The week four grades are out from Pro football focus. The Raiders had several standout performances in the game. Some of the names in the top five this week should come as no surprise, while others performance may have flew under the radar.
Maurice Hurst- 90.5
Maurice Hurst was a stat line stuffer on Sunday. The fifth round pick showed why he was considered a first round talent before it was discovered he has a heart condition.
Hurst made what was arguably the turning point play of the game when he caused a fumble with a sack on Baker Mayfield on the Cleveland five yard line. The Raiders were down 28-14 at the time and scored three plays later to cut the lead to 28-21.
Hurst ranked third in week four among all interior defensive lineman.
Reggie Nelson- 80.4
Fan favorite, Reggie Nelson earned himself a top five PFF grade in week four. Paul Guenther has had Nelson back in recent weeks, even with fans calling for his benching.
Nelson came up with an interception as time expired in the fourth quarter. Nelson also had a pass deflection to go along with three tackles.
Jared Cook- 78.1
Cook was a match up nightmare for Browns linebacker, Joe Schobert. Cook was targeted 13 times and caught 8 passes for 110 yards. Cook scored his first and second touchdown of the year as well.
On the year Cook ranks third among all tight ends with a grade of 81.8.
Derek Carr- 77.6
Derek Carr’s performance reminded Raiders fans of the 2016 version of himself. Carr engineered a second half comeback when the Raiders trailed by as many as 14.
Although, he threw interceptions six and seven on the year, the good certainly out weighed the bad.
Carr shredded the Browns defense for 437 yards and 4 touchdowns. Carr displayed grit and toughness throughout the game.
