Week 16: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Derek Carr posted 27/56 for 202 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown during the game at Kansas City last week. Andre Holmes (12 targets for 5/70/0 receiving) led the team in receiving last week, while James Jones (11 for 8/57/1) and Mychal Rivera (12 for 7/39/0) were all three into double-digits territory regarding targets during Week 14. Even with nearly sixty passes attempted, Carr remained close to 200 yards passing during the game - the Raiders aren't throwing down the field much while Tony Sparano is the head coach. The Bill's pass D is fifth in the league averaging 210.1 yards allowed per game, with 14 TDs given up balanced by 19 interceptions (second in the NFL) and 49 sacks generated (first in the NFL). This is one of the best all-around pass defenses in the NFL, folks. They limited Aaron Rodgers to 17/42 for 175 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -10 yards. This is an impressive group that tastes blood in the air - it's hard to move the football against the Bills' secondary. This looks like a bad matchup for the Oakland offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs STL (6 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Holmes had a step on his man on a deep ball down the left sideline to open the game and hauled the pass in. Unfortunately the pass was thrown just wide of the field of play. His 16 yard grab came from Matt Schaub. Schaub hit him on a deep post after Holmes shook the coverage.

2014 Week 14 vs SF (5 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)

Holmes day was even more frustrating with a dropped touchdown and a long catch called back because of an obvious push off. His drop would have been a tough catch, with Carr throwing a back shoulder fade down around his knees. He did have a couple of big plays, including a 16 yard gain on a deep hitch that was very well run by Holmes.

2014 Week 15 vs KC (12 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)

Holmes did well on most of his targets outside of a bad drop on a deep post in the 4th quarter. He made a nice leaping catch on a quick slant to snatch the ball away from a defender and won a jump ball in the 4th quarter for a 33 yard gain. That jump ball came on a ball heaved down the left sideline where Holmes jumped over the corner, hauled in the pass, and landed with the ball on top of the defender. Holmes saw a target in the end zone but had no chance to get to the ball because he was interfered with, setting up a first and goal.
