Snap Counts: Preseason Week 3 vs. Packers

Three down, one to go.

While it may not have been the prettiest NFL game we've ever seen, the Oakland Raiders took care of business Friday night, felling the Green Bay Packers 13-6 at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

With the win – the Raiders second of the preseason – the Silver and Black have just one more game on the docket before they kick off for real, September 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Now, as is the case with nearly every preseason game, there was some good, and there was some not so good on display Friday night, but Head Coach Jon Gruden's squad escaped healthy which at this juncture is almost more important than anything else.

Nearly every healthy Raider  played at least a little bit, so let's look back at the playtime percentages from Friday night's win and see what the numbers tell us.

Offense

Derek Carr gets in and out – One series. That's all Coach Gruden needed to see from his starting quarterback, before he pulled him from Friday night's game, and more than likely ended his preseason too. In total, No. 4 played just seven offensive snaps (10%), but in Coach Gruden's defense, Carr really did show everything you wanted to see at this juncture, including a gorgeous, 49-yard heave to Amari Cooper on the first play from scrimmage. Enjoy Thursday's game from the sideline, D.C., we'll see you September 10.

Jalen Richard stays active in the passing game – It's been a constant theme this preseason, and it was once again the case Friday night as the Raiders running back hauled in three passes for 34 yards, good enough to tie for the team lead. During his 20 offensive snaps (29%), Richard also carried the football twice, but once again, he made his real impact in the passing game. The third-year back has had a really nice preseason; I can't wait to see how Coach Gruden utilizes him once the regular season arrives.

Chris Warren III makes reservations for six… again – After scoring last week on the road against the Los Angeles Rams, the rookie running back found the end zone once again Friday night against the Packers. Warren played 27 offensive snaps (39%), and while he didn't have the dominant outing he did last week, his fourth quarter touchdown ended up being the game winner.

Defense

Fadol Brown puts together a nice night – The second-year defensive end played 50 defensive snaps (66%) against the Packers, more than any other Raiders defender, and he made a lot of noise during his time on the field. In total, Brown finished with seven tackles, one-and-a-half sacks, one tackle for loss, three quarterback hits, and one forced fumble. Not a bad day at the office for No. 95.

Jason Cabinda leads the team in tackling – Cabinda is another guy who has very quietly enjoyed a nice preseason. The former Penn State Nittany Lion played 44 defensive snaps (58%), in Friday's preseason clash with the Packers, and once again, he was active around the football. At game's end, Cabinda totaled eight tackles, another solid outing for the rookie.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie makes his debut – The Silver and Black signed the veteran cornerback Thursday, and the very next day, we got our first look at Rodgers-Cromartie in his No. 36 jersey. Unsurprisingly, DRC played just nine defensive snaps (12%), but given the fact that he had been a Raider for a little over 24 hours, it's a pretty impressive feat nevertheless.
