Raiders at Saints – By the numbers

It was a tough night for the Raiders, but it’s only the preseason and better to have your flaws exposed now.

Here are some interesting numbers from last night’s game.

1-1: This is the 28th time that the Raiders have had a 1-1 record in the preseason. The latest occurrence was in 2009.

2-4: The Raiders’ preseason record vs. the Saints. The Raiders are 5-6-1 vs. the Saints in the regular season.

73.3%: Matt Flynn’s completion percentage (44-60) in his last five preseason games.

56.3%: Terrelle Pryor’s completion percentage (18-32) in his last five preseason games.

14: Flynn’s rushing yards in his last five preseason games (4 carries).

146: Pryor’s rushing yards in his last five preseason games (15 carries). Obviously Flynn and Pryor each bring a different set of skills to the game.

7: The Saints sacked the Raiders’ quarterbacks seven times. Since the NFL officially began to keep track of sacks in 1982, the Raiders are 1-14 in regular-season games in which they have allowed seven or more sacks.

10th: Next week the Raiders will face the Chicago Bears for the 10th time in the preseason. The first time these teams met in the preseason was 1977, that was also the last time - until next week- that the Bears traveled to Oakland for a preseason game.
