Primetime was not kind to the Oakland Raiders Thursday night.
The Silver and Black traveled down 880 for a clash with the Bay Area rival San Francisco 49ers, and without much of an answer for Nick Mullens and Co., they unfortunately drove back home late Thursday night on the receiving end of a 34-3 defeat.
Because of the abbreviated week headed into Thursday Night Football, the Raiders will have the weekend off before regrouping Monday to kick off preparation for their Week 10 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
We’ll have plenty of time to discuss Philip Rivers and his friends soon enough; for now, let’s look back at the playtime percentages from Thursday night’s game, and see what we can learn from the numbers.

Hudson and Jackson go the distance –When all was said and done, the Silver and Black played seven offensive linemen Thursday night, and I very much doubt that was by design. Kolton Miller left early with a knee injury, and following his departure, the team had to get creative, imploring a multitude of combinations before game’s end. The only two Raiders who played all 57 offensive snaps were Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson.
Carr stays accurate – Before Derek Carr was pulled from action in the fourth quarter, the Raiders signal-caller had completed 16 of 21 passes for 171 yards. While his stat line from Thursday night wasn’t the most eye popping one we’ve seen from No. 4, keep in mind that he was under duress for much of the evening, as he was taken down seven times behind the line of scrimmage. In total, Carr played 47 snaps (82%) at Levi’s Stadium.
Martin stays effective – The Raiders didn’t really have a chance to feed the ground game consistently – such is the case when you’re down for a majority of the game – but give Doug Martin his due, when he got the chance, he ran effectively. The veteran running back played 26 snaps (46%) Thursday night, carrying the ball 11 times for 49 yards.

Whitehead paces the defense – As has been the case the past several weeks, Tahir Whitehead was the only Raider to play every defensive snap – 55 in this case – and in addition, he also led the team in tackles. By game’s end, Whitehead tallied seven tackles, including four tackles for loss.
Worley stays involved – The Silver and Black notched two passes defensed Thursday night at Levi’s Stadium, and both of them belonged to Daryl Worley. The athletic cornerback played 39 snaps (71%) against the 49ers, totaling three tackles, as well as the aforementioned pair of passes defensed.
Hankins makes his presence felt – Big Jonathan Hankins got some extended run against the 49ers; he played 40 defensive snaps (73%), finishing his Week 9 outing with four tackles, and two tackles for loss.
