Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing, on not using Marshawn Lynch on a 4th and 1 opportunity last week in Mexico City against the Patriots: “Yeah that's my fault. I should've gotten Marshawn in there. I should've tagged him in the personnel grouping. In that situation, we would normally have him in there. I think he had run it a couple of times previously to that and was getting a little bit of a breather, so we plugged ‘Maze' (Jamize Olawale), who's our second short-yardage back, in there. But you can pin that on me; I ,should've had (Lynch) in there.”

John Pagano, on how the Raiders defense will look different under him: “We just have to go out and we have to play better. We have to coach better. We have to do a lot of things different. We have to create turnovers. I think that's the biggest thing missing from any defense. You have to get off the field on third down. We have to go out there, we have to affect the quarterback and make him uncomfortable. I think when those things happen, that gives you that confidence to keep doing the things that you want to do differently. We're going to go out there, we're going to play hard. The one thing I've always stressed and always been about is technique, fundamentals and unbelievable effort. I think those three things can get you home."

Time for Raiders to focus on draft?

Defensive inconsistency has all but derailed the playoff hopes for the Raiders, who FPI projects to have just a 4 percent chance of qualifying for the postseason. Even landing a top-10 pick appears to be worse than a coin-flip proposition for Oakland.

Grading the quarterback play for the Raiders
