All you see out there is hunger for a win. has been dominant against the run, where he is the biggest reason for a dramatic turnaround recent weeks by the Raiders. Oakland has allowed just 2 yards per carry October, second to Denver for the NFL lead. is tied with Tampa Bay’s Lavonte David for the NFL lead with 8 2 tackles behind the line of scrimmage against the run, including 5 2 the past two weeks. He’s going to be measured whether or not he sacks the quarterback, but I would just say that it’s been a time since I’ve seen somebody do that the run game, interim coach Tony Sparano said.
