Admit it. You thought that Bears linebacker Khalil Mack would run roughshod over the Raiders, the team that traded him after Jon Gruden took over as head coach last year. Mack did recover a fumble yesterday but his Bears couldn’t hold a 21-17 fourth quarter lead. The Raiders executed a 97 yard drive, capped off by rookie running back Josh Jacobs’ touchdown plunge. Jacobs finished with 123 yards rushing against the Bears vaunted defense. Oakland capped off the win by intercepting Bears quarterback Chase Daniels with under two minutes left in the game. The Raiders started off the game in surprisingly dominant fashion and led 17-0 at halftime. The Bears came back with 21 unanswered second half points and seemed to have the game in hand. Oakland was about to punt but a Bears player was flagged for running into the kicker. The penalty gave the Raiders a fourth and one and they executed a fake punt, picked up the first down, and continued their game winning drive. Oakland now has a bye week and will travel to Green Bay to play the Packers on Sunday, October 20.
