The Raiders' report card for Sunday's 38-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints:
Quarterbacks: D More and more, Carson Palmer’s faults (2 ints) seem to outweigh his positives (312 yards).
Running Backs: A Marcel Reece was stellar moving from FB to HB to fill in for injured McFadden and Goodson.
Receivers: D TE Brandon Myers dropped 2 passes, and WR Denarius Moore continues to struggle.
Offensive Line: B The Saints brought a lot of blitzes, and the line held up for the most part.
Defensive Line: D Very quiet games for Tommy Kelly and Lamarr Houston.
Linebackers: C The stat book says Rolando McClain made 10 tackles, but it sure didn’t feel like it.
Defensive Backs: F New Orleans’ bevy of dangerous receivers was open all day long.
Special Teams: D A 75-yard kickoff return by Saints’ Travaris Cadet, and a rare day of mediocrity for P Shane Lechler.
Coaching/Overall: F The Oakland defense seems unable to stop anybody right now, least of all the dangerous Saints.
