Raiders week 14 snap counts: Three wide nearly entire game for some reason

New, comments

In a game where it seems running the ball was the key to winning, the Raiders opted for at least three wideouts nearly the entire way. In total, there were just three plays the Raiders ran that didn't have at least three wideouts on the field. One of those was the one-yard touchdown run by Latavius Murray in the second quarter.

As a result, Seth Roberts played all but 4 offensive snaps (95%) and fullback Jamize Olawale played just 7 snaps (9%).

Roberts finished with 2 catches on 9 targets, including a catch for a loss of one, a dropped touchdown pass and the final incompletion to end it. Derek Carr went 17 of 41 (41%) passing. That's 42 pass plays to 30 runs.

Filling in for Kelechi Osemele at left guard were Vadal Alexander and Jon Feliciano. What appeared to be a rotation early on, ended up being Alexander playing 88% of the snaps.
