The Raiders looked like they were only playing with eight men on defense. The loss of Bill Romanowski can't mean this much to this team. They aren't strong up the middle at all. A combination of age and injuries are hurting this team defensively and offensively. Sadly, the window of opportunity to win a championship is closed for this team. Right now, the Raiders have to hope they can scrape together a few wins and compete for a playoff spot. Because if they don't, there may be a mass exodus of players.
Question on the Bears: What was the key to their success today?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Gannon was 16-of-34 for 183 yards. Rice caught three balls for 51 yards and was defended many times by rookie Charles Tillman, making his first start for the Bears. ... Chicago linebacker Warrick Holdman sprained his left ankle late in the first half and didn't return. Booker hurt his side late in the game.
