Saints start too fast for Raiders

Posted with 1:57 remaining . . .
The Raiders couldn’t get started Friday night, and the result was a 28-20 preseason loss to the New Orleans Saints before 72,112 fans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

With the Saints having their way at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and Drew Brees slicing up the secondary, the Saints led 23-0 before Matt Flynn led a late touchdown drive on a two-minute drill before the half.

In the third quarter, a David Bass fumble of Seneca Wallace was recovered by Ryan Robinson for a defensive touchdown and an Omar Gaither interception of a deflected pass set up a 46-yard field goal by Eddy Carmona to get the Raiders within 23-17.

In the fourth quarter, Will Herring stuffed Jamize Olawale in the end zone for a safety not long after the Raiders had stuffed the Saints on a fourth-and-1 play inside the 5-yard line. New Orleans finished the scoring with Garrett Hartley’s fourth field goal of the game, this one from 28 yards.

The Raiders, 1-1 in the preseason, headed home realizing they found out a lot more good things about players they hoped to make the team than they did about the ones that will be their starters.

When the Saints and Raiders were playing their first team, it was a mismatch from the outset.

Brees had his way with the Raiders as he has in four previous preseason and regular-season games. He completed 14 of 18 passes for 202 yards and a 16-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills on a play in which he had several seconds to throw.

Every New Orleans possession produced points until backup Seneca Wallace came in and kneeled on the ball to end the first half. Hartrley had field goals of 53, 31 and 30 yards and Mark Ingram had a 2-yard touchdown run.

The Saints were up 23-0 before they dialed back the pressure tactics, which helped Flynn direct an 82-yard, 11-play touchdown drive that ended in an 18-yard touchdown pass to Denarius Moore.

Before that drive, the Raiders had only a single first down in the half, with the Saints registering five sacks of Flynn.

Flynn ended his half completing 12 of 16 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown, most of that compiled on the last drive.

Veteran Alex Barron, getting first crack at the left tackle job which will be open for the foreseeable future with Jared Veldheer out following triceps surgery, struggled trying to block former Cal star Cameron Jordan.

The second-team defense go the Raiders back in the game by forcing two turnovers, but backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor struggled during his one quarter of play. Pryor was 1 of 5 for 9 yards and ran four times for 15 yards.

    “Yeah, Kell and Raider O are showing their usual levels of ignorance. Good thing Priest is missing.”

    So funny but they are the ones who call people racists all day long in here….I could care less if people think I am a racist on a blog so bring it I will be your personal Hitler.

    A long time ago when I was younger someone called me a dirty hippie and I laughed because I knew I showered daily. One day I called Raider O dirty Arab and you would have thought I sent a train full of jewish people to Auschwitz.

    So yeah if a person says you are smelly and do not shower it’s considered being a racist.
