Darrius Heyward-Bey caught three passes for 43 yards during Monday night's game between the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers. Derek Hagan led the wide receiver corps with 44 yards off four catches. Both were targeted five times each. Rod Streater was targeted 10 times, but managed just 27 yards off four receptions. He did score a six-yard touchdown, however.
Analysis: The Raiders' receiving corps missed Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford greatly. Carson Palmer and the Raiders were simply petrified to throw deep against the Chargers. The check down options in the offense saw a lot of work, hence an absurd number of targets for the rookie Streater. Expect Moore and Ford to create more space for Heyward-Bey downfield, and hopefully spur what was a very shaky Oakland offense.
