On the Raiders podcast with Tony:

#1 From the jump, there was little doubt the Indianapolis Colts’ offense took charge. Was there an inkling that this was going to be a long afternoon for the Oakland Raiders’ defense?

#2 Oakland finished with 347 yards of total offense and was 4-of-8 on third downs, but  couldn’t overcome running back Doug Martin’s (13 carries for 72 yards) fumble late in the fourth quarter in Oakland’s territory that was recovered by Indianapolis.

#3 Raider quarterback Derek Carr, who was criticized for his performance in London, had a decent afternoon last Sunday, going 21-28 for 244 yards and four touchdowns–three of those on passes and one on a carry.

#4 Former Oakland Raider Amari Cooper was compared to what is happening, Cooper who finished with a career-high 132 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries, has rushed for 100+ yards in back-to-back weeks after rushing for 126 yards on 19 carries (previous career-highs) and a touchdown last week against the Buffalo Bills.

#5 The Raiders square off with the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara this Thursday night. Tony sets this game up for us.
