Running back A+ For his next trick, LT plays corner, safety, tight end and special guest on "Boston Legal." Receiver C Even Gates, who can get open by 200 miles in Rhode Island, had problems finding space. Lorenzo Neal is leading receiver? Offensive line A Fill-in Jordan did an admirable job on the right; Oben and Dielman were splendid on the left. Defensive line B+ Had all four sacks (Olshansky two). Linebacker B+ Raiders wanted to run. They gained 39 yards over land. Secondary A One ankle injury after the other and guys held their own. Knocking out Moss was inspired. Special teams B Survived without Sproles. Kaeding still perfect. Kickoff coverage improves. Coaching A Schottenheimer doesn't like the Raiders and rubs it off on his players. Next opportunity (at Philadelphia) B The last time the Eagles played a game they couldn't have beaten UNLV.
