OAKLAND – Bruce Irvin is used to playing most of the Raiders' defenders. The seasoned Edge Rusher played nearly 1,000 in 2016 and was nearly 900 as basic equipment in the base and sub packages last season.
His role has declined under the co – ordinator Paul Guenther, although he is the team 's only established edge rusher Englisch: www.mjfriendship.de/en/index.php?op…=view&id=167 He played only 24 defensively – Snaps in a 42-28 defeat to Indianapolis on Sunday, and had no statistics or quarterback pressure on his name
This is highly unusual for him and a sign that he is not getting along with this scheme as well as he expected. It must also be a disappointment, considering that he was expected to lead the defense batch and a young line to Khalil Mack.
It did not work, and the Raiders have the worst run of the NFL by far. According to the analysis website Pro Football Focus, the Raiders are in last place with 56 total hits. The Detroit Lions are ranked 31
The Raiders aggressively opted for Brandon LaFell to take Amari Cooper's place on the grid. The veteran played 46 of 50 offensive snapshots, with three fangs for 39 yards and a touchdown.
Martavis Bryant's role did not take a bit. He only played seven offensive snapshots, the Raiders loser in the draft day trade, where Bryant was won by Pittsburgh for a third round.
Doug Martin stepped into feature role with Marshawn Lynch on injured reserve Jalen Richard retains his role as third.
