Anonymous Rams defender said Derek Carr was 'scared to take shots'

Anonymous Rams defender said Derek Carr was 'scared to take shots'”

The Oakland Raiders came into Week 1 with high expectations, and after a strong first half, it looked like they just may hang with NFC West champion Los Angeles.

But at least Mack didn't have the chance to directly terrorize his old club, which lost 33-13 to the Los Angeles Rams in its season opener.

"For Raider nation, you got one of the best defensive players in the National Football League - figure out a way!"

And on a night the Raiders threw the ball 40 times, Cooper and Nelson combined for seven targets, four receptions and 32 yards.

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden speaks during a news conference at Oakland Raiders headquarters on January 9, 2018 in Alameda, California. Unfortunately, Carr struggled mightily during the season opener, throwing three interceptions, one of which was in the end zone, and another that was returned for a touchdown to ice the game.

It capped a dominant second-half performance by the Rams defense.

Gruden had said leading up to Monday night's game that Mack "didn't want" to be in Oakland anymore. Obviously we didn't get to Goff enough.

The reigning NFL coach of the year showed he is not going to stand pat after orchestrating a team that led the league in scoring last season.
