Our D-line always look weak during the Preseason.
Sometimes when some position looks weak, you have to go back and look carefully to fully figure out why.
We gave up a touchdown run, but they ran right at the only open slot on the line. We were out schemed on that one.
The Raiders were in max protect pretty often, we also rushed only three lineman at times, included DHB's big first down completion. I am not a big fan of the 3 lineman rush.
McDonald and Smith were still pretty good at applying pressure. There was nothing really out of the ordinary. RJF and Soap were solid and are dominant in the run when single blocked. The Raiders made some excellent throws and made some big plays on us. They made the right play calls at the right time too.
Despite this, we were the ones with the big lead at halftime don't forget.
