With 11 penalties for 117 yards against the Jaguars in week 7, the Raiders had an ugly performance, despite the win. And with 2:00 left in the second quarter against the Buccaneers today, they were already close to matching that number.
The Raiders had 10 penalties for 86 yards in the first half alone. As you might expect, most of them were of the stupid variety.
The penalties sent the Raiders to the locker room down 10-3. That field goal came after the Raiders had been in first and goal at the 3-yard-line, only to be backed up to the 19-yard-line on a delay of game penalty on Derek Carr and an offensive pass interference on Michael Crabtree.
Jack Del Rio said heading into the locker room that the Raiders issues scoring were primarily “self inflicted penalties”.
Here’s the breakdown of the penalties (so far):
Michael Crabtree taunting 12 yards
David Ameson holding 5 yards
Gabe Jackson holding 10 yards
Derek Carr intentional grounding 14 yards, loss of downs
Raiders holding on punt return 0 yards
Derek Carr delay of game 5 yards
Michael Crabtree offensive pass interference 10 yards
David Amerson holding declined
Malcom Smith Unsportsmanlike conduct (hit QB on slide) 15 yards
Darius Latham illegal use of hands on return 0 yards
Vadal Alexander illegal formation (didn’t report as eligible receiver) 5 yards
That’s 10 penalties for 86 yards. Which I guess means they get a free sub.
