was one of their better performances overall.Bruce Irvin picked up his third sack of the season.Rookies Maurice Hurst, PJ Hall, and Arden Key all had an impact on the game.PJ Hall had a tackle for loss as well as a deflected pass and Hurst had another pass deflected.Arden Key is continuing to improve as a pass rusher, it’s only a matter of time before he begins to rack up some sacks.The Raiders defense held the Chargers to 79 yards rushing on 31 carries for a 2.5 yards per carry.Linebackers: CTahir Whitehead led the defense in tackles with nine but it was the tackle he did not make that had the biggest impact on the game.Austin Ekeler took a screen pass 40 yards for a touchdown, Whitehead whiffed badly on the play which allowed Ekeler to take it to the house.Big plays have plagued the Raiders all year long.Secondary: D-Phillip Rivers had his way with the Raiders secondary, completing 81 percent (22 of 27) of his passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns.Going into the game the Raiders defense ranked seventh in explosive pass plays allowed.An explosive play is defined as any pass play that is completed for 20 yards or more.Today the Chargers completed passes of 26, 34, 44, and 48.Early in the game the secondary made some plays to get off the field on third down but in the second half that was not the case.Special Teams: BUnlike last week the special teams were a non factor in the game.Dwayne Harris returned two kickoffs for 44 yards.Matt McCrane was made one of two field goal attempts.His miss was a long 57 yard attempt 11 seconds before the half.Overall Grade: DThis stat perfectly sums up Raiders bipolar first half vs second half in their first two games You know those memes where you take those Rob Lowe commercials and say “Hi, I’m Rob Lowe with DirecTV... and I’m Rob Lowe with cable”? You could do that with the Raiders in the first half vs the Raiders in the second half.This stat from resident Raiders stat man Josh Dubow of the Associate Press sums it up pretty nicely:Top ten in scoring differential in the first half and dead last in the second. That’s a good way to go 0-2. Here’s a breakdown of that:Hi, I’m Raiders in the first half... and I’m Raiders in the second halfTurnover ratio: +1 (2/1)Turnover ratio: -2 (0-2)Points for: 25Points for: 7Yards of offense: 463Yards of offense: 315Passing offense: 38 of 43 (88%) for 357 yards , 1 INTPassing offense: 20 of 29 (68%) for 234 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTRushing offense: 30 for 106 (3.5 ypc), 2 TD Rushing offense: 20 for 81 yards (4.1 ypc), 0 TDPoints against: 10Points against: 43Yards allowed: 317Yards allowed: 540Passing defense: 9 of 21 (48%) for 98 yards, 0 TD’s, 1 INTPassing defense: 28 of 47 (59%) for 357 yards, 2 TD’s, 0 INTRushing defense: 35 for 219 yards (6.2 ypc), 0 TDRushing defense: 36 for 183 yards (5.1 ypc), 2 TD’sFollow @LeviDamien
