    Raiders Move to 6-1 After Romp of Patriots in New England

    Nothing went well for the Patriots for most of the game, The Raiders jumped over the Patriots early in the game and built a significant lead with the Patriots fighting back in the 2nd, but then the Raiders D turned it on and took over the game.

    The Raiders defense has been known for causing turnovers and did they cause them today as they intercepted Brady nine times in the game. The Raiders jumped on the Pats 14-0 at the beginning of the 1st quarter with two pick sixes from Curry and McClain on two consecutive Patriot possessions. That was the beginning of what was to come later in the game. All was not bad for the Patriots, Steve Slaton rushed for almost 200 yards today and when the Patriots were down 14-0, they jumped back in with a Slaton 65 yard TD run to make it 14-7. The Raiders did not stop, the defense continued to play well and the offense started getting going and the Raiders were up 24-7 in the 2nd quarter in the redzone looking to go up 31-7, but Pryor was hit on a sack and fumbled with Laweson taking it back 84 yards for a TD. Instead of potentially going up 31-7, the Patriots were able to cut the lead 24-14. After a Pryor INT, the Pats got into the endzone on a 29 yard pass to Slaton and the Patriots were even closer 24-21 and eventually tied the game 24-24 right before half. Instead of the Raiders going up 31-7, the Pryor fumble led to a score and the Pat who looked like were going to lose grasp of the game and fought back to tie the game with 30 seconds in the 1st half. Pryor took over and hit Moore and then Pryor scrambled to get into Janikowski territory, the Raiders took advantage and were able to get into FG position right before half and kick the FG to take a halftime lead of 27-24.

    With the game close now, Patriots had some momentum going into 2nd half, but all that momentum was crushed as the Raider defense continuously intercepted Brady and brought the pressure resulting in five sacks for the game. McClain had four of the INTs in the game and ran back two for TDs who now has 7 INTs on the season and looking to be defensive MVP. The Raiders poured on 34 unanswered points after the Pats tied the game behind 4 pick sixes and one fumble return for TD. The defense generated 35 of the 58 points on the day for the Raiders. Impressive performance, the Raiders look to build further their divisional lead.

    Not much to say other than "pick city."
    That LB'er needs to switch to tight end. He'd be the best one on the game.
    gg and good luck the rest of the way.
