 ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - A new defensive scheme that was supposed to transform a struggling unit has led to perhaps the least productive defense in Oakland Raiders history.
The Raiders (1-3) returned to practice Monday after having four days off for their bye week looking for answers on how to fix a defense that is on pace to allow the most points and yards in a season in team history.
They will be tested right out of their bye, with a cross-country trip to Atlanta (5-0) on tap to face Matt Ryan and an offense that has scored touchdowns on the highest percentage of drives in the league so far.
