There has been many bad losses for the Raiders in the past decade http://www.raiderscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marcus-gilchrist-jersey , today’s 27-3 loss to the Seahawks definitely is challenging for one of the worst.There’s really no way to sugar coat it, the Raiders were a complete and utter disaster.The defense was bad, the offense was worse, and the special teams stunk.With a 1-5 record, The Raiders will be on the much needed bye week, in week seven.Let’s take a look at the Raiders week six report card.Aerial Attack: FDerek Carr finished the game 23-31 with 142 yards passing and zero touchdowns.In Carr’s defense he didn’t get much help from his supporting cast, especially his offensive line.Carr was under pressure virtually every play that took longer than a couple seconds to develop.Amari Cooper and Seth Roberts both suffered concussions.Cooper took a helmet to helmet hit from Seahawks safety, Bradley McDougald.Surprisingly, the hit did not draw a flag.Playing from behind the entire game, Jalen Richard was heavily involved in the offense as the best option in the passing game.Richard led the team in catches and yards with seven grabs for 48 yards.It is worth noting that Derek Carr suffered what appeared to be a left shoulder or arm injury late in the game.That will be something to monitor throughout the bye week.Ground Game: DAfter a great start to the season Marshawn Lynch had his second mediocre game in a row (45 yards-13 attempts).With the offensive line losing bodies left and right the run game will continue to struggle until they are healthy.Again, game flow forced Jon Gruden to abandon the run game and relay more on a pass happy offense.One bright spot in the running game actually came from Derek Carr.Throughout his career, Carr has been reluctant to leave the pocket to pick up yards with his feet.Today Carr picked up several first downs when forced to scramble.He gained 31 yards on four attempts. Offensive Line: FThe performance by the offensive line was absolutely atrocious.Jon Feliciano, who is replacing Kelechi Osemele at guard Donald Penn Jersey , suffered a rib injury and did not finish the game.Feliciano was replaced by Justin Murray.Clearly, Kolton Miller is playing when he shouldn’t be.It was reported last week that Miller is playing through a grade two MCL sprain.Right tackle, Brandon Parker looked completely overmatched in his second career start.On the day Carr was sacked six times and hit 10 times. Two of the sacks resulted in fumbles.Defensive Line: FSame story, different week.Outside of one Arden Key sack the defensive line continues to be one of the worst in the league at generating a pass rush.It was nice to see Key finally get his first career sack as he has seemingly been getting closer and closer each week.The defensive line was pushed around by a more physical Seahawks offensive line.It was evident from the start that the Seahawks game plan was pound the ball with the likes of Chris Carson (14-59), Rashaad Penny (9-43), and Mike Davis (6-21).Linebackers: DMissed tackles, lack of athleticism in coverage, and a lack of talent in general is the issue for the Raiders at linebacker.Tahir Whitehead and Marquel Lee are not the answers at linebacker for the Raiders.Lee has shown signs of improvement but due to lack of depth and talent at the position is being asked to due far to much.On the Seahawks fist scoring drive, while in red-zone, Whitehead was called for a holding penalty that gave the Seahawks a fresh set of downs.Then, while in zone coverage, allowed Jaron Brown to find space for a touchdown. Secondary: CThe secondary wasn’t very good either but they did manage to receive the teams highest grade.Gareon Conley is Jon Gruden’s dog house, he did not see anytime at cornerback.Apparently Kelechi Osemele Jersey , Gruden thinks coaches need to get a look at Leon Hall and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.Daryl Worley intercepted a Russell Wilson pass in the red zone, but doesn’t make up for the multiple times he was beat for big gains. Gruden said after the game that you can expect to see Nick Nelson at cornerback after the bye week.Special Teams: FJohnny Townsend’s struggles continued today as he averaged only 30 yards a punt.In comparison Seahawks rookie punter Michael Dickson averaged 43 yards a punt and pinned two kicks inside the 20.Matt McCrane was one of two on field goal attempts.His miss came from 48 yards.McCrane has now missed four field goals in three games.Overall Grade: F Aaron Rodgers heard the applause after walking out of the stadium tunnel and back on to the field.The team doctor had checked out his left knee after the Green Bay Packers quarterback was carted off the field in the second quarter. Rodgers, it seemed, had avoided a major injury.He was good to go. The adrenaline kicked in."When I got the ovation, at that point, I said, 'We might as well win this thing,'" Rodgers recounted.The hobbling two-time NFL MVP threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.Rodgers connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game."Aaron Rodgers was remarkable. I just can't tell you how proud I am with him," coach Mike McCarthy said.Nick Perry sacked the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky on fourth-and-10 with 58 seconds to complete the comeback.Against the archrival Bears. To start the Packers' 100th season.Sunday marked the first time in franchise history that the Packers won after trailing by 17-plus points entering the fourth quarter, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on Sept. 17, 1989.For Rodgers Cheap Reggie Nelson Jersey , this was special."This will definitely go down as one my favorite memories, especially in this rivalry," Rodgers said.And especially because how awful the Packers played in the first half.A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter.A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half."Obviously, that's a tough one for us. It stings," coach Matt Nagy said after his Bears debut.It was Rodgers' first regular-season home game since Sept. 28 against the Bears. He was limited to seven games in 2017 because of a collarbone injury.Mack nearly stole the show. He also stripped the ball for a turnover in the red zone off Kizer in the second quarter. Mack made an immediate impact in his first game since the Bears acquired the premier pass rusher in a blockbuster deal with the Oakland Raiders.The Bears led 20-0 at one point and their defense dominated until the second half.Then Rodgers returned, and the Packers' defense held the Bears in check."I prepared all offseason for the first game of the season and I wanted to ... make an impact," Mack said. "But you want to win these games. That's the only thing on my mind. I hate losing."RODGERS INJURYRodgers was hurt in the second quarter after slipping to the turf while under pressure from linebacker Khalil Mack and defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris. The lineman landed on Rodgers.The quarterback initially tried to get up, then went back down, and was attended to by trainers. He appeared to reach down for the back of his left leg. Rodgers then walked to the cart that took him up the Lambeau Field tunnel.Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college.McCarthy said he was prepared to go with Kizer to start the second half until getting the word from the team doctor in the tunnel."His performance speaks for itself," McCarthy said.With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offense in the second half that kept him in the pocket.His right arm was just fine."It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half," Rodgers said.The Packers plan to run more tests on their QB on Monday http://www.raiderscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-marshawn-lynch-jersey , though Rodgers seems to think his availability for next week's game against Minnesota is a foregone conclusion."No, I'm planning on playing," Rodgers said.FAST STARTAn offensive-minded coach, Nagy had the aggressive Bears' offense pushing the Packers around the field in the first half.Mitchell Trubisky was 23 of 35 for 171 yards. He also ran for 32 yards on seven carries, including a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.It turned out to be the only offensive touchdown the Bears would score all night.The Packers' defense, in new coordinator Mike Pettine's first game, held the Bears to two field goals in the second half."You know we talked about finishing and we didn't do that," Nagy said.ANTHEMThere were no apparent signs of protest during the national anthem, when Bears players and coaches locked arms on the sideline.UP NEXTBears: Host the Seattle Seahawks next Monday.Packers: Host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
