A week off helped cure the Raiders offensive woes even without Amari and Marshawn around.

The defense still is plagued by the problems that have been evident all season and a major reason why the Raiders are such a big disappointment in Jon Gruden’s first year back as head coach.

The Raiders (1-6) allowed Marlon Mack and the Colts to run for 222 yards and gave up three touchdown passes from Andrew Luck to his trio of tight ends.

The Oakland defense failed to generate a sack or takeaway in a 42-28 loss that came after what players and coaches felt was the best week of practice for the defense all season.
