Raiders don't have time to rest
Monday, December 5, 2011
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders don't have much time to get over Sunday's lopsided loss in Miami.
With a trip to undefeated Green Bay this week, whatever problems the Raiders (7-5) had against the Dolphins better get corrected in a hurry.
There's plenty to fix, too.
A sputtering offense that punted on eight of its first nine possessions against Miami. The defense which allowed 209 yards rushing, continuing a season-long troublesome trend. The special teams also had a critical breakdown.
There's also the controversy over middle linebacker Rolando McClain playing three days after his arrest on misdemeanor assault, firearms and other charges in his Alabama hometown.
Moving on from all of that might be just as challenging for the Raiders as facing the Packers (12-0).
