Final: Falcons 23, Raiders 20


Sorry for the delay . . . issues with Internet specfically related to posting on the blog. But as Carson Palmer might say, no excuses. It’s on my shoulders.

Anyway, here’s a link to the game story in Bay Area News Group papers.

Here’s a link to a story by correspondent Guy Curtwright on an Oakland pass defense that picked off its first three passes of the season and improved dramatically but gave up just enough ground in the end to Matt Ryan for Matt Bryant to kick a 55-yard field goal.

Here’s a link to the Raiders notebook, with Carson Palmer taking the blame for the defeat.

    55 is not on the 3rd down defense.

    And Adams is starting at CB for Lee.

    Good changes. Faster on 3rd downs.
