Aside from the ref show, that wasn't a terrible game. You can tell how much better the Raiders are this year – good offensive line play, better coverage, lots of easy check-down options for Derek Carr when the downfield stuff isn't there. They're having a good year, and it's hard not to wonder how much better the offense would have been had Antonio Brown not gone insane.
• It was a modest game for Carr, but he made good decisions, didn't make mistakes and moved the offense. The Philip Rivers' pick six cost him a possession in the first half, too.
• Josh Jacobs hits the hole decisively and breaks tackles. He doesn't strike me as an elite talent, but he's rock solid and money in the bank fantasy-wise running behind that offensive line.
• No Raider receiver gets consistent targets these days, as Carr checks it down to various backs and tight ends too.
• Rivers threw the two picks early, including one that was taken to the house, and he should have had a third in the red zone, but for a neutral-zone infraction. He also took five sacks, a couple of them of the coverage variety, i.e., he should have gotten rid of it.
• Melvin Gordon is all the way back to being the top-10 pick he was before the holdout. He's the clear workhorse, with Austin Ekeler functioning as a standard change-of-pace/backup, albeit one that also has value independently as a quasi-wide receiver.
• Keenan Allen had 11 targets, but only 68 yards. He had one big play called back, but he's not a red-zone or typical big-play threat. Hunter Henry may have supplanted Mike Williams as the team's primary red-zone target too.
• What a bad time to miss a PAT by Daniel Carlson – luckily the Raiders defense bailed him out.
