Last week’s Thursday Night Football featured an AFC West matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers in which the Raiders were victorious in front of their home crowd. Three former Tigers were on the field for the Raiders while one was on the field for the Chargers. Clelin Ferrell and Trayvon Mullen put up huge numbers for the Raiders’ defense. Ferrell put the pressure on Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers on three different occasions, including 2.5 sacks. He split an 8-yard loss sack on the first drive of the game and later saw sacks for 7 and 3-yard losses. Mullen also contributed big to the defense with his five total tackles of which three were done alone. Switching over to the offense for the Raiders, Hunter Renfrow was given five looks, adding four receptions to his season total. Renfrow gained a total of 42 yards, his longest reception going for 14 yards on a drive that ended in a field goal for the Raiders. For the Chargers, Mike Williams was a threat on offense with two receptions for 55 yards. His longest reception was for 45 yards, putting the Chargers down to the Raiders’ 38-yard line.
