Raiders report card

Quarterbacks

Pryor made a lot of plays with his feet – including a 93-yard run – but passed for just 88 yards.

C

Oakland Raiders vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

X

Running Backs

Other than Darren McFadden's two TDs, it was a quiet day for the backs.

C

Receivers

Brice Butler batted an interception to a Steeler, and Jacoby Ford fumbled away a reception.

D

Offensive Line

It was all downhill for this makeshift line after the 93-yard play to start the game.

D

Defensive Line

Lamarr Houston (5 tackles, 2 for loss) was a beast, and some lesser names stepped up, too.

A

Linebackers

Two sacks for Sio Moore, and five tackles for Kevin Burnett.

B

Defensive Backs

This is the Raiders' most improved unit. Corners Mike Jenkins and Tracy Porter had fourth-quarter interceptions.

A

Special Teams

Big punts both ways: Rashad Jennings tipped one, Steelers' Antonio Brown had a 44-yard return and Ford nearly botched one.

C

Coaching/Overall

Great defensive game plan; too bad the offensive plan got so conservative in the second half.
