Oakland’s meeting against Baltimore Sunday was one of the most entertaining games in week two of the NFL season. The Raiders improved to 1-1 on the season and at home, after its 37-33 win over the Ravens. The game featured three ex-Alabama players: Amari Cooper, C.J. Mosley and Courtney Upshaw. Cooper caught seven passes on 11 targets for 109 yards.

His touchdown came on Oakland’s first possession of the game, a 68-yard reception from quarterback Derek Carr. Cooper averaged 15.6 yards per catch against Baltimore’s defense.

Mosley anchored Baltimore’s defense with nine tackles (eight solo), a pass defended and a quarterback hurry. Courtney Upshaw chimed in with two total tackles.

Oakland will travel to FirstEnergy Stadium next week to face the Cleveland Browns.
