Raiders big on D
NASHVILLE — To quarterback Derek Carr, it's time for critics to stop picking on the Raiders defense, which had allowed 69 points through two games (only the Colts had allowed more). "They won the game for us," Carr said. "That right there was a prime example of what I've seen every day in practice." The Raiders forced three turnovers after coming into this game having given up more yards than any team since at least 1940 through two games. Coach Jack Del Rio made a couple of lineup changes, starting linebacker Cory James and rookie safety Karl Joseph.
