Redskins vs. Raiders: Takeaways from Oakland’S 24-14 Loss to Washington

The Oakland Raiders blew a 14-point first-quarter lead and lost 24-14 to the Washington Redskins to fall to 1-3.

The breakdowns were rampant, from an offense that gave up seven sacks and went scoreless over the final 48 minutes to a defense that inexplicably allowed Redskins’ wide receiver Pierre Garcon to score the game-winning touchdown on a quick slant without a defender laying a hand on him.

Oakland quarterback Matt Flynn, starting in place of injured Terrelle Pryor, played so poorly he was booed resoundingly throughout the game.

Even normally reliable kicker Sebastian Janikowski had an off day when he pulled a 52-yard field-goal attempt wide left.

Here’s a quick recap of some top takeaways from the game.
