 ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - With their offense still struggling to score points, the Oakland Raiders increasingly have had to rely on a defense that has been surprisingly stout against the run this season.
Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, who has never been part of a top 10 defense in his nine NFL seasons, expects more.
The Raiders (3-4) have allowed 55 yards rushing or fewer in three of their last five games and are giving up an average of just 102.1 yards a game on the ground overall. That's a marked difference from 2011 when opponents rushed for 136.1 yards per game against Oakland.
The last time the Raiders were this good against the run? That was in 2002 - the last year they made the playoffs.
