Former Raiders Defensive Lineman Otis Sistrunk

Sunday night, the Oakland Raiders came away the victor in a heated battled against their division foe the Denver Broncos. The game resulted in a 30-20 Silver and Black win that showed the Raiders are hungry to show what they're capable of. Prior to kickoff former Raiders defensive lineman Otis Sistrunk was in attendance and was asked to light the memorial torch honoring Al Davis.

During his career with the Raiders, Sistrunk tallied three interceptions and recovered seven fumbles. His efforts on the field earned him a Pro Bowl berth during the 1974 season, his third season in the league, and served all seven of his years in the NFL in the Silver and Black. Sistrunk was also a member of the Raiders first Super Bowl victory back in 1976 when the team defeated the Minnesota Vikings 32-14.
