With the Raiders first pre-season game in the books, TFDS looks at what good and bad came from the game:
We’ll start with the play of the game, a 30 yard finger-tip TD snag by rookie WR Brice Butler that gave the Raiders the go-ahead points. Butler had had a good drive even before the long TD. He had caught a deep pass on a crossing route and been able to shake his man to get down field for a 40 yard catch and run on the first play of the drive. The TD, however, was an entirely different level of concentration as it required him to lay out for the pass and grasp it with his fingertips. It was a very impressive play.
