Make it three in a row for the Oakland Raiders.
Following a 17-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Silver and Black are now 6-4, and have officially finished their home stand a perfect 3-0.
Next up, Head Coach Jon Gruden and the boys are hitting the road for back-to-back weeks, with a clash against the New York Jets on the immediate horizon.
We’ll have plenty of time to discuss the J-E-T-S this week, so let’s first look back at Sunday’s win over the Bengals, and see what we can learn from the playtime percentages.

Derek Carr was a machine – We’ve talked a lot about the Silver and Black’s rushing attack this season, and for good reason, but don’t get it twisted, DC is still the catalyst that makes everything work on the offensive side of the football. Per usual, Carr played every offensive snap (70) Week 11, finishing his afternoon 25 of 29 for 292 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 105.7. Just to put in perspective how well No. 4 is playing, he’s recorded a passer rating of at least 95.0 in eight consecutive games. Oh, and how could I forget Derek’s rushing TD too – the second of his career.
Josh Jacobs hits the century mark… again – Man, it sure seems like Josh Jacobs hitting the 100-yard mark is getting pretty routine at this point, doesn’t it? The ever-impressive rookie played 45 offensive snaps Sunday afternoon (64 percent), totaling 112 yards on 23 carries, averaging a stout 4.9 yards every time he touched the ball. With the 100-yard day – his fourth – Jacobs also officially surpassed Marcus Allen for the most 100-yard outings by a Raiders’ rookie.
Foster Moreau gets home – Very quietly, the rookie tight end has put together an impressive first season in Silver and Black. Against the Bengals, Moreau played 41 offensive snaps (59 percent) hauling in two passes for eight yards, including the team’s first touchdown of the day. The former LSU Tiger now has four receiving touchdowns this year, the most of any rookie tight end.
Have mercy, Maxx Crosby – The No. 106 overall pick was a man on a mission Sunday at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Crosby played 49 defensive snaps (78 percent) against the Bengals and absolutely tore up the Cincinnati offensive line, recording five tackles, four sacks, three tackles for loss, four quarterback hits, and a forced fumble. That four sacks in a game stat? That’s a Raiders’ rookie record.
Trayvon Mullen seals the deal – The Raiders needed to make a defensive stand to seal Sunday’s win, and the rookie from Clemson was more than happy to step up and do just that. Mullen played all 63 defensive snaps against the Bengals, and in addition to the aforementioned interception, he recorded five tackles and a pair of passes defensed.
Welcome to The Town, D.J. Swearinger – Talk about making an immediate impact, right? Just over a week after signing with the Silver and Black, the veteran safety played 38 defensive snaps (60 percent), recording a team-high seven tackles against the Bengals. He also earned his first start as a Raider.
