Las Vegas Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia thanks Jon Gruden, looks to move team forward

  Las Vegas Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia thanks Jon Gruden, looks to move team forward Following his first practice since taking over for Jon Gruden, longtime NFL assistant Rich Bisaccia emphasizes ideals of "diversity, inclusion, social justice."Bisaccia, a longtime assistant and special teams coach under Gruden with the Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, began his first news conference with a statement acknowledging the unusual circumstances.

The Chicago Bears went on the road as a 5.5 point underdog, they started with consecutive three and outs, and they fell behind by field goal early. But they kept plugging away and they beat the Las Vegas Raiders by 11. And sure, it wasn’t the prettiest of wins, but it was a three phase victory that pushed them to 3-2 on the season. Most national (and local) pundits had the Bears losing this game, so I’m curious to see how the national narrative shifts with then winning on consecutive weeks.

The offense got a bit conservative at times in the second half, but with a rookie quarterback on the road, and with the lead, I understand them not wanting to take any chances.

'They have all the answers': Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis defers to NFL on Jon Gruden emails

  'They have all the answers': Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis defers to NFL on Jon Gruden emails Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis didn't have further comment on ex-coach Jon Gruden's emails, saying "Ask the NFL. They have all the answers."He still doesn't have much to say two days later, but did manage to point the finger toward the NFL.

The Bears only gained 92 yards in the second half, and they only converted one third down attempt (out of 6), but that one was a sensational third and 12 pickup in the fourth quarter on a 10 play, 57 yard drive that led to a field goal, while chewing up 6:16 of the clock.

The total offensive yards for the game was close with the Bears gaining 252 and the Raiders picking up 259, and each team ran 60 offensive plays.

In total first downs the Bears had 19 to Las Vegas’ 16. The third down conversions had Chicago going 6 for 13 (46.2%) to the Raiders’ 5 for 14 (35.7%). The penalties were 8 for 70 yards from the Bears and 10 for 82 from the Raiders.

Now let’s take a closer look at the playing time break downs for the Bears and also some of their individual stats.

Stat sheet scouts are once again going to criticize the day form Justin Fields, but the numbers don’t show how tough he was in the game. He took a big shot to the ribs, he hyperextended his knee, his calf was tightening up, and he had a couple roughing the passer penalties against him. On the afternoon he was 12 of 20 for 111 yards, for 1 TD and a passer rating of 91.9. He had 3 runs for 4 yards, he was sacked 2 times, and the Raider D was credited with 6 hits on him.

Darnell Mooney led the Bears with 35 receiving yards on 3 catches, and Allen Robinson led the Bears with 4 receptions for 32 yards.

Jester Horsted caught Fields’ TD pass in his first action this season. He’s now the only tight end on the roster to get into the end zone.

Rookie running back Khalil Herbert had a game high 18 carries for 75 yards, and Damien Williams had 16 rushes for 64 yards and a TD, and he also had 2 receptions for 20 yards.

The five o-linemen, back up right tackle Elijah Wilkinson who came in for an injured Germain Ifedi, extra blocker Alex Bars, the tight ends, and occasional fullback Ryan Nall, all did a a fine job run blocking for most of the day, although there were a couple short yardage stuffs that killed drives.

5 bold predictions for Raiders against Chargers

  5 bold predictions for Raiders against Chargers The Las Vegas Raiders look to stay undefeated after facing the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4. There are only five undefeated teams left entering NFL Week 4, and the Las Vegas Raiders are absolutely one of them. While all three of their wins have been of the dramatic variety, 3-0 is 3-0. The o nly other undefeated team in the AFC just so happens to be one of the Raiders' biggest rivals in the Denver Broncos. Of course, if they want to keep the streak alive, the Silver and Black must find a way to win on the road vs. the division rival Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 4.

Trevis Gipson had a sack, 2 tackles, and a TFL.

DeAndre Houston-Carson (1 tackle) had the games only interception as the Bears went with plenty of three safety looks on the day.
